One is 24; the other 29.
One hails from a major college and is known as calm and cool in the pocket, wise beyond his years; the other an underdog free agent known as one of the most creative ad-libbers in football.
One has led his team to a 4-1 record entering Sunday's game at Cowboys Stadium; the other has led his to 3-2.
Neither has won a playoff game.
