The NFL is barreling into Week 5 with one significant trend continuing — young quarterbacks are winning games. Eleven of the 15 winning teams this past week have a quarterback who is 26 years old or younger, bringing their collective total wins for the season to 39. That marks the most wins by quarterbacks 26 years or younger through four weeks in NFL history.
At least four games this week match up youthful quarterbacks. The Jacksonville Jaguars and Gardner Minshew travel to Carolina to play the Panthers and Kyle Allen (1:00 PM ET, CBS). Jameis Winston and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are at New Orleans to face Teddy Bridgewater and the Saints (1:00 PM ET, FOX). One of the New York Jets’ young starters, either Sam Darnold or Luke Falk, will be in Philadelphia to meet Carson Wentz and the Eagles (1:00 PM ET, CBS). The Pittsburgh Steelers and Mason Rudolph host the Baltimore Ravens and Lamar Jackson (1:00 PM ET, CBS).
The 2019 London series kicks off on Sunday when one of the original NFL teams, the Chicago Bears, faces an original AFL team, the Oakland Raiders. This contest (1:00 PM ET, FOX) marks the first NFL game at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The new facility will become the 187th venue to host a regular-season or postseason game in league history.
