Michael Garcia - September 7, 2012

Never before have five NFL teams started rookies at quarterback in week one, but that's about to change. Five rooks will walk into stadiums this weekend, but only one will come out victorious. Yep, only one team has a real shot at getting a win with their new signal caller, but that's to be expected.

Four of the five are on the road, so that isn't helping, but it's actually one of the road teams that I think will sneak out a win.

Robert Griffin III leads Washington in New Orleans. Andrew Luck takes the Colts into Chicago. Ryan Tannehill and the Dolphins travel to Houston. Russell Wilson and the Seahawks head to the desert to meet up with the Cardinals. Only the Browns and Brandon Weeden play at home, and they get the Eagles and their stifling defense.

Seems like an easy guess who has a legit shot at getting a W this week, right? Check out the gallery to see if we're on the same page.
