2021 NFL Rookies of the Week: Week 4


In Week 4, we witnessed positive play from the quarterback class. Here are some of the best rookie performances from this past weekend:

Honorable Mentions: Dallas Cowboys LB Micah Parsons (4 tackles, 1 sack), Philadelphia Eagles RB Kenneth Gainwell (89 total yards, 1 TD), New York Giants WR Kadarius Toney (7 receptions, 78 yards)

3. WR DeVonta Smith, Philadelphia Eagles

Smith had a breakout game for the Philadelphia Eagles in their competitive loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Smith finished with seven receptions for 122 receiving yards, proving he has the potential to be the reliable target Philadelphia originally hoped for.

2. QB Mac Jones, New England Patriots

Jones showed that he belongs in the spotlight this past Sunday, arguably outperforming Tom Brady in his return to Foxborough. The rookie threw for 275 yards and two touchdowns against Tampa Bay on Sunday. Despite an early interception, Jones settled and in and kept New England throughout the duration of the game.

1. QB Zach Wilson, New York Jets

Wilson put together a great performance in his first career NFL victory on Sunday over the Tennessee Titans. He compiled 297 yards to go with two touchdowns and an interception. Fans are hoping this marks a complete turnaround for Wilson after a disappointing start to the season.
