Quarterback Ranked: Top 10 NFL Quarterbacks in 2021

Quarterbacks are offensive platoon players who usually line up right behind the offensive line. A powerful offensive platoon is built on the presence of a competent quarterback. In this article, we take a look at the top 10 NFL quarterbacks in 2021.

Week to week, snap to snap, I give Brady the tiny advantage as the best quarterback in football during the first half of the season. At the top, it’s a toss-up, but Brady’s availability and consistency are superior to the field.

Last year, he mentioned that the Bucs’ offensive troubles will be solved during their bye week in 2020, so I’m interested to see how this bunch looks after a week off.



Lamar Jackson

Lamar’s performance against Minnesota represented his season in miniature: a few misses during an abysmal start, a flurry of deep and midrange passes against zone defense, the best running instincts in the league, and a comeback victory in which he played the hero.

While passing for over 1,500 yards more than a year ago, he’s on course to break his own QB running yards record. He’s already made four fourth-quarter comebacks in his career.
