In the craziest fourth quarter we’ve seen in years, Tua Tagovailoa led the Miami Dolphins back with an epic showing in Baltimore.
Our 2022 FanSided NFL quarterback rankings go live each Wednesday morning throughout the regular season, and we use a sliding scale incorporating current and past performances, with the former meaning more as the year goes on.
NFL quarterback rankings
2022 stats: 362 yards | 59.2 comp % | 2 TD | 1 INT | 5.1 YPA | 38.6 QBR
The sooner Pittsburgh wants to see what it has in Kenny Pickett, the better. There’s simply nothing to be excited about with Trubisky.
2022 stats: 299 yards | 59.1 comp % | 1 TD | 0 INT | 6.8 YPA | 72.8 QBR
Rush threw some nice passes in the win on Sunday over Cincinnati, and he threw a few that should have gone the other way.
2022 stats: 376 yards | 65.6 comp % | 2 TD | 1 INT | 6.2 YPA | 59.4 QBR
Brissett is accurate, but there’s no threat of him ever pushing the ball down the field. Bad starter, good backup.
2022 stats: 616 yards | 61.2 comp % | 5 TD | 1 INT | 6.0 YPA | 39.9 QBR
After that Joe Montana impression, Flacco needed to move up a few spots in the rankings this week.
2022 stats: 191 yards | 53.6 comp % | 2 TD | 2 INT | 6.8 YPA | 24.0 QBR
Fields threw the ball 11 times against the Packers, despite the Bears trailing all night. What are we doing in Chicago?
2022 stats: 411 yards | 62.7 comp % | 2 TD | 2 INT | 7.0 YPA | 59.6 QBR
Mariota has done a respectable job with a bad Falcons team. He’s keeping them in games, and that’s all one can expect.
2022 stats: 392 yards | 81.0 comp % | 2 TD | 1 INT | 6.8 YPA | 62.5 QBR
Smith has been unfailingly accurate throughout the first two weeks. Seattle has to her pleased with what he’s given it so far.
2022 stats: 380 yards | 53.6 comp % | 2 TD | 1 INT | 6.8 YPA | 23.8 QBR
Nowhere near good enough. Mayfield talked about a second chance, a new start, but he’s looked out of place in both games.
2022 stats: 364 yards | 70.9 comp % | 3 TD | 1 INT | 6.6 YPA | 33.1 QBR
Jones hasn’t done anything notable, but he’s largely avoiding killer mistakes and allowing the team to win around him.
2022 stats: 417 yards | 56.0 comp % | 2 TD | 0 INT | 5.6 YPA | 30.1 QBR
Ugly showing in Denver. The Texans don’t have much around Mills, but to have any chance, they need their quarterback to make all the easy throws and a few tough ones.
2022 stats: 505 yards | 64.9 comp % | 3 TD | 3 INT | 6.8 YPA | 27.2 QBR
Winston reverted to Bad Jameis on Sunday against the Bucs, throwing three interceptions including a pick-six. Can’t happen.
2022 stats: 465 yards | 64.6 comp % | 2 TD | 2 INT | 7.2 YPA | 32.2 QBR
Jones was much better on Sunday than he was in Week 1, but that’s not saying much. New England is certainly hoping to see more improvement.
2022 stats: 547 yards | 60.0 comp % | 1 TD | 4 INT | 6.8 YPA | 31.3 QBR
Ryan (and the Colts) have been abysmal so far. Awful interceptions, nothing deep, just bad football all the way around.
2022 stats: 383 yards | 58.5 comp % | 2 TD | 2 INT | 7.2 YPA | 48.3 QBR
If Tannehill and the Titans don’t start playing better, it’ll be Malik Willis time by Week 5.
2022 stats: 471 yards | 57.8 comp % | 6 TD | 1 INT | 6.6 YPA | 52.5 QBR
The Lions are a scoring machine, and Goff is rifling the ball into the end zone at will. The completion rate and YPA aren’t ideal, but it’s better than the ’21 version.
2022 stats: 510 yards | 68.1 comp % | 3 TD | 1 INT | 7.1 YPA | 73.3 QBR
Lawrence wasn’t asked to make any tough throws, or face any pressure, against the Colts. Still, he was 25-of-30 without error.
