Aaron Rodgers deals vs. Rams

Our 2021 FanSided NFL quarterback rankings go live each Tuesday 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.

32

Zach Wilson

QB New York Jets

2021 stats: 1,313 yards | 57.6 comp % | 4 TD | 10 INT | 6.4 YPA | 23.4 QBR

LW: NA

The Jets finally won a game, but Wilson continues to look completely lost.

31

Trevor Siemian

QB New Orleans Saints

2021 stats: 1,083 yards | 57.2 comp % | 9 TD | 3 INT | 6.3 YPA | 32.5 QBR

LW: 28

Siemian and the Saints have no ability to move the ball. Been really rough.

30

Jared Goff

QB Detroit Lions

2021 stats: 2,280 yards | 67.3 comp % | 10 TD | 6 INT | 6.4 YPA | 29.3 QBR

LW: NA

Let’s just move on.

29

Cam Newton

QB Carolina Panthers

2021 stats: 289 yards | 55.8 comp % | 3 TD | 2 INT | 5.6 YPA | 35.2 QBR

LW: 24

Newton has enjoyed a wonderful career highlighted by a 2015 MVP, but it’s time for the rocking chair.

28

Andy Dalton

QB Chicago Bears

2021 stats: 788 yards | 64.3 comp % | 4 TD | 2 INT | 7.0 YPA | 52.9 QBR

LW: NA

Dalton is the better quarterback compared to Justin Fields, but if the Bears had any sense (they don’t), they’d give the young kid a chance to grow.

27

Colt McCoy

QB Arizona Cardinals

2021 stats: 684 yards | 75.6 comp % | 3 TD | 1 INT | 7.6 YPA | 53.5 QBR

LW: 28

Does McCoy get another start after the bye? Probably not, but he did an admirable job.

26

Trevor Lawrence

QB Jacksonville Jaguars

2021 stats: 2,369 yards | 58.0 comp % | 9 TD | 10 INT | 6.0 YPA | 33.8 QBR

LW: 26

Jacksonville had done its prized possession no favors, but Lawrence has also struggled on his own accord. A long season.

25

Ben Roethlisberger

QB Pittsburgh Steelers

2021 stats: 2,522 yards | 64.6 comp % | 14 TD | 6 INT | 6.6 YPA | 43.1 QBR

LW: 25

Roethlisberger is absolutely, unequivocally finished. After this year, the Steelers must quickly move on.

24

Tyrod Taylor

QB Houston Texans

2021 stats: 921 yards | 62.8 comp % | 5 TD | 4 INT | 6.7 YPA | 46.7 QBR

LW: 27

If Taylor was on a team that could block, catch or run a decent offensive scheme, he could still win some games. Unfortunately, he’s on Houston.

23

Daniel Jones

QB New York Giants

2021 stats: 2,428 yards | 64.3 comp % | 10 TD | 7 INT | 6.7 YPA | 40.9 QBR

LW: 23

Jones continues to manage games without making crippling mistakes, but the Giants are completely devoid of big plays.

22

Baker Mayfield

QB Cleveland Browns

2021 stats: 2,413 yards | 62.2 comp % | 11 TD | 6 INT | 7.7 YPA | 37.9 QBR

LW: 20

Mayfield is hurt, fine. If he can’t play better than this — and his receivers are no help whatsoever — then it’s time to sit him down. Cleveland has no offense.

21

Tua Tagovailoa

QB Miami Dolphins

2021 stats: 1,701 yards | 70.5 comp % | 10 TD | 6 INT | 7.3 YPA | 57.6 QBR

LW: 22

Tagovailoa only had four incompletions in a demolition of the Panthers. Give Tagovailoa and the Dolphins credit for making a run.

20

Teddy Bridgewater

QB Denver Broncos

2021 stats: 2,518 yards | 68.7 comp % | 15 TD | 5 INT | 7.4 YPA | 50.0 QBR

LW: 19

Bridgewater does enough to win, but Sunday was largely about the Denver defense rising up.

19

Jalen Hurts

QB Philadelphia Eagles

2021 stats: 2,435 yards | 60.1 comp % | 13 TD | 8 INT | 6.9 YPA | 47.9 QBR

LW: 16

Hurts had his worst performance at the pro level on Sunday with three interceptions in a 13-7 loss. Brutal defeat for Philadelphia.

18

Taylor Heinicke

QB Washington Football Team

2021 stats: 2,613 yards | 66.2 comp % | 16 TD | 10 INT | 7.3 YPA | 48.4 QBR

LW: 21

Heinicke isn’t doing any special. He’s managing the game with a limited offense, but he’s avoiding the mistake which got him in trouble earlier this year.

17

Matt Ryan

QB Atlanta Falcons

2021 stats: 2,617 yards | 67.5 comp % | 16 TD | 11 INT | 6.9 YPA | 50.4 QBR

LW: 17

Ryan has zero help around him, and he’s struggling to generate much of anything for Atlanta.

The Tennessean

16

Ryan Tannehill

QB Tennessee Titans

2021 stats: 2,774 yards | 65.8 comp % | 14 TD | 13 INT | 7.1 YPA | 53.3 QBR

LW: 15

Tannehill is dealing with a crush of injuries and the result is a neutered offense and a quarterback who isn’t equipped to carry the load.

