Something must’ve been in the air this weekend for the rookie quarterback’s as there has been some outstanding play from the young fellas. This might actually be the first (hopefully, not the last) week where the first-round rookie quarterback’s have all played a pretty solid game.

Week five was an exciting slate of games, and we will definitley see some changes in this week’s rookie quarterback power rankings. So, who’s the top dog going to be? Let’s get to it!
