AJ McCarron Becomes 1st Alabama Quarterback To Win NFL Game As Starter Since 1987

On November 15, 1987, Alabama alumnus Jeff Rutledge led the New York Giants to a 20-17 victory over the division rival Philadelphia Eagles. Since that game, no former Crimson Tide quarterback had won an NFL game as starter...until today. AJ McCarron led the Cincinnati Bengals to a 24-14 victory over the San Francisco 49ers, completing 15-of-21 passes for 192 yards and a touchdown.

McCarron, filling in for the injured Andy Dalton, did what Brodie Croyle and Greg McElroy could not in recent years. Alabama fans have to be happy of this incredibly surprising stat.
