2022 NFL QB Power Rankings Week 12: Cowboys’ Dak Prescott, 49ers’ Jimmy Garoppolo among big movers

At this point, no one seems like a safer bet to reach the Super Bowl than the Chiefs. As usual, that’s mostly down to Mahomes, averaging nearly three touchdowns per game to easily pace the league. Best of all, no one is more unfazed, regardless of the score or the circumstances. 2

Errors around him, from his teammates and the playmaker, have left the Eagles vulnerable recently. Hurts himself overcame it all; he always takes care of the ball, and he is completely insensitive to the moment, always proving the grip on the ground. 3

Without Ja’Marr Chase, all Burrow has done is reposition Cincinnati to make some noise in the AFC. What it lacks in Josh Allen-esque versatility, it makes up for in reliability, passing all pocket tests with flying colors. Only Mahomes has scored more touchdowns. (+1) 4

Only Mahomes is still as dangerous as ever, but some of his outburst-or-collapse tendencies erupted as he struggled with elbow pain. After opening the year looking even more improved as a decision-maker, he’s back to being a sniper – explosive but vulnerable. (-1) 5

Not much of his game, or the Ravens’ offense, is looking very pretty thanks to another year of injuries on the outside and up front. Still, he’s on pace for over 1,100 rushing yards, never allowing Baltimore to be written off. 6

Everyone wants to see how he fares, with a playoff trip on the line, but so far he’s proven he can be a clutch distributor for Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, behaving like a ultra-efficient version of Jimmy Garoppolo for Mike. Mc Daniel. seven

In 10 games, he’s been the most accurate of any active starting QB. But he doesn’t just play it safe, as we all assumed, also ranking 8th among regular starters in yards per attempt. The stretch race will be fascinating for its 2023 prospects. 8

Bruce Arians recently said the Bucs have regained their swagger. Brady seems to be included. He wasn’t very effective overall, but he did more than enough in critical time to put Tampa Bay back in the mix. An underestimated figure: only four turnovers in 10 games. (+1) 9

Dick is back. Four games after returning from injury, Prescott finally seems perfectly at ease. He’s completed more than 75% of his shots on three occasions since mid-October, and the Cowboys have the staff to let him continue to play point guard rather than superhero. (+6) ten

Rodgers’ top-10 finish is more indicative of the overall mediocrity of the position than anything he did for the losing Packers. We have no doubt the Pro Bowl A-Rod is staying indoors, but Green Bay’s poor setup has hurt his consistency. (-2) 11

Keep it up, and he’ll enter 2023 fighting Trey Lance again, if not opening the year as an absolute starter. Jimmy G has his ceiling when making an attack, but he showed a surprising amount of pocket mobility while feeding all of Kyle Shanahan’s point guards. (+2) 12

The Vikings’ embarrassing loss to Dallas wasn’t on him at all; when the line folds, he can’t do much. But Minnesota’s narrow wins this year have somehow masked an unusually streaky year for the generally effective vet. (-2) 13

There’s really no reason a QB of his caliber should trail Zach Wilson, PJ Walker and Mac Jones in yards per attempt. His gun is on par with Mahomes and Allen, but he has yet to settle when it counts. LA needs to fix that. (-1) 14

Malik Willis’ brief entry as an injury substitute may have sparked something in him, as he’s recently come on involving Treylon Burks and Austin Hooper. Derrick Henry still runs the show, but Tannehill has quietly posted the No. 7 passer rating among active starters. (+3) 15

Jones’ run as a reformed ball keeper ended bitterly in New York’s loss to Detroit. And now his barren receiving body is even more battered. Brian Daboll’s only hope for a second-half push may be to lean on the QB’s legs even more. (-1) 16

If anything, the Davante Adams connection works: 10 of his 15 TDs are at the ex-Packers star. In truth, Carr showed more life as Josh McDaniels’ seat heated up. (+3) 17

He took a step back in November, avoiding picks and making more than 70% of his throws in back-to-back competitive starts. We may not learn its true cap for about a year, but at least it’s moving in the right direction. (+3) 18

One of the more curious QBs on the roster, Goff’s best numbers have come when Detroit is losing, meaning an ability to catch up. He successfully stayed away during the Lions’ recent hot streak. (+5) 19

Funny enough, as Deshaun Watson prepares to take over, Brissett has shown off some of his best tricks in recent weeks. He cut back on forced throws and developed strong red-zone chemistry with his pass catchers. (+5) 20

Mariota’s mystery is that the Falcons don’t – and almost can’t – count on him in the air, and yet he brings enough shrewd mobility that, like an extremely lightweight version of Lamar Jackson or Justin Fields, he can move the chains. . (+6) 21

Considering how dysfunctional the Colts have been this year, he’s actually been remarkably resilient, keeping Michael Pittman Jr. and Parris Campbell busy. That doesn’t mean he’s more than a mid-tier option behind a shaky line. (-3) 22

The victories follow one another in Washington, which justifies that Ron Rivera remains faithful to his energetic leadership. The key to continued success is taking what the defense gives rather than getting greedy, especially given how talented he is in skill points. 23

It’s either three touchdowns or three turnovers with this guy, it seems. All in all, Dalton actually animated an otherwise faltering Saints team. But can he do it regularly against legitimate teams? (+5) 24

Even granting Russ patience as he moves to a new team and a new coach, how on earth does he have seven touchdowns and five picks in nine games? Denver really was dead in the water with the former Seahawks star under center. (-3) 25

As long as he keeps getting ahead of the hapless Zach Wilson in AFC East battles, letting the Patriots defense do all the work, it’s fine, isn’t it? New England could make a playoff bid without him throwing a TD pass again. 26

Give the old man props for dumping it against the 49ers front as Kyler Murray rested his hamstrings. He’s at least more structured than Murray in his execution, but playing with an aging and injured Cardinals roster, you can’t expect him to do the same. 27

He takes shots, which is more than many Steelers fans can ask for in Matt Canada’s predictable system. It also lacks a decent amount of potential lay-ups. It’s unfair to label the kid one thing or another until he gets a proper audition in 2023. (+3) 28

We expect Darnold to replace Baker Mayfield, which Steve Wilks has already planned. Even if he doesn’t, or if PJ Walker is back, Carolina’s place in the order is the same. This franchise is just counting the days until their next QB reset. 29

Robert Saleh isn’t committing to Zach Wilson, which means this could be White’s moment. Either way, the Jets’ biggest problem lies below center, where they’ve failed to get even competent production despite playing playoff-caliber training. 30

This is the replacement QB region, as you can see. Davis Mills’ job is in jeopardy, Lovie Smith admitted, but Allen isn’t exactly a savvy No. 2, bringing average experience from Carolina and Washington. 31

Matthew Stafford is back on concussion protocol and John Wolford is nursing a sore neck. Perkins is therefore in line for his first career start against none other than Mahomes and the Chiefs. 32

Justin Fields’ dropout may not be all that stiff in terms of late-game passing touch, but Siemian, unlike the regular starter here, is definitely not one of the NFL’s best on the field. .
