Grades for every NFL team's performance in Week 3
The Sports Daily
Week 3 of the NFL season is now in the books, and various rookie quarterbacks are already beginning to take the reins as starters for their respective teams.
Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr already has some company. Fellow rookie quarterbacks Teddy Bridgewater and Blake Bortles made their regular season debuts Sunday. Bridgewater came in because of an injury and Bortles entered the game due to Chad Henne's skill set and ineptitude.
Of the five quarterbacks taken in the first two rounds of the draft, four have already taken snaps under center. Johnny Manziel played in Sunday's game for two plays, one as a quarterback and one as a wide receiver. Unlike Manziel, Bortles and Bridgewater are more than just a sideshow. They're expected to start for awhile and will probably do so for the duration of this season (assuming they stay healthy).
Carr is still searching for his first win after three starts, although the Raiders gave the Patriots a scare on Sunday. The Raiders remain winless, but they played hard and earned a better grade than the Jaguars and Buccaneers, the NFL's other two winless teams.
On the other end of the spectrum, the Cincinnati Bengals, Philadelphia Eagles and Arizona Cardinals are the league's three remaining unbeatens after Week 3.
