The 33rd Team’s weekly QB rankings are a snapshot of where the league’s 32 current starters are right now, taking into account the player’s recent production, his supporting cast, his health, and an evaluation by our scouting department, led by former NFL team executive T.J. McCreight and assisted by scouts Justin Casey, Kevin Cohn and Evan Pritt.

>> Previous QB Rankings: Week 4Week 5 | Week 6

1. Josh Allen, Bills 

Record: 5-1 | QB Rating: 109.1 | Prev. Rank: 1

Next Three Games: BYE, vs. Green Bay, at N.Y. Jets

Comment: He went head-to-head with Mahomes and finished with 329 yards passing and three TDs. Allen showed off his run skills as well and stayed in the top spot.

2. Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs

Record: 4-2 | QB Rating: 106.1 | Prev. Rank: 2

Next Three Games: at San Francisco, BYE, vs. Tennessee

Comment: Mahomes lands just behind Allen after throwing two picks and falling to the Bills. These two players will probably go back and forth all season.

3. Jalen Hurts, Eagles

Record: 6-0 | QB Rating: 98.4 | Prev. Rank: 3

Next Three Games: BYE, vs. Pittsburgh, at Houston

Comment: Hurts kept his team undefeated throwing two TDs and had another efficient day. He is directing the Eagles’ offense at a high-level and doing exactly what they need him to do.

 

4. Joe Burrow, Bengals

Record: 3-3 | QB Rating: 95.6 | Prev. Rank: 7

Next Three Games: vs. Atlanta, at Cleveland, vs. Carolina

Comment: Burrow had a big day against the Saints with a 126 passer rating, three TDs and no picks. He looked toward Ja’Marr Chase, and they were totally in sync together in the second half.

 

5. Lamar Jackson, Ravens

Record: 3-3 | QB Rating: 93.2 | Prev. Rank: 4

Next Three Games: vs. Cleveland, at Tampa Bay, at New Orleans

Comment: Jackson struggled to consistently connect vs. the Giants and again — other than tight end Mark Andrews — struggled to get others involved in the passing game.

6. Justin Herbert, Chargers

Record: 4-2 | QB Rating: 93.1 | Prev. Rank: 6

Next Three Games: vs. Seattle, BYE, at Atlanta

Comment: The Chargers won the game, but he did not have a great performance.

7. Kirk Cousins, Vikings

Record: 5-1 | QB Rating: 88.7 | Prev. Rank: 8

Next Three Games: BYE, vs. Arizona, at Washington

Comment: Cousins moved his team to 5-1 and was an efficient 20 of 30 with two TDs and no picks. He’s not having a huge year with regard to his numbers, but he is winning football games.

 

8. Tua Tagovailoa, Dolphins

Record: 3-0 | QB Rating: 109.9 | Prev. Rank: NR

Next Three Games: vs. Pittsburgh, at Chicago, at Detroit

Comment: All eyes will be on Tagovailoa returning from his serious concussion. If he is right, he should have a huge game against the Steelers’ banged-up defense.

9. Tom Brady, Buccaneers

Record: 3-3 | QB Rating: 95.1 | Prev. Rank: 5

Next Three Games: at Carolina, vs. Baltimore, vs. L.A. Rams

Comment: He ran into a desperate Steelers team and did not do enough to finish them off on the road. Brady only averaged 6.1 yards per completion.

10. Matthew Stafford, Rams

Record: 3-3 | QB Rating: 84.6 | Prev. Rank: 10

Next Three Games: BYE, vs. San Francisco, at Tampa Bay

Comment: He did enough to beat the Panthers and averaged 7.7 yards per throw.

 

11. Aaron Rodgers, Packers

Record: 3-3 | QB Rating: 94.2 | Prev. Rank: 9

Next Three Games: at Washington, at Buffalo, at Detroit

Comment: Rodgers and the Packers’ offense only put up 10 points on the board, and he was sacked four times. The Packers need to hit a stride, and it starts with Rodgers.

12. Dak Prescott, Cowboys

Record: 0-1 | QB Rating: 47.2 | Prev Rank: NR

Next Three Games: vs. Chicago, vs. Detroit, BYE

Comment: Cooper Rush did a nice job keeping the team in contention, but to compete with the Eagles, they need Dak playing as he did in 2021.

13. Jared Goff, Lions

Record: 1-4 | QB Rating: 92.9 | Prev. Rank: 11

Next Three Games: at Dallas, vs. Miami, vs. Green Bay

Comment: Goff and the Lions had the week off.

14. Jimmy Garoppolo, 49ers

Record: 2-2 | QB Rating: 94.8 | Prev. Rank: 12

Next Three Games: vs. Kansas City, at L.A. Rams, BYE

Comment: Garoppolo threw two picks and the 49ers only scored 14 points in their loss to the Falcons.

