Drew Brees and Nick Foles both played for Westlake High School in Austin, Texas, and they’ll start against each other on Sunday. They also did this following the 2013 season. Since the merger in 1970, what is the only other pair of quarterbacks who graduated from the same high school who started against each other in a playoff game? It happened in 1974. Hint: These quarterbacks wore the same jersey number, and the leading rushers on those teams also wore the same jersey number.
Terry Bradshaw (Steelers) and Joe Ferguson (Bills). Both graduated from Woodlawn High in Shreveport, Louisiana. Both ran offenses that year featuring standout running backs – O.J. Simpson for Buffalo and Franco Harris for Pittsburgh (both wore #32). Carson Palmer and Mark Sanchez met in the 2009 playoffs, and both attended Santa Margarita Catholic in California, but Sanchez transferred after his sophomore year.
