Two rookie quarterbacks started their respective team's first regular season game, launching their careers with starts every week since; Cincinnati Bengals' Andy Dalton and Carolina Panthers' Cam Newton. And there's more than a good chance that the offensive rookie of the year award will come down to these two men; with Newton putting together the more impressive statistics and Dalton putting together the more relevant ones -- wins.

Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green could factor into consideration, on pace to post 77 receptions for 1,208 yards receiving and nearly 11 touchdowns receiving. For now the Andy Dalton and Cam Newton comparisons.
