Washington plays Philadelphia on Sunday, giving Carson Wentz the chance to potentially join the fraternity of quarterbacks who have won games against the teams that drafted them. What retired quarterback is the all-time leader in this category, starting and winning 12 games against the franchise that originally picked him in the draft?
Sonny Jurgensen. Philadelphia drafted Jurgensen in the fourth round in 1957, and he played 7 years there, most notably leading the league in passing yards and touchdowns in 1961. After a trade to Washington in 1964, he went 12-3-2 as a starter against his original team (he also came off the bench to rally Washington to a win at Veterans Stadium in 1974). Other notable quarterbacks in this vein: John Elway went 6-1 against the Colts, and both Steve Young and Vinny Testaverde won 4 starts against the Bucs.