15. Geno Smith, Seahawks

Record: 3-3 | QB Rating: 108.1 | Prev. Rank: 13

Next Three Games: at L.A. Chargers, vs. N.Y. Giants, at Arizona

Comment: Smith was sacked five times against the Cardinals but did not throw an interception and did enough to win the game.

16. Derek Carr, Raiders

Record: 1-4 | QB Rating: 87.7 | Prev. Rank: 14

Next Three Games: vs. Houston, at New Orleans, at Jacksonville

Comment: Carr and the Raiders had the week off.

 

17. Daniel Jones, Giants

Record: 5-1 | QB Rating: 90.2 | Prev. Rank: 20

Next Three Games: at Jacksonville, at Seattle, BYE

Comment: Jones moved his Giants to a remarkable 5-1 record with two TDs and no picks against the Ravens. Has protected the football, and his team must be taken seriously.

 

18. Matt Ryan, Colts

Record: 3-2-1 | QB Rating: 86.2 | Prev. Rank: 22

Next Three Games: at Tennessee, vs. Washington, at New England

Comment: The aging Ryan threw the football 58 times against the Jags and had three TDs and no picks. This is a big win for the Colts to keep themselves above .500.

19. Trevor Lawrence, Jaguars

Record: 2-4 | QB Rating: 91.9 | Prev. Rank: 16

Next Three Games: vs. N.Y. Giants, vs. Denver, vs. Las Vegas

Comment: Lawrence only missed on two passes, going 20 of 22, but only had 165 yards and was sacked four times against the Colts.

20. Kyler Murray, Cardinals

Record: 2-4 | QB Rating: 81.8 | Prev. Rank: 17

Next Three Games: vs. New Orleans, at Minnesota, vs. Seattle

Comment: Murray led the team in rushing, but it was not enough to beat Seattle. He needs his number-one wide receiver, DeAndre Hopkins, back in the lineup, which might happen against the Saints on Thursday night.

21. Ryan Tannehill, Titans 

Record: 3-2 | QB Rating: 94.2 | Prev. Rank: 18

Next Three Games: vs. Indianapolis, at Houston, at Kansas City

Comment: Tannehill and the Titans had the week off.

Next Three Games: at Denver, vs. New England, vs. Buffalo

23. Jacoby Brissett, Browns

Record: 2-4 | QB Rating: 78.7 | Prev. Rank: 19

Next Three Games: at Baltimore, vs. Cincinnati, BYE

24. Bailey Zappe, Patriots

Record: 2-0 | QB Rating: 111.4 | Prev. Rank: 28

Next Three Games: vs. Chicago, at N.Y. Jets, vs. Indianapolis

Comment: Zappe led the Patriots to a win in Cleveland. He protected the football and threw for 309 yards, two TDs and no picks.

25. Russell Wilson, Broncos

Record: 2-4 | QB Rating: 82.8 | Prev. Rank: 23

Next Three Games: vs. N.Y. Jets, at Jacksonville, BYE

Comment: Another week, another disappointing performance after a close against the Chargers. Wilson also injured his hamstring on Monday night, although it’s unclear how serious the injury is.

 

26. Marcus Mariota, Falcons

Record: 3-3 | QB Rating: 87.7 | Prev. Rank: 30

Next Three Games: at Cincinnati, vs. Carolina, vs. L.A. Chargers

27. Andy Dalton, Saints

Record: 1-2 | QB Rating: 90.6 | Prev. Rank: 26

Next Three Games: at Arizona, vs. Las Vegas, vs. Baltimore

Comment: Dalton could not beat his old team and did not quite do enough to win in a close game as he only threw for 162 yards.

28. Davis Mills, Texans

Record: 1-3-1 | QB Rating: 80.6 | Prev. Rank: 27

Next Three Games: at Las Vegas, vs. Tennessee, vs. Philadelphia

29. Justin Fields, Bears

Record: 2-4 | QB Rating: 72.7 | Prev. Rank: 29

Next Three Games: at New England, at Dallas, vs. Miami

Comment: Fields used his legs for some success, but when he was forced to throw the ball to win the game, he came up short.

30. Kenny Pickett/Mitch Trubisky, Steelers

Record: 2-4 | QB Rating: 75.0 | Prev. Rank: 31

Next Three Games: at Miami, at Philadelphia, BYE

Comment: The two QBs were 20 of 30 for 211 yards, two TDs and no picks. They played well enough to beat Brady and the Bucs.

31. Taylor Heinicke, Commanders

Record: 0-0 | QB Rating: N/A | Prev. Rank: NR

Next Three Games: vs. Green Bay, at Indianapolis, vs. Minnesota

Comment: With Carson Wentz injured, Heinicke steps back into the starting position. Last season, he started 15 games for Washington, completing 65% of his passes for 3,419 yards, 20 TDs and 15 INTs, for a QB rating of 85.9.
