Teams playing home games away from home and young quarterbacks entering the record books; it’s been another fantastic week of football. Although we were lacking touchdowns during the afternoon games on Sunday, the action later that day and on Monday night ensured we weren’t left short-changed.
BYE WEEK RULES - With some teams in a bye-week, the quarterbacks who don’t play shall be frozen in place. That may work for their benefit and restrict others, but those displaced will just have to up their game.
As always, we’ll state the components that influence whether a player will rise or fall in the rankings. Influential factors accounted for are QB passer rating (QBPR), touchdowns (TD), interceptions (INT) and yardage (YD). The reputation anyone may hold is no longer important.
32. Davis Mills (Houston Texans) - NON-MOVER
31. Baker Mayfield (Carolina Panthers) - NEW ENTRY
30. Jacoby Brissett (Cleveland Browns) - NON-MOVER
29. Zach Wilson (New York Jets) - DOWN 11
28. Marcus Mariota (Atlanta Falcons) - NON-MOVER
27. Russell Wilson (Denver Broncos) - UP 2
26. Jared Goff (Detroit Lions) - NON-MOVER
25. Kenny Pickett (Pittsburgh Steelers) - UP 2
24. Mac Jones (New England Patriots) - UP 1
23. Taylor Heinicke (Washington Commanders) - NON-MOVER
22. Justin Fields (Chicago Bears) - DOWN 2
21. Andy Dalton (New Orleans Saints) - UP 3
20. Matt Ryan (Indianapolis Colts) - UP 1
19. Trevor Lawrence (Jacksonville Jaguars) - BYE-WEEK
18. Derek Carr (Las Vegas Raiders) - UP 4
17. Matthew Stafford (Los Angeles Rams) - INJURED (DOWN 1)
16. Kyler Murray (Arizona Cardinals) - INJURED (DOWN 3)
15. Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay Packers) - NON-MOVER
14. Lamar Jackson (Baltimore Ravens) - DOWN 5
13. Ryan Tannehill (Tennessee Titans) - UP 1
12. Tom Brady (Tampa Bay Buccaneers) - BYE-WEEK
11. Dak Prescott (Dallas Cowboys) - UP 6
10. Justin Herbert (Los Angeles Chargers) - UP 1
His side may have lost but Justin Herbert played his part, racking up 280 yards, two touchdowns and a QBPR of 113.2. He averaged 9.3 yards per attempt as the Chargers fell victim to the freight train that is the Kansas City Chiefs.
9. Daniel Jones (New York Giants) - DOWN 1
We’re not quite sure what happened this week with the Giants. Jones was able to rack up 341 passing yards and 50 rushing yards but threw two interceptions, had a QBPR of 74.2 and a completion rate of 61%. Let’s see if he can address this slide next week against the Cowboys.
8. Kirk Cousins (Minnesota Vikings) - DOWN 2
A week to forget for Kirk Cousins and the Vikings. They were dismantled by a dominant Cowboys side with Kirk being limited to just 105 yards from 12/23 completions. Not one to get the jewelry out for.
7. Geno Smith (Seattle Seahawks) - BYE-WEEK
6. Jimmy Garoppolo (San Francisco 49ers) - UP 4
Jimmy G is having one hell of a season for San Francisco considering he seemingly had no future there over summer. Against the Cardinals last night Garoppolo was on fire, boasting a QBPR of 131.9, with four touchdowns, 68% completion rate and 228 yards to his name as the 49ers romped home with a 38-10 victory.
5. Tua Tagovailoa (Miami Dolphins) - BYE-WEEK
4. Jalen Hurts (Philadelphia Eagles) - DOWN 1
It feels harsh to move Jalen Hurts down this week but the Eagles’ offence just didn’t look in sync against the Colts as they scraped a 17-16 win in Indianapolis. Hurts’ numbers are actually pretty solid with two touchdowns (one passing, one rushing), 72% completion rate and 286 all purpose yards but the guys around him were just a step ahead.
3. Joe Burrow (Cincinnati Bengals) - UP 1
Joe Burrow was as cool as the Bengals’ uniforms this weekend as Cincinnati emerged 37-30 victors against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Burrow’s display had a bit of everything as he notched up 355 yards, 4 touchdowns, 2 INTs (one was an insane INT by T.J Watt) and a respectable QBPR of 104.1. As well as the win, Burrow passed a personal milestone as he became the joint third quickest QB to hit 10,000 passing yards, doing so in just 36 games. Only Justin Herbert (35) and Patrtick Mahomes (34) have done it quicker.
2. Josh Allen (Buffalo Bills) - NON-MOVER
Not an amazing performance considering the high standards of Josh Allen, but a win for his side in their home away from home game isn’t one to overlook. Over 6ft of snow forced the Bills to play out their 31-23 win against Cleveland in Detroit rather than Buffalo but Allen remained warm as he added 197 yards and a touchdown to his season tally.
1. Patrick Mahomes (Kansas City Chiefs) - NON-MOVER
Patrick Mahomes is something truly special. The only QB with over 3000 yards this season and with another stunning last minute comeback added to his resume following Sunday night’s win versus the Chargers. He led his team down the field in a composed manner before linking up with TE Travis Kelce for the big man’s third touchdown of the night. A respectable 329 yards, 9.7 per attempt, no interceptions and 120.8 QBPR. He continues to sit on top of the charts.