15

Jimmy Garoppolo

QB San Francisco 49ers

2021 stats: 2,342 yards | 66.8 comp % | 13 TD | 6 INT | 8.4 YPA | 58.5 QBR

LW: 18

Garoppolo has the Niners humming along, letting the rushing attack lead the way. It’s a good rhythm right now.

14

Russell Wilson

QB Seattle Seahawks

2021 stats: 1,811 yards | 64.9 comp % | 12 TD | 3 INT | 8.2 YPA | 45.6 QBR

LW: 12

Wilson is suffering a staggering drop. The Seahawks are atrocious, and Wilson has been right there with them. Making almost no plays.

13

Carson Wentz

QB Indianapolis Colts

2021 stats: 2,790 yards | 62.8 comp % | 21 TD | 5 INT | 7.0 YPA | 56.7 QBR

LW: 14

Wentz played really well for three quarters but couldn’t finish against the Buccaneers. In fairness, Wentz has bad moments, but he’s really bounced back in 2021.

12

Mac Jones

QB New England Patriots

2021 stats: 2,850 yards | 70.3 comp % | 16 TD | 8 INT | 7.5 YPA | 52.6 QBR

LW: 13

Jones continues to dazzle. The box score was more impressive than the actual tape — although the first touchdown to Kendrick Bourne was awesome — but he’s efficient, smart and evolving.

11

Joe Burrow

QB Cincinnati Bengals

2021 stats: 2,835 yards | 69.3 comp % | 22 TD | 12 INT | 8.4 YPA | 51.2 QBR

LW: 11

You see 41 points and think huge game for Burrow, but he really played point guard while allowing the defense and Joe Mixon to do most of the work. A great day for Cincinnati.

10

Kirk Cousins

QB Minnesota Vikings

2021 stats: 3,013 yards | 67.7 comp % | 23 TD | 3 INT | 7.4 YPA | 57.0 QBR

LW: 9

Cousins puts up numbers, and the Vikings certainly didn’t lose to the Niners because of him. But at some point, it matters that his stats never translate into big wins.

9

Lamar Jackson

QB Baltimore Ravens

2021 stats: 2,612 yards | 64.2 comp % | 15 TD | 12 INT | 7.7 YPA | 51.0 QBR

LW: 7

Jackson was rancid on Sunday, throwing four interceptions in what somehow ended up a 16-10 win. The Ravens need him to be so much better as the schedule gets tougher.

8

Derek Carr

QB Las Vegas Raiders

2021 stats: 3,414 yards | 67.3 comp % | 17 TD | 9 INT | 8.3 YPA | 57.2 QBR

LW: 10

Carr was fantastic on Thanksgiving against the Cowboys in the Raiders’ overtime win. Now, at 6-6, Las Vegas needs him to steer the franchise towards the postseason.

7

Josh Allen

QB Buffalo Bills

2021 stats: 3,071 yards | 66.8 comp % | 25 TD | 10 INT | 7.5 YPA | 60.6 QBR

LW: 8

Allen faces a critical two-week stretch, with the Bills hosting the Patriots before visiting the Buccaneers only six days later. Buffalo needs him to be in MVP form.

6

Justin Herbert

QB Los Angeles Chargers

2021 stats: 3,230 yards | 66.0 comp % | 24 TD | 10 INT | 7.4 YPA | 65.8 QBR

LW: 5

Herbert has been held back significantly by offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi’s scheme. Still, he’s  alternating between playing at an elite level and making too many poor decisions, leading to turnovers.

5

Dak Prescott

QB Dallas Cowboys

2021 stats: 2,932 yards | 69.4 comp % | 22 TD | 7 INT | 7.8 YPA | 50.7 QBR

LW: 6

Prescott was terrific down the stretch against the Raiders, but it wasn’t enough. After losing three of their last four, the Cowboys need Prescott to elevate as they get CeeDee Lamb back.

4

Matthew Stafford

QB Los Angeles Rams

2021 stats: 3,315 yards | 66.5 comp % | 27 TD | 9 INT | 8.3 YPA | 65.8 QBR

LW: 2

Stafford is apparently playing hurt, and things aren’t going well. The Rams haven’t won in a month and Stafford has been throwing interceptions. Have to turn it around.

3

Patrick Mahomes

QB Kansas City Chiefs

2021 stats: 3,200 yards | 65.5 comp % | 25 TD | 11 INT | 7.1 YPA | 57.3 QBR

LW: 4

Mahomes has quietly moved up the rankings, as he’s done in the MVP conversation. The Chiefs are 7-4 and their quarterback has a chance to get more acclaim on Sunday night this week.

2

Aaron Rodgers

QB Green Bay Packers

2021 stats: 2,878 yards | 66.2 comp % | 23 TD | 4 INT | 7.7 YPA | 64.9 QBR

LW: 3

Rodgers isn’t putting up enormous numbers, but he’s playing with elite vision, accuracy and control of the game. Just beautiful football to watch.

1

Tom Brady

QB Tampa Bay Buccaneers

2021 stats: 3,417 yards | 67.6 comp % | 30 TD | 9 INT | 7.4 YPA | 63.6 QBR

LW: 1

Brady continues to handle business. Despite a slow start against the Colts, he rallied over the last three quarters, helping the Bucs score 38 points in a stirring victory. Leading the league with 30 touchdowns.
