Joe Montana Division
4. Philip Rivers (LW: 4)
Rivers and the Chargers got the train rolling against the Bills, with the future Hall of Famer going for 256 yards on 23-of-27 passing in a 31-20 win. If Rivers gets time, he’s going to slice and dice almost every defense in the league. Perpetually underrated, mostly because his team, oddly enough, is constantly underperforming.
3. Tom Brady (LW: 3)
Brady is off to a slow start by his standards, sitting 17th in passing yards (511) after two weeks. That said, the 41-year-old has five touchdowns against a single interception and should pad those stats in the coming weeks with the Lions, Dolphins, Colts and Chiefs coming up over the next month.
2. Drew Brees (LW: 2)
The Saints are not playing well, but the quarterback is getting the job done on his end. Brees has already thrown for 682 yards and five touchdowns without an interception. In all likelihood, Brees will wind up as the league’s all-time yardage leader, something that seemed unfathomable during his first few years in San Diego.
1. Aaron Rodgers (LW: 1)
Rodgers is playing on a single leg, and he’s still slinging the rock all over the place. The Vikings have one of the best defenses in the game and Rodgers led the Packers to 29 points with 281 yards and a touchdown. Nobody at the quarterback position is more talented.
