J.T. Barrett, Jalen Ramsey, Dak Prescott, Carson Wentz, Teddy Bridgewater, Russell Wilson and Derek Carr all started in the same season, and now the Eagles are the only team to start them all.
The Packers’ Aaron Rodgers, Texans’ Deshaun Watson and Panthers’ Cam Newton are all expected to miss time with injuries.
It’s not easy for a team to get off to a good start with two quarterbacks on the roster.
But as a group, they have played at a high level in the first three games, so they have a chance to get back on track.

(AP Photo/Ben Margot) More: Eagles head coach Doug Pederson (3-0) and his staff have been impressed with the way Bradford has been playing in his first two starts.
He has completed 70 percent of his passes for 438 yards and three touchdowns, including a 59-yard touchdown to Jared Cook in the third quarter of Sunday’s 27-13 victory over the Lions.
Bradford is now 9-for-12 in the fourth quarter or overtime.
Bradford has completed 63.6 percent of the passes for 1,066 yards and four touchdowns, with three interceptions and a fumble return for a touchdown.
Bradford also has thrown for 300 yards and two touchdowns, but he has only thrown for one interception.
“We’ve been really pleased with his effort and his work ethic, and I think it’s just going to continue to be that way,” Pederson said.
“He has a great opportunity to be able to play a full game, be the starting quarterback for the entire season, which is the most important thing.”
Green Bay has allowed the most points in the NFL with 27, but they have only allowed six touchdowns to the Packers, who are the second-worst team in the league in scoring (17.3 per game).
They have also allowed the fourth-most sacks in the NFC (19).
Green Bay is 1-1 on the road, and they’ll have to get on a roll against the Eagles if they want to have any hope of winning in Philadelphia.
Bradford played well enough to earn a win over the Cowboys last week and will get the opportunity to start this Sunday.
The Eagles are playing in a brutal division with the NFC East team coming off a win.
Dallas is 4-1 with a 10-1 record and was favored by seven points over the Packers.
Dallas lost in Week 6 to a very physical, physical Cowboys defense.
“You don’t want to go down there and play at home and be like, ‘Well, I feel like we did a lot better than we did against them,'” quarterback Dak Prescott said.
Prescott said his team did a good job of holding up and forcing turnovers, which helped them win the turnover battle.
“I think we kept the ball on the ground, and we were just able to make plays with our legs and our athleticism and make the right reads, and that’s what we needed to do,” Prescott said of his play.
“And obviously, we did some things on defense that allowed us to get that turnover.”
Wentz is also a favorite to start against the Packers as he is the only player on the Eagles’ roster who has played in the playoffs, which makes him a more experienced player.
Prescott has started all 16 games in his career, with eight wins and four losses.
The rookie quarterback has thrown at least three interceptions in four of his last six starts.
The other quarterback is Matt Barkley, who had a strong game in Week 5, but also has not played since Week 6.
Barkley is averaging 4.3 yards per attempt and has thrown two interceptions in his last two games.
Bradford was the starter in Week 3 but went down with an injured left knee in the second quarter.
He was placed on injured reserve with a torn labrum.
He will miss the next two weeks after suffering a torn right ACL in Week 2.
“Right now, it’s a little bit of a mystery to me,” Ped, who has had no quarterbacks to start the season, said of whether Bradford will start.
“It’s still a work in progress, and right now, we’re just trying to get him healthy.”
