Doug Williams began the 1987 season as a backup but took over in the opening game of the season after an injury to starter Jay Schroeder. He would go on to lead Washington to a Super Bowl victory as well as becoming the Super Bowl MVP and setting a number of passing records in the game.

Russell Wilson led the Seattle Seahawks to a Super Bowl victory in the 2013 to 2014 season, the first championship win for the team. Wilson posted a 123.1 passer rating with two touchdowns and no interceptions.
