Grading Luck, RGIII, Wilson and Their Three Exceptional Week 13 Performances

At this point, there's little question that the rookie-quarterback class of 2012 will go down as one of the best rookie classes ever to grace the NFL. While it's too early to say if it will rival the legendary 1983 class that featured the likes of John Elway, Dan Marino and Jim Kelly, it isn't too early to marvel at their outstanding performances when they occur—and Week 13 served up three for the ages.

From Andrew Luck's last-second-touchdown pass to beat the Detroit Lions to Russell Wilson's masterful job engineering a 97-yard drive to take a late lead against the Bears and then his play in overtime to win it, not to mention RGIII's efficient and overall excellent performance against division-rival New York, Week 13 saw a host of memorable moments from the young signal-callers. 

In the video above, Josh Zerkle and I give our grades for each of these performances and offer our takes on each. Let us know in the comments below where you agree or disagree and what grade you'd give these remarkable games from these three young franchise quarterbacks.
