Passing grades: Russell Wilson one of three rookie QBs to win Sunday

Russell Wilson performs 'really cool' for Pete Carroll's offense
By Jerry Brewer | The Seattle Times

Last week, the league's five rookie quarterbacks who are starting combined for 11 interceptions and one victory. Robert Griffin III was the only one of the five, who wasn't picked off. He was also the only one of the five whose team won.

This week, the results were much more favorable for both the rookie quarterbacks and their teams:
