    Theres never been quite the sort of clean, composed rookie quarterbacking that Carson Wentz of the Philadelphia Eagles and Dak Prescott of the Dallas Cowboys are producing week after week after week.Wentz, drafted No. 2 overall out of North Dakota State, is the first rookie QB since 1970 to open a season 3-0 with zero interceptions. His 102 passes without a pick are an NFL record for a first-year player.Second on that list? Prescott, a fourth-round pick from Mississippi State, with 99 so far.Everybody keeps waiting for that rookie mistake and its not happening, Philadelphia safety Malcolm Jenkins said. What hes doing is special and its a testament to his preparation and demeanor.He was speaking about his teammate, Wentz, after a 23-for-31 performance that included 301 yards passing and a pair of TDs during a 34-3 victory over Pittsburgh on Sunday. But Jenkins words also would apply to Prescott, who went 19 of 24 for 248 yards and a touchdown toss to Dez Bryant as Dallas defeated Chicago 31-17 to improve to 2-1 without the injured Tony Romo.Wasnt all that long ago that folks figured there was no way a guy could make the jump straight from Saturdays to Sundays at the most important position in pro football. The 2012 rookie QB class of Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson went a long way toward changing that thinking.Now Wentz and Prescott are making things look easy.Maybe the Rams should think about letting No. 1 overall draft pick Jared Goff take a snap or two?In case you missed it, here are the other top topics after the NFL seasons third Sunday:`I DONT REMEMBER: Eventful an afternoon as Odell Beckham Jr. had -- he lost a fight with a kicking net , taking a shot to the face from the inanimate object after walloping it with his helmet; he appeared to shed tears on the sideline; he got picked up off his feet in the end zone by nemesis Josh Norman; he got a pregame warning about his behavior from an official; his Giants lost to the Redskins 29-27 -- he apparently will not be looking back, fondly or otherwise. Thats because OBJ replied, I dont remember, over and over and over again in response to reporters questions afterward.DO-IT-ALL: Clevelands Terrelle Pryor played QB at Ohio State, tried to stick to that position in the NFL, then shifted to receiver. He had a hand in a bit of everything in a 30-24 overtime loss to Miami, becoming the first player since Frank Gifford 57 years ago with at least 120 yards receiving, 30 passing and 20 rushing in a game. Oh, yeah, and he was in at safety on the final play of the first half, too. Dynamic athlete, Dolphins defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh said.FITZ-TRAGIC: No magic from Ryan Fitzpatrick this time. He threw six -- yes, thats right, 6! -- interceptions in the Jets 24-3 loss at the Kansas City Chiefs. Somehow, though, that is not a league record. Jim Hardy was picked off eight times in a 1950 game. Perhaps Fitzpatrick (and the Jets fans) can take heart from this: In his next game, Hardy threw for six TDs.ANTHEM DEMONSTRATIONS: Players from more than a dozen NFL teams joined in some form of silent demonstration during the national anthem before games, following the lead of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Among them were four Washington Redskins -- receivers DeSean Jackson and Rashad Ross, cornerback Greg Toler and tight end Niles Paul -- who stood a couple of steps behind the rest of the team on the sideline and held up their right fists.---Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at NFL website: and AP NFL Twitter feed: Scarpe Jordan Scontate . -- Matt Ryan needed one of the best games of his career to lead the Falcons and their depleted offence out of their three-game losing streak last week. Scarpe Jordan Uomo Scontate . -- Its been a long road back for Sean Bergenheim. .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. Scarpe Jordan a Poco Prezzo .S. Open champion Justin Rose birdied the first hole with a blind shot he hit to a foot of the pin, and he stayed in front Tuesday until he completed a 4-under 67 for a two-shot lead over Jason Dufner in PGA Grand Slam of Golf. Air Jordan Scarpe Italia . R.J. Umberger scored twice to lead the Blue Jackets to a franchise-record for consecutive wins with a 5-3 victory Tuesday night over the Los Angeles Kings. Meet Will Mackey, a freshman South Carolina student that loves his Gamecocks.Why are we talking about Mackey? In South Carolinas upset win over the Tennessee Volunteers, Mackey knew, as a fan, he had to join his fellow students in rushing the field for this incredible victory. There was only one problem -- the student section did not rush the field.In Mackeys epic video, we see no fans behind him. However, we do get to see his run-in with backup quarterback?Perry Orth, who is as excited as he is.Naturally, his enthusiastic video went viral. It received over 4,000 retweets and over 8,000 likes on Twitter. According to Campus Rush, Gamecock players Elliott Fry, Deebo Samuel and Terry Googer reached out to Mackey commending him for the video.For them to care this much about some student who made a dumb decision says a lot about the people on our football team, Mackey told Campus Rush. Theyve mmade my life just by saying hey.ddddddddddddBecause of his spontaneous decision, Mackey received a ban for the remainder of home games this season. But, it appears, that was merely a challenge for Mackey. The Missouri game came around, and where was Mackey??In the stadium, outfitted in a mustache and sunglasses, of course.I grew up loving South Carolina and I never thought Id be a big name at South Carolina. This has been beyond my best dream, Mackey told Campus Rush.With one more home game on the schedule against Western Carolina, we have to assume Mackey is scheming up his next disguise. Whether he shaves his head, dyes his hair or comes up with some elaborate plan, we can only hope we get a photo or video half as entertaining as these two.-- Courtney Schellin ' ' '
