NC State quarterbacks are having quite the week. First, Ryan Finley led the Pack in a huge win over Louisville on Thursday, and now the former signal-callers are following suit.
Former Wolfpack quartberbacks Philip Rivers, Russel Wilson, and Jacoby Brissett all came out with wins on Sunday.
Philip Rivers had the best overall performance, putting up 258 yards and 3 TDs. It was also the Chargers first win of the season. Here are the game highlights.
Russel Wilson led the Seahawks to their 3rd win, going 24/37 for 198 yards and a TD. He has been a steady producer, but the dink and dunk nature of Seattle’s offense (and their aging receivers) doesn’t do his stat line many favors in the yardage category. Here are the highlights.
Lastly, you have Jacoby Brissett. What can you say about this guy. He was traded from the Patriots to the Colts and was thrust into the fire. With Andrew Luck on the shelf, the reigns were handed over to Brissett and man has he proven a lot of people wrong. The most recent Wolfpack grad is making his case to be full-time starter in the NFL. He put up another big game en route to a Colts OT win, throwing for 314 yards and running for a touchdown. While the Colts are only 2-3, Brissett is really turning some heads.
#Colts Jacoby Brissett acquisition turning out beautifully. Making them competitive and when Luck returns, he’ll be a tradable commodity.

A couple more performances like this and Brissett may find himself traded again, this time to a team ready to make them their full-time starting QB. However, with Luck out at least another month, Jacoby will continue to see starts for the Colts. Check out the game highlights.
This would have been the first opportunity for the 4 headed monster from QBU to all come away with wins in a single week, however, Mike Glennon has been benched in favor of Rookie QB Mitch Trubisky. But hey, 3-0 is still pretty amazing.
