How will Carson Wentz and Dak Prescott fare in their second week of NFL action? Statista and SI took a look at past results of rookie quarterbacks since 2011 and how they fared in the week that followed.

Wentz is coming off a victory over the Cleveland Browns that included 278 passing yards and two touchdowns. Prescott and the Cowboys fell to the New York Giants in their season opener, as the former Mississippi State quarterback passed for 227 yards with no touchdowns and 55.6% of passes completed.

Since 2012, every rookie quarterback except Jameis Winston has slightly regressed in their second game.

Winston's second-year leap is a product of loyalty and the long ball
