Week 5 of the NFL season is typically when things begin to normalize, but there was nothing predictable about how the young quarterbacks performed last Sunday. And not only did they perform well, but they also led their respective teams to wins, combining for a perfect 4-0 record on the weekend. 


That is the first time that's ever happened in NFL history. 

​​Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield led his squad to their second win in three games, leaving the whole town abuzz...no free beer for this one, though. It certainly wasn't a pretty win, but a key play on third-down in overtime was instrumental in the outcome. 

New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold arguably had his best day as a professional, going 10-for-22 with three touchdown passes. He's not necessarily the well-polished product fans expected after his hot start to the season, but the Jets are still playing competitive football. 

Bills QB Josh Allen also led his team to victory, and most of his success has come via scrambling out of the pocket. #BillsMafia likely won't be too thrilled about the 82 passing yards he had, but they'll take any win they can get at this point. 

Last, but certainly not least, Josh Rosen of the Arizona Cardinals was finally able to get his team their first win of the season. Rosen's day wasn't a great one statistically (10-for-25, 170 passing yards, TD), but he did drop a serious 75-yard bomb to fellow rookie wide receiver, Christian Kirk. 

It looks like the future of the NFL is in good hands.
