We're tallying up the statistics and evaluating the performances of the 2015 NFL draft's top two picks. Here are the results from Week 3:
Mariota: 27-of-44 passing, 367 yards, two touchdowns, two interceptions in Tennessee's 35-33 loss to Indianapolis.
From Paul Kuharsky: Marcus Mariota is becoming a viable fantasy quarterback. ... In the right week, he could be a good play. Read the rest of the story here.
Winston: 17-of-36 passing, 261 yards, one touchdown, one interception in Tampa Bay's 19-9 loss to Houston.
From Jeremy Fowler: The Bucs couldn't run the ball (57 yards on 20 carries), which is a concern because Jameis Winston is still erratic with his accuracy. But at least Winston showed some big-game moments, including two beautiful downfield throws to Louis Murphy in the fourth to approach the red zone. Read the rest of the story here.

Stats will not show it, but that was by far Jameis Winston's best game as a pro. 19 incompletions, but 2 throwaways, and another 8-10 drops.— Bud Elliott (@TomahawkNation) September 27, 2015