2022 stats: 650 yards | 65.5 comp % | 7 TD | 3 INT | 7.5 YPA | 51.8 QBR
Wentz had his weekly lowlights against the Lions, but he’s playing well enough for Washington to be a playoff contender. Can he keep it up?
2022 stats: 154 yards | 61.9 comp % | 1 TD | 0 INT | 7.3 YPA | 60.6 QBR
The new boss, same as the old boss.
2022 stats: 498 yards | 64.1 comp % | 3 TD | 3 INT | 6.4 YPA | 45.9 QBR
Cousins should petition the league to move all his games, for now and forever, to 1 p.m. ET on Sunday.
2022 stats: 559 yards | 58.9 comp % | 2 TD | 1 INT | 7.7 YPA | 48.9 QBR
Wilson looks more like Mr. Limited right now. Rough outing against the Texans. The lack of mobility has been, and remains, a concern.
2022 stats: 547 yards | 61.8 comp % | 4 TD | 3 INT | 7.2 YPA | 40.7 QBR
Carr was better on Sunday, but he remains uneven through two weeks. The Raiders need his best this weekend to avoid an 0-3 start.
2022 stats: 470 yards | 63.9 comp % | 3 TD | 1 INT | 5.7 YPA | 62.9 QBR
After six quarters of looking awful, both Murray and the Cardinals awoke. Murray scored on a 21 -second, two-point conversion and then ran a game-tying touchdown followed by another two-point conversion as time remain out in the fourth quarter. A wild win.
2022 stats: 739 yards | 71.1 comp % | 7 TD | 2 INT | 8.9 YPA | 85.7 QBR
The biggest improvement in the rankings this week. Just a phenomenal showing with passes of all depths. Tagovailoa led the Dolphins to an epic comeback in Baltimore, throwing for six touchdowns and 469 yards in a career day.
2022 stats: 576 yards | 69.8 comp % | 1 TD | 1 INT | 9.1 YPA | 70.8 QBR
Hurts’ improvement is evident. He’s throwing the ball with accuracy and velocity, hitting a bevy of different receivers between the numbers. The third-year pro has transformed, and so have the Eagles.
2022 stats: 537 yards | 64.0 comp % | 3 TD | 4 INT | 6.0 YPA | 44.9 QBR
The Bengals are 0-2, Burrow has been sacked 13 times, and the quarterback has a hand in both of those ugly numbers. Burrow needs to get the ball out quicker and help the line out.
2022 stats: 512 yards | 72.7 comp % | 4 TD | 5 INT | 6.6 YPA | 49.8 QBR
Stafford threw two more interceptions and almost lost after doing very little in the fourth quarter against the Falcons, but it was an improvement over the Week 1 disaster.
2022 stats: 531 yards | 64.4 comp % | 6 TD | 1 INT | 9.0 YPA | 76.6 QBR
Jackson threw for more than 300 yards, scored on a 79-yard run, and accounted for four touchdowns. He was magnificent, even if his defense turned the effort into a fun footnote.
2022 stats: 402 yards | 59.0 comp % | 2 TD | 1 INT | 6.6 YPA | 38.7 QBR
Brady doesn’t have much around him, and the results have been a defensive-dominated start for Tampa Bay without much offensive help.
2022 stats: 429 yards | 69.5 comp % | 2 TD | 1 INT | 7.3 YPA | 37.3 QBR
The Packers are relying on their defense, a strong run game and the occasional big-time throw from Rodgers. If that means winning, keep it rolling.
2022 stats: 613 yards | 72.0 comp % | 6 TD | 1 INT | 7.5 YPA | 70.7 QBR
Hopefully Herbert can stay healthy, because he’s an unreal talent. Even with fractured rib cartilage, Herbert was slinging darts in Kansas City, trying to bring the Chargers back.
2022 stats: 614 yards | 75.4 comp % | 7 TD | 2 INT | 8.9 YPA | 87.1 QBR
Allen looks unstoppable in the early going. He can make every throw from every angle. He can also tuck the ball and run over your linebacker. Allen is the complete package.
2022 stats: 595 yards | 73.0 comp % | 7 TD | 0 INT | 8.0 YPA | 82.5 QBR
Mahomes had good fortune last week, as he could have thrown a few picks. However, he also made some spectacular plays, keeping the Chiefs unbeaten.
