Jameis Winston had a prime time opportunity to put his talents on display Thursday as the Bucs took on the Rams.

Winston continued to perform among the top rookie quarterbacks of recent decades.

When the Bucs picked Winston first in the NFL draft and the Titans took Marcus Mariota No. 2, the Tampa Bay Times created a database of all first round quarterbacks since 1980. Each week, we plug in the statistics and compare Winston and Mariota against the others at the same points in their careers.

Winston ranks sixth on the list with a quarterback rating of 85.5, just between Matt Ryan at 90 and Jim Kelly at 83.6.

Mariota, who ranks fourth at 91.9, just ahead of Ryan, plays Sunday as the Titans visit New England.
