There have been eight sets of quarterbacks taken with the first two picks in an NFL draft class, as Jared Goff and Carson Wentz were in 2016. Sunday will mark only the seventh time those QBs have started against each other. The No. 1 pick is 4-2. Here’s a look at the QBs drafted 1-2 in NFL history:

  1. Jared Goff, L.A. Rams
  2. Carson Wentz, Eagles

Goff was 0-7 as a rookie, but is 9-3 this season. Wentz went 7-9 in 2016. He’s 10-2 this year and is a candidate for league MVP … Wentz, from North Dakota State, was the first quarterback selected with a top-two pick from an FCS/Division I-AA program since Louisiana Tech’s Terry Bradshaw in 1970.
