Not everyone was as productive and successful as Washington Redskins rookie Robert Griffin III. Of the five rookie quarterbacks starting in Week 1, only RGIII won a game. Perhaps because he was the only one who didn't throw an interception. Perhaps not.

Here's a look at the numbers on all five rookie debuts.

PLAYER TEAM COMP ATT PCT YDS TD INT W/L
Robert Griffin III Redskins 19 26 73.1 320 2 0 W, 40-32
Andrew Luck Colts 23 45 51.1 309 1 3 L, 41-21
Ryan Tannehill Dolphins 20 36 55.6 219 0 3 L, 30-10
Brandon Weeden Browns 12 35 34.3 118 0 4 L, 17-16
