The 'Most passing touchdowns as a rookie' quiz

Urban Meyer's first season in Jacksonville has gotten off to a rocky start, to say the least. From highly questionable staffing hires to the Tebow as a tight end experiment to inadvertently saying the quiet part out loud, Meyer quickly became an NFL punchline. Despite all of that, Week 1 was a chance to wipe the slate clean. Unfortunately for Meyer, he failed spectacularly, allowing the hapless Houston Texans to thrash his Jags by a score of 37-21. As you can imagine, the NFL world was not kind to Meyer following the game. And sure, it's just one week of a 17-game schedule, but if things remain this dour in Duval it's fair to wonder, given his history, whether or not Meyer will be around long enough to see this rebuild all the way through.

Which brings us to today's quiz of the day. If there was a silver lining to Jacksonville's performance on Sunday, it's that No. 1 overall pick Trevor Lawrence looked good, throwing for over 300 yards and three touchdowns. In the Super Bowl era, only 29 rookie QBs have thrown for 16 or more TDs in their first season, with Lawrence likely to join that list by season's end. So with that in mind, how many of the rookie NFL quarterbacks with the most touchdowns in the Super Bowl era can you name in five minutes?

Good luck!
