Which Fresno State quarterback is the younger brother of the #1 pick of the 2002 draft? The Raiders made him the only quarterback from the 2014 draft class to start in week 1 of that season; he goes into Oakland's final 2015 game with 31 touchdown passes so far this year and needs just 207 more passing yards to hit 4,000.

Which USC quarterback made his first two NFL starts with the 1991 Los Angeles Raiders -- their last regular season game and their wild card game, both losses to Kansas City? He started seven games for the 1992 Raiders (and took LSD after many of those) before his drug addiction cut short his career.

Click to Reveal Answer
Todd Marinovich

(Either of two answers is acceptable.) In addition to the QB from question 11, two other quarterbacks started playoff games for the Los Angeles Raiders in the early 1990s. Both of them had been on Super Bowl champion NFC East teams prior to joining the Raiders: One had lost his starting job the year his team won it all, while the other made his championship run for a team whose starting QB suffered a season-ending broken foot. Name either of those quarterbacks.
