Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III among rookie highlights

Last week was almost impossibly easy for the five starting rookie quarterbacks around the NFL. In Week 3, they came back to Earth. Let's get our highlights rolling. You can't find these anywhere else.

Andrew Luck wasn't very efficient, but he threw for more than 300 yards. Unfortunately, his coach might have cost the Indianapolis Colts a win by getting too conservative late in a 22-17 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins went triple-option crazy. He got hit a lot again, and the Redskins couldn't pass at all in the first half before making a spirited comeback attempt in a 38-31 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Ryan Tannehill would have improbably had the Miami Dolphins at 2-1 if the team didn't miss a kick in overtime against the New York Jets. Tannehill mostly made good decisions and reacted to pressure well except for an interception returned for a touchdown. (Yes, that's a big "except.")

Brandon Weeden's tendency to stare down his targets showed up in the Cleveland Browns' 24-14 loss to the Buffalo Bills. He missed on a few deep balls and took a while to make decisions.
