To me, Hurts is easily last on this list! He runs too much for me, and he runs too much to win in the playoffs. The Eagles have shocked everybody by making the playoffs, but their college RPO offense will be one and done.
Jones has a bright future ahead as he is in a great situation with Bill Belichick. The Patriots still don’t have enough weapons for Jones to take this team on a run, but Jones could lead Belichick back to another Super Bowl when they do. The Patriots are probably still a couple of years away from a deep run.
The Cardinals have lost four of their last five games entering the playoffs, and Murray, when he has played, has been running more than usual. The best thing for Murray is a playoff matchup with Matthew Stafford, who hasn’t proven he can play on a big stage yet, either.
He is not what he used to be, but he is still an experienced quarterback who helped lead an undermanned team to the playoffs. He’s been there and done that, and this is his final go-round. Will the Steelers beat the Chiefs? Probably not, but don’t be surprised if Big Ben puts a scare into the Chiefs as he rides off into the sunset.
These playoffs will answer many questions about Stafford one way or another. Stafford is the king of pick-sixes! He has never won a playoff game, and I don’t have a lot of confidence in him in a playoff situation. He is capable, but it’s hard to imagine him leading a Super Bowl run when you consider he has a career record against winning teams of 11-70. That being said, if he can eliminate stupid turnovers, he has maybe the best roster in the NFL.
Carr played exceedingly well over the Raiders four-game winning streak to get into the playoffs. It has taken him eight years to get to the playoffs, but that was primarily because of the Raiders as an organization. Can Carr take it to the next level and win a playoff game?
In the current setup with Derrick Henry coming back, Tannehill could lead the Titans on a Super Bowl run. He has playoff experience and seems to be able to make the needed plays to win come playoff time. He is not a stat guy unless your vital stats are wins and losses.
This may surprise some people, but Jimmy G. has been highly underrated. He helped lead the 49ers to the Super Bowl just two seasons ago and if you do not believe how valuable he is to the 49ers looked how they played when he didn’t play.
Prescott has had a remarkable season coming back from an injury that ended his season early last year. Prescott closed the regular season with 13 TDs and no interceptions in Dallas’ last four games. A deep playoff run is expected from the Cowboys, and that pressure will fall directly on Prescott’s shoulders.
Allen helped lead the Bills to the AFC Championship game last season; the question now is can he take the Bills to the Super Bowl? Allen has played very well over the second half of this season, and there can be no doubt that Allen is now an elite NFL quarterback.
Burrow has not been to the playoffs until this season, but the way he played in must-win games against the Ravens and Chiefs is hard to ignore. Can he continue to play at the extraordinarily high level that he has in the playoffs? My guess is yes, and if he does, he will solidify himself as the next face of the NFL.
His season wasn’t as spectacular as the last three seasons, but his past playoff experience is why he is this high. In his previous six AFC playoff games, Mahomes averaged 294.3 yards with 15 TDs and no interceptions. He is the only quarterback in the AFC with Super Bowl experience, and he has won one.
Rodgers is in the same place as he was last year! Home-field advantage throughout the playoffs and the leader to win the NFL’s MVP, but we know how it turned out last year. The difference between Brady and Rodgers lies right here; Rodgers is 5-3 in postseason starts at Lambeau Field. He’s also 1-4 in the NFC championship game. Those stats, which are the most essential, do not compare to Tom Brady.
Who else would it be? Seven Super Bowl Championships, and he is just as good as he ever was at the age of 44! Hell, people don’t even mention his age anymore. It seems no matter how many weapons he losses, he keeps winning and making everybody around him better. He’s played in 10 Super Bowls, three more than the rest of the field combined. He beat the next two QBs on this list in last year’s postseason.
