#32) Trey Lance – San Francisco 49ers:
It’s obvious now why the 49ers wanted to keep Jimmy Garoppolo around, Trey Lance doesn’t look like an NFL starter out there. Yes, he had to play in a monsoon but after appearing in an NFC Championship game in January there is no excuse why the 49ers suddenly look like a bottom-feeder team with Lance at the helm.
Especially vs the Chicago Bears, who are a heavy contender… for the #1 overall pick.
#31) Joe Burrow – Cincinnati Bengals:
Joe Burrow isn’t dead last strictly because of how putrid Trey Lance’s performance was, but he wasn’t far off. Joe Burrow threw 4 INTs and had 2 more picks which were taken away, Jamarr Chase, Joe Mixon, and the other Bengals were playing hard.
But Joe Burrow single-handedly lost the Bengals this game, every time there was any momentum coming up Burrow threw an interception. If Burrow was at the very least mediocre, the Bengals would’ve walked Pittsburgh like a dog.
#30) Dak Prescott – Dallas Cowboys:
It wasn’t too long ago Dak Prescott was going in the media with his chest out to tell everyone the Cowboys feel “even better this year” after losing some key pieces in the off-season. The Bucs had lost some pieces due to injuries too, so I thought this matchup was pretty even.
Prescott’s statement backfired pretty hard as he went on to complete less than 50% of his passes, scored a whooping zero touchdowns, and had a passer rating of 47.2. Yikes.
Prescott suffered a thumb injury which prevented him from fighting back, which is why we bumped him up from 32 to 30.
