WHAT TO LOOK FOR ON MNF:  One more note to keep in mind for tonight’s Monday Night Football game between the Panthers and Eagles…

 

ROOKIE PASSERS: Four rookie quarterbacks – Washington’s ROBERT GRIFFIN III, Indianapolis’ ANDREW LUCK, Miami’s RYAN TANNEHILL and Cleveland’s BRANDON WEEDEN – have led their teams to victories in Week 12. The 2012 rookie quarterbacks have won 26 starts, the most in a season since the 1970 merger.

 

Five rookie quarterbacks – Luck (seven), Seattle’s RUSSELL WILSON (six), Griffin (five), Tannehill (five) and Weeden (three) – have combined for those 26 wins.

 

Philadelphia’s NICK FOLES will start at quarterback tonight against Carolina and could add to the record total.

 

Luck’s seven wins are tied for the most by a rookie quarterback who was drafted No. 1 overall since the 1970 merger (SAM BRADFORD, 2010). Luck has passed for 3,205 yards, the most by a rookie quarterback in NFL history through his team’s first 11 games.

 

The most combined wins, passing yards, touchdown passes and completions by rookie quarterbacks in a season all occurred in 2011. This year’s crop of rookie QBs surpassed three of those four marks in Week 12 – wins, passing yards and completions.

 

Following is a look at the combined totals by rookie quarterbacks in the 2011 and 2012 seasons:
