Fangio defenses against rookie quarterbacks - historical review

Vic Fangio got his first defensive coordinator job in the NFL in 1995. His defenses have faced rookie (16 starts or fewer) quarterbacks 77 times. Read on to see how his defenses have fared.

I’ve included 2019 and 2020 because Fangio, even as the head coach, still has a great deal of influence on the defense.

Sorting by passer rating here are the top 20.
