Joe Montana Division
4. Patrick Mahomes (LW: 6)
What else is there to say? Mahomes was utterly brilliant on Monday night, throwing for 304 yards and a touchdown while willing the Chiefs to victory. At this point, it’s impossible to think that he’s coming back to earth. Some guys are legitimately great, and it certainly appears we are headed that way.
3. Tom Brady (LW: 4)
Brady and the Patriots got back on track against the Dolphins, who looked very disinterested in playing football. The future first-ballot Hall of Famer threw a pair of interceptions but totaled three touchdowns in the runaway win. Next up? The Colts on Thursday night.
2. Aaron Rodgers (LW: 2)
Rodgers is playing on half of one leg and still has 1,130 yards and seven touchdowns with a single interception. If the Packers can finally get something going on the ground and give Rodgers some open receivers downfield, he’ll remain the best quarterback in the league.
1. Drew Brees (LW: 1)
Brees needs 201 yards on Monday night against Washington to set the all-time mark for career passing yards, eclipsing Peyton Manning’s record. Despite being known as one of the greats, it’s still true that Brees is underappreciated for just how spectacular he has been.
