One of the most popular narratives in the first half of the NFL season has been the play of the rookie quarterbacks. Here’s a look at how the NFL’s rookie quarterbacks are performing as the season approaches its midpoint.
The running back told his coach to “run the ball” as he returned to the field following an interception, according to a report. Bradshaw was also frustrated with Victor Cruz because he though the receiver missed a block, the report said.
Victor Cruz had seven catches for 131 yards, including a 77-yard TD on a post that won the game with 1:13 left. And midway through the third quarter, Joseph jarred the ball free from RB Alfred Morris at the Giants’ 39 with the score tied at 13.
Expect the big plays and salsa dancing to continue. Cruz has proven he’s going to be a star player in this league for a long time.

A lot is expected of a top-10 draft pick, no matter their position. See who will do what once the season kicks off.
In the past, it wouldn’t take much to get a battle started. An upstart player would play impressively in training camp while a veteran would report out of shape.Today’s players condition all year long and get familiar with the team’s plays and gameplan at mini-camp and OTAs.
