Winston on Mariota: ‘We’re Like Two Horses at a Racetrack’


Move along, move along. Nothing to see here. Just a pair of rookie quarterbacks, drafted first and second overall, both Heisman Trophy winners and opponents in their NFL debuts.

It just isn’t being generated by what the coaches and quarterbacks have to say. And it hasn’t been particularly embraced by them, either.
