Cam Newton is turning in one of the most impressive rookie seasons that we have seen in a long time. Though ideally we would like to see his interceptions down, you can't expect a rookie to be perfect while throwing almost 40 times a game.
On the other end is Christian Ponder, another 2011 first-round pick who started his first NFL game last weekend. Ponder was inserted in the lineup during an unfavorable matchup against the reigning Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers.
Ponder didn't complete a high percentage of his passes but certainly looked like the spark the Vikings needed as he threw for two touchdowns.
This weekend's matchup features two teams that have combined for just three wins but also showcases two quarterbacks that will be the future of this league.
How do these two rookie quarterbacks compare for this Sunday's game?
