8 p.m.

From Kyler Murray magic to Alex Smith’s latest milestone, it was quite the day for quarterbacks selected first in the NFL draft.

Cam Newton will be the eighth No. 1 pick QB to play Sunday when he starts for the New England Patriots. Seven played in the afternoon, including the past three: Cincinnati’s Joe Burrow, Murray and Cleveland’s Baker Mayfield.

With Newton’s performance still outstanding, here’s a look at how they fared:

JOE BURROW (2020)

Burrow was 21 of 40 for 213 yards passing and a touchdown in the Bengals’ 36-10 loss to the NFL’s last unbeaten team, the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was overshadowed by 2004 No. 11 pick Ben Roethlisberger, who threw for 333 yards and four TDs despite missing practice during the week because of COVID-19 protocols.
