Terry Bradshaw ranked RGIII third among rookie quarterbacks

Whoops! At least through Week 1, that seemed to be an unfortunate ranking.

The four other rookie QBs who started on Sunday combined for two touchdowns and 11 interceptions in four losses. Griffin had two touchdowns and zero interceptions in a win.

Here they are, by quarterback ranking:

1) RGIII: 19-for-26, 320 yards, 2 TDs, 0 INTs, 139.9 rating

2) Russell Wilson: 18-for-34, 153 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT, 62.5 rating

3) Andrew Luck: 23-for-45, 309 yards, 1 TD, 3 INTs, 52.9 rating

4) Ryan Tannehill: 20-for-36, 219 yards, 0 TD, 3INTs, 39.0 rating

5) Brandon Weeden: 12-for-35, 118 yards, 0 TD, 4 INTs, 5.1 rating
