Jameis Winston is in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The quarterback had his jersey enshrined after a five-touchdown game against the Philadelphia Eagles, Rick Stroud notes. Winston completed 19 of 29 passes for 246, five touchdowns and no interceptions in a blowout 45-17 win in Philadelphia.

That's pretty impressive for a rookie quarterback. So impressive that only one other rookie quarterback has managed to throw five touchdowns in one game since 1960: Matthew Stafford in 2009.

Here's to hoping his jersey won't be the only thing to end up in the Hall of Fame. We may have to wait 20 years or so for him to be inducted, though.
