Top 15 NFL QBs after week 3, Tua Tagovailoa lands in the top 10?
By Juan Vasquez
Honorable mentions: Derek Carr, Joe Burrow, and Geno Smith.
#15 – Matthew Stafford – Los Angeles Rams:
It’s been a very tough season for the Rams, losing OBJ and Robert Woods at WR has really hurt their offense, and Matthew Stafford’s elbow injury has really affected his performance.
On top of that, the Rams’ offensive line has regressed badly with the new players in place, and Stafford is beginning to see ghosts in the pocket. So far this season Stafford has only thrown 4 touchdowns and accumulated 5 INTs already.
#14 – Marcus Mariota – Atlanta Falcons:
Marcus Mariota has been playing very well as a game manager, he only has 3 TDs for the season. But he is helping the Falcons maintain a respectable offense that can move down the field, although they don’t score very efficiently.
All in all, it’s surprising to see Mariota outplaying so many starters, after all, many saw Mariota as a placeholder QB while the Falcons tank for a better draft pick.
#13 – Jacoby Brissett – Cleveland Browns:
Somehow someway, Jacoby Brissett has not been playing horrible football. The Browns are not good in the passing game, but they are not bad either.
Brissett has made the key throws and has let one of the best running games in the NFL do the majority of the dirty work for him, 4 touchdowns and not messing up as a game manager lands Jacoby Brissett in this spot.
