32. Davis Mills

The rookie had a commendable first career start, but his second career start was awful. Davis Mills threw for 87 yards and four interceptions.

31. Justin Fields

After a disaster first career start for Justin Fields, he played a little better in his second career start. Fields still has a long way to go, but at least he is trending upward.

30. Ben Roethlisberger

The 2021 season for Ben Roethlisberger has been hard to watch. While he flashes the greatness we are so used to seeing, Roethlisberger regularly looks like he played one season too many.

29. Jacoby Brissett

What an ugly game it was from Miami Dolphins quarterback Jacoby Brissett. His final stats actually did not look too bad, but trust me, he was really bad. He consistently did not see wide-open receivers or throw with anticipation of receivers breaking open. It was hard to watch.

28. Jimmy Garoppolo

Jimmy Garoppolo could even be lower after another injury forced him out of the game. That allowed Trey Lance to take over. This could be the last time we ever see Garoppolo on here, as Lance could run away with the job next week if he starts.

27. Trevor Lawrence

Lawrence finally had some flashes on Thursday Night Football, but he’s still not playing No. 1 overall pick football. Lawrence is not the best rookie quarterback so far this season, and he will need to keep progressing.

26. Jameis Winston

It feels like forever ago that Jameis Winston was No. 1 after Week 1. Good times but not good football play since for Winston. Winston couldn’t lead his team to a win over the New York Giants.

25. Ryan Tannehill

Ryan Tannehill was a pleasant surprise last season for the Tennessee Titans. However, this year he is not very good, and the Titans aren’t a good football team because of it.

24. Zach Wilson

The 2021 No. 2 overall pick finally won his first career game on Sunday. Wilson flashed his talent on some late throws, and Jets fans should feel good about his progress in that game.

23. Teddy Bridgewater

Teddy Bridgewater has been a fun surprise on this list, but on Sunday, he came spiraling down after an injury. Drew Lock and he were in a quarterback battle, so hopefully, Bridgewater can get back healthy and take back over.

22. Carson Wentz

After somehow spraining both of his ankles on the same play, Wentz looked a little healthier on Sunday against the Dolphins. He was in command at the end game and secured his team their first win of the season.

21. Matt Ryan

Matt Ryan has been horrible this season, but he finally had a good game on Sunday. Ryan did not get a win, but he did throw for three scores and no interceptions.

20. Jalen Hurts

Jalen Hurts’ rating is being impacted by his play and his head coach’s horrible play calling. If Hurts had a run game, he would be better, but the Eagles are trying to make him win games with his arm, and that just isn’t going to happen.

19. Daniel Jones

Daniel Jones has quietly been having a really good fantasy football season for the quarterback position. He hasn’t been able to make that translate to wins, but he did lead the Giants to their first win of the season on Sunday.

18. Taylor Heinicke

Taylor Heinicke had one of his best games as a starter on Sunday. He threw for 290 yards and three scores and got his Washington Football team another win.

17. Jared Goff

Jared Goff’s Detroit Lions kind of stink, but he is a bright spot for sure. Goff has been playing well all year and will be the reason they are competitive in games all season.
