With the final week of the 2020 NFL regular season almost here, it’s time to take one final look at the league’s quarterback power rankings heading into Week 17! While this week’s like features some familiar names at the top, a few surprise signal-callers make this week’s list with two of those unfamiliar names being among the league’s top five this week. Now, let’s find out which signal-callers are looking good heading into the final week of action so you can keep making your bets against their NFL odds.
QBs Power Rankings Heading Into Week 17 | NFL Betting
No. 10 Justin Herbert – LA Chargers
While LA’s star rookie didn’t throw for 300 yards or toss multiple TD passes in the Chargers‘ 19-16 home win over Denver, the former Oregon star did pass for 253 yards with one TD pass and no picks while setting a new NFL record for touchdown passes by a rookie (28). This dude has a future so bright, I need sunglasses!
No. 9 Mitch Trubisky
While Trubisky had a solid 265 passing yards with two TD tosses and one interception, Chicago’s much-maligned signal-caller has led the Bears to three straight wins to keep their playoff hopes alive heading into their Week 17 home date against Green Bay!
No. 8 Patrick Mahomes
Mahomes had a modest 278 passing yards with two touchdowns and one interception. Still, the game’s best quarterback came alive in the second half to lead Kansas City to a hard-fought 17-14 home win over Atlanta while helping the Chiefs clinch the top seed in the AFC playoffs.
No. 7 Deshaun Watson
It’s a damned shame that Deshaun Watson has no help, but it’s incredible to see the former Clemson star having an MVP caliber campaign despite a lack of talent around him. Watson passed for 324 yards with three TD passes and no interceptions – in Houston’s 37-31 home loss against Cincinnati. Watson ranks second in passing yards (4,458) and ninth in TD passes (30).
No. 6 Ben Roethlisberger
Big Ben passed for 342 yards with three TD passes and no interceptions to lead Pittsburgh to a much-needed 28-24 comeback win over Indianapolis on Sunday. Roethlisberger ranks a stellar sixth in TD passes (33).
No. 5 Brandon Allen
Cincinnati’s veteran backup had the best game of his career by passing for a stunning 371 yards with two TD passes and no interceptions to lead the Bengals to a thrilling 37-31 road win over Houston on Sunday.
No. 4 Andy Dalton
Dalton had the most passing yards of any quarterback in Week 16 (377) while throwing a pair of touchdown passes and one interception in Dallas’ convincing 37-17 smackdown of Philadelphia on Sunday.
No. 3 Aaron Rodgers
Green Bay’s longtime franchise superstar passed for a modest 231 yards, but managed to throw four TD passes and one pick in the Packers‘ emphatic 40-14 smackdown of Tennessee on Sunday night.
No. 2 Tom Brady
Brady had his best game of the season by passing for 348 yards with four TD passes and no interceptions in Tampa Bays’ 47-7 blowout win over the pitiful Lions. Brady ranks fifth in passing yards (4,234) fourth in TD passes (36) and ninth in quarterback rating (71.9).
No.1 Josh Allen
Buffalo’s still-blossoming third-year franchise signal-caller torched New England for 320 passing yards with four TD passes and no picks in Buffalo’s jaw-dropping 38-9 rout of New England on Monday night to get the top spot in the quarterback power rankings. For the season, Allen ranks third in passing yards, (4,320), fifth in touchdown passes (34) and third in quarterback rating (81.6).
