This week opened with a future All-Pro defensive end beating a young quarterback with his own helmet. However, we should not overlook Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens stomping the Houston Texans and fellow MVP candidate, Deshaun Watson.

After this week, the MVP race as far as quarterbacks go is between Russell Wilson and Jackson. With both Seattle and Baltimore putting on great performances in recent weeks, Wilson and Jackson will command a lot of attention moving forward.

1. Russell Wilson BYE WEEK

Last week’s ranking: 1

The NFL’s frontrunner for the MVP has earned a week off. Wilson only has two games this season with a passer rating below 100 and is leading the league in this category. He’s also only thrown two interceptions and just knocked off the last undefeated team in the league.

2. Lamar Jackson 17/24 222 yards, four touchdowns, 86 rushing yards

Last week’s ranking: 12

Admittedly, I held off on the Jackson hype more than I should have. He’s led the Baltimore Ravens to dominant wins against New England, Seattle, and now Houston. After a slow start to the year, Baltimore looks like a legitimate Super Bowl contender.

3. Patrick Mahomes 19/32 182 yards, one touchdown, one interception, 59 rushing yards

Last week’s ranking: 3

The Kansas City Chiefs survived a close game against the Los Angeles Chargers in Mexico City. Mahomes and the offense only put up 24 points and struggled to move the ball against the Chargers. Kansas City’s defense came through in the end.

4. Tom Brady 26/47 216 yards

Last week’s ranking: 4

As expected, the New England Patriots continue to find ways to win games. Brady is still one of the league’s best quarterbacks, but he hasn’t been as dominant as in years past. With a win over the Philadelphia Eagles, the Patriots advanced to 9-1.

5. Drew Brees 28/35 228 yards, three touchdowns

Last week’s ranking: 6

After a surprising loss to the Atlanta Falcons last week, the New Orleans Saints and Brees made a statement against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Brees, Alvin Kamara, and Michael Thomas were all involved as New Orleans hung 34 points on the Buccaneers.

6. Aaron Rodgers BYE WEEK

Last week’s ranking: 5

While Rodgers’ numbers have jumped up and down this season, the Green Bay Packers have remained consistent. At 8-2, the Packers have one of the best records in the NFL and could challenge for the top seed in the NFC down the stretch.

7. Deshaun Watson 18/29 169 yards, one interception, one fumble lost

Last week’s ranking: 2

Sunday was Watson’s first loss by double-digits as an NFL quarterback. The rough day likely ends his MVP candidacy. Watson faced pressure throughout the game and sometimes held the ball too long. The Texans will face the Indianapolis Colts in a battle for the AFC South in Week 12.

8. Kirk Cousins 29/35 319 yards, three touchdowns, one fumble lost

Last week’s ranking: 7

After a slow start that saw the Minnesota Vikings trailing the Denver Broncos 20-0 at halftime, Cousins and Vikings caught fire. He completed 82.86% of his pass attempts and posted a 133.2 passer rating in Minnesota’s comeback win.

9. Dak Prescott 29/46 444 yards, three touchdowns

Last week’s ranking: 11

When Dallas’ running game failed the team, Prescott took over and led the Dallas Cowboys to a 35-27 win over the Detroit Lions. Prescott is averaging 322.1 passing yards per game this season, but his team is only 6-4.

10. Derek Carr 25/29 292 yards, one touchdown, one interception

Last week’s ranking: 8

While Carr only had four incompletions on Sunday, the one interception plus a Josh Jacobs fumble kept the Cincinnati Bengals in the game. Ultimately, the Oakland Raiders won 17-10 and advanced to 6-4. Their playoff hopes are alive and well.

11. Matt Ryan 21/31 311 yards, one touchdown

Last week’s ranking: 9

The Falcons have put together back to back wins against division opponents. While it’s too late to redeem their season, the Falcons are going down fighting. Ryan completed 67.74% of his pass attempts and posted a 111.1 passer rating in Week 11.

12. Kyler Murray 24/33 150 yards, two touchdowns, 67 rushing yards, one touchdown

Last week’s ranking: 13

The first overall pick in the 2019 draft fought the San Francisco 49ers to their limit on Sunday. While his numbers weren’t flashy, Murray capitalized on San Francisco’s mistakes and put together a clean game. In the end, the Arizona Cardinals just lacked the firepower to pull off the upset.

13. Carson Wentz 20/40 214 yards, one touchdown, one fumble lost

Last week’s ranking: 10

Philadelphia’s fourth-year quarterback is still a puzzling prospect. He flashes at times but hasn’t put together many notable all-around performances this season. Much like the Eagles as a team, Wentz has potential but is still playing average.

14. Ryan Tannehill BYE WEEK

Last week’s ranking: 14

The Tennessee Titans made the right move when they benched Marcus Mariota for Tannehill. The only question is, why wasn’t the move made sooner? In four starts, Tannehill is 3-1, is completing 70% of his pass attempts, and has a 107.5 passer rating.

15. Josh Allen 21/33 256 yards, three touchdowns, 56 rushing yards, one rushing touchdown

Last week’s ranking: 18

A week after losing to the Cleveland Browns, Allen and the Buffalo Bills put their foot down against the Miami Dolphins. Allen had his best game of 2019, completing 63.64% of his pass attempts and posting a 117.7 passer rating.

16. Jimmy Garoppolo 34/45 424 yards, four touchdowns, two interceptions

Last week’s ranking: 17

If not for the interceptions, the 49ers might’ve buried the Cardinals. Garoppolo has two four-touchdown games this season, and both are against Arizona. While he completed 75.56% of his pass attempts, Garoppolo is still just an average quarterback who will struggle down the stretch against better competition.

