2017 NFL QUARTERBACK RATINGS TOP 20

It’s never too early to start looking at the upcoming NFL season. Today, we will rank this year’s top 20 Quarterbacks. Rookies aren’t included in our rankings.

  1. TOM BRADY (NEW ENGLAND). Yes, Brady turns 40 in August but he can still play. He has five Super Bowl rings and four Super Bowl MVP Awards. After leading the Patriots to a come from behind win against Atlanta in the final 20 minutes of the Super Bowl, how is it possible to choose anyone else?
  2. AARON RODGERS (GREEN BAY): Yes, Rodgers is the highest-rated passer in NFL history. Rodgers is also coming off one of his best seasons overall. He almost single-handedly carried the Packers to the playoffs in 2016.
  3. MATT RYAN (ATLANTA). Ryan is the reigning NFL MVP. He led the Falcons to the Super Bowl after pacing the league with a passer-rating of 117.1. Ryan almost hit the 5,000 yard-mark while throwing 38TD’s and just seven interceptions.
  4. DREW BREES (NEW ORLEANS). Brees completed 70% of his passes last season while throwing for 5,208 yards. The only downfall for Brees is interceptions (15 in 2016).
  5. BEN ROETHLISBERGER (PITTSBURGH). The Steelers’ offense was the most explosive in the NFL by seasons end. When healthy, Big Ben is as good as it gets.
  6. ANDREW LUCK (INDIANAPOLIS). Started 15 games last season after suffering an injury-plagued 2015 campaign. Luck threw for 31 TD’s, averaging 7.8 yards per pass play.
  7. RUSSELL WILSON (SEATTLE). Wilson is as dangerous as any QB in the NFL. He is one of the best game managers in football. He is effective behind a poor offensive line.

  10. CAM NEWTON (CAROLINA). Newton was the league’s MVP in 2015, but took a huge step backward last season. Injuries hindered his season in 2016, throwing only 19TD and 14INT.
  11. MATT STAFFORD (DETROIT). Stafford was in the MVP talk in 2016 until he suffered an injury in week 14.
