We are down to the final eight teams left in the NFL playoffs, and today, we are going to rank all eight quarterbacks that are left in these playoffs. These rankings are based on how the players are playing presently and how they played this season.
Mayfield may come in eighth on this list, but that doesn’t reflect his performance this season. Reviving his career on a one-year deal with the Buccaneers, Mayfield found more success, including posting a perfect passer rating in one game at Lambeau Field and excelling against the Eagles in the playoffs last week. Can he go to Detroit and win a road playoff game? That seems like a tall mountain to climb.
Purdy has quickly become one of the most divisive players in the NFL. While some view him as little more than an ineffective game manager on an amazing 49ers team, others credit Purdy as a key reason they’ve become as good as they have. He certainly benefits from stellar teammates and an effective scheme, which make ranking him challenging; nevertheless, his production remains undeniable, but would you choose him over any of his competition on this list?
Goff has excelled since being traded from the Los Angeles Rams. He made one Super Bowl appearance with the Rams but is frequently underestimated; unfortunately, he finds himself here given such a deep field of quarterbacks; nonetheless, it could be argued he should rank higher given 4,575 yards and 30 touchdowns. Goff should be able to get this Lions team to the NFC Championship game. Get the Lions to the Super Bowl, and your respect level will grow behind what Goff himself could have ever imagined.
Over the last nine games for the Packers, Love has amassed a touchdown-to-interception ratio of 21-1 and his performance in their win against Dallas was certainly notable for anyone not paying close attention. Maybe it is unfair to rank him ahead of Goff yet; nevertheless, it was impossible not to be impressed with what we witnessed late in the regular season and against Dallas!
I really wanted to put Stroud at number one in this listing; he has been that good, but I deferred to experience. Last week, Stroud was on fire in his first-ever playoff game against the Cleveland Browns. He has a tall mountain to climb this coming weekend, as the Texans will have to travel to Baltimore to play the Ravens as big underdogs. Stroud has already played in two playoff-like games (Week 18 was a winner-take-all contest at Indianapolis on the road), and in both, he’s completed 36 of 47 passes for 538 yards, five touchdowns, and no interceptions at an incredible 76% completion percentage, 11.4 yards per attempt, and an eye-popping 149.1 passer rating. Perhaps we’ll witness another exceptional performance, but for now, Stroud is a star quarterback no matter what happens in Baltimore.
Jackson deserves to join an elite group that boasts multiple MVP awards. While Jackson may seem incapable of performing in the playoffs, he hasn’t been impressive during three playoff appearances (three touchdown passes and five interceptions), leaving the Ravens with a less-than-stellar playoff record (1-3). There’s only one way Jackson’s postseason woes can end: the Ravens need to make a deep run and Jackson to be as great in them as in regular season play! The situation is eerily similar to the 2019 season when the Ravens were the one seed, and Jackson won the MVP. The Ravens lost that year at home to the Titans.
Mahomes didn’t enjoy an outstanding season like Jackson, Allen or Purdy. His supporting cast wasn’t particularly strong either, and Mahomes wasn’t great in many games – despite initial talk as an MVP candidate; aside from one game with 424 yards against the Chargers in Week 7, which yielded four touchdown passes, he never recorded more than 306 passing yards or three passing touchdowns in any other contests. For the first time in his career, Mahomes will play on the road in the playoffs against Josh Allen; it should be an exciting weekend.
While Allen can sometimes get too reckless, and that can lead to turnovers, no quarterback is expected to do more for their offence than Allen has done this year – with 44 touchdowns during regular season play and making big plays against the Steelers in wild-card games including running 52 yards for a touchdown. Allen does more with less than any other quarterback in the NFL; therefore, he deserves top billing on this list of eight remaining quarterbacks. I know a lot of people would give this spot to Mahomes off what he’s done; the truth is Allen is playing better at this point.