17. Jacoby Brissett 15/24 148, one touchdown, one interception, one rushing touchdown

Last week’s ranking: Unranked (DNP)

Indianapolis Colts fans were relieved to see Brissett take the field in Week 11 following a Brian Hoyer loss in Week 10. While his game was shaky, Brissett and the Colts glided to a comfortable win against the Jacksonville Jaguars thanks to the run game and defense.

18. Nick Foles 33/47 296 yards, two touchdowns, one interception

Last week’s ranking: 20

In his first game since breaking his clavicle in Week 1, Foles had a decent game. Unfortunately, the Jaguars were either unable or not willing to run the football. In the meantime, the Colts racked up 264 rushing yards and a 33-13 victory.

19. Sam Darnold 19/30 293 yards, four touchdowns, one interception

Last week’s ranking: 23

Darnold would have more confidence if he played the Washington Redskins every week. The struggling second-year quarterback dominated Washington, save for an interception. His 121.3 passer rating was a season-high.

20. Baker Mayfield 17/32 193 yards, two touchdowns

Last week’s ranking: 24

The Browns jumped on the Pittsburgh Steelers early, scoring through the air twice in the first half. Pittsburgh’s defense clamped down after that, but the Browns held onto their lead. Cleveland is undefeated against AFC North opponents.

21. Daniel Jones BYE WEEK

Last week’s ranking: 21

The New York Giants knew their season was over from the first game, but Jones has flashed some potential. His consistency is still a problem, and he fumbles at a ridiculous rate, but those are things he can outgrow. At least, that’s what the Giants hope.

22. Ryan Fitzpatrick 32/45 323 yards

Last week’s ranking: 25

The journeyman had a decent game against the Bills. He completed 71.11% of his pass attempts and posted a 91.3 passer rating. Unfortunately for Miami, the Bills brought consistent pressure, and Allen was hot all afternoon. Buffalo simply outmatches Miami.

23. Jameis Winston 30/51 313 yards, two touchdowns, four interceptions

Last week’s ranking: 16

The Buccaneers have their own quarterback conundrum. Winston leads the NFL with 18 interceptions. He’s in the middle of his worst season as a pro and the final year of his rookie contract. What will Tampa Bay do this offseason?

24. Philip Rivers 28/52 353 yards, one touchdown, four interceptions

Last week’s ranking: 19

On Monday night, Rivers joined the mounting four-interceptions club for Week 11. The Chargers had a legitimate chance at upsetting the Chiefs, but Rivers’ carelessness with the ball cost Los Angeles in the end.

25. Jeff Driskel 15/26 209 yards, two touchdowns, 51 rushing yards, one rushing touchdown

Last week’s ranking: 30

The third-year quarterback does deserve some credit for keeping the Lions within one score of the Cowboys. All things considered, he had a quality game. With Matthew Stafford still mending, we could see Driskel again in Week 12 against Washington.

26. Jared Goff 11/18 173 yards, one interception

Last week’s ranking: 22

At one point, Goff looked like a stable, perennial Pro Bowler. However, Goff has reverted to some of his bad habits from his rookie season. The Los Angeles Rams may be 6-4, but it feels like the team is going backward.

27. Kyle Allen 31/50 325 yards, four interceptions

Last week’s ranking: 15

The second-year quarterback’s collapse hasn’t been pretty. After starting his career 5-0 as a starter, the Panthers have lost three of their last four games. Allen has thrown nine interceptions during that time. Now, the Panthers have even more quarterback questions.

28. Brandon Allen 17/39 240 yards, one touchdown, one interception

Last week’s ranking: 28

The Broncos can’t catch a break. After holding a 20-0 lead at halftime, the Broncos slowly gave ground to the Vikings. Denver never found the end zone in the second half, and the Vikings secured a comeback victory. Allen posted a 61.9 passer rating.

29. Dwayne Haskins 19/35 214 yards, two touchdowns, one interception

Last week’s ranking: 31

The more Haskins plays this season, the more apparent it becomes that Washington should have redshirted him this year. He did throw two touchdowns in the fourth quarter, but this whole season has been an unnecessarily difficult voyage for the rookie.

30. Mitchell Trubisky 24/43 190 yards, one touchdown, one interception

Last week’s ranking: 26

While the interception wasn’t his fault, Trubisky still had another abysmal game. The former second overall pick cannot energize his offense, and Khalil Mack’s defensive struggles have only dug the Chicago Bears an even deeper hole.

31. Ryan Finley 13/31 115 yards, one interception, 47 rushing yards, one fumble lost

Last week’s ranking: 29

Thanks to a surprisingly active running game, the Bengals were within one score of the Raiders for the entire game. Cincinnati probably would’ve won if Finley didn’t play so poorly. The rookie completed 41.94% of his pass attempts and posted a 39.0 passer rating.

32. Mason Rudolph 23/44 221 yards, one touchdown, four interceptions

Last week’s ranking: 27

While Rudolph might have very few weapons around him, he can at least not double his interception total in one afternoon. That’s a reasonable request. The Steelers fell to 5-5 and lost All-Pro center Maurkice Pouncey to a three-game suspension.

Played sparingly

Robert Griffin III 2/2 15 yards

Last week’s ranking: Played sparingly

With a 41-7 blowout victory secured, Griffin relieved Jackson late in Week 11. The Ravens are legitimate title contenders and have beaten three of the best teams in the league this year. Baltimore needs to keep Jackson healthy at all costs.

Chase Daniel 1/4 nine yards

Last week’s ranking: Unranked (DNP)

Trubisky exited Chicago’s Week 11 matchup late in the game with a hip injury. However, some fans are wondering if he should remain on the sideline moving forward. There’s not much difference between starting Trubisky or Daniel at this point.
