Joe Montana Division
4. Tom Brady (LW: 4)
Brady did his job against the Bills, throwing for 324 yards on 45 attempts in a 25-6 win over the hapless Bills. The Patriots continue to roll towards a first-round playoff bye and an easy AFC East title, with their 41-year-old quarterback on pace for another 4,000 yards and then some.
3. Patrick Mahomes (LW: 3)
We haven’t seen something like this since Dan Marino in 1984. Mahomes is a second-year player, a first-time starter, and he’s leading the NFL in passing yardage (2,526) and touchdown passes (26). This isn’t a good season, this is turning into a historic one for a player who appears destined to take the mantle when the current greats retire.
2. Aaron Rodgers (LW: 2)
Rodgers got robbed on Sunday. Is there any doubt that the Packers would have won on Sunday in Los Angeles if Ty Montgomery just takes a damn knee? Now, Rodgers has another chance for a major win on Sunday night in Foxborough against Brady’s Bunch.
1. Drew Brees (LW: 1)
Brees did nothing of note on Sunday against Minnesota, except finally throwing his first interception of the season. To this point, the 39-year-old has 1,990 yards and 14 touchdown passes on 8.19 yards per attempt, running New Orleans’ complicated offense to perfection.
