The first eight weeks of the 2020 season were in many ways the best combined quarterback series in NFL history. It was easy to ignore in the context of daily updates on coronavirus pandemics and very rapid changes in coaches, but the league’s total HBI of 65.6 is almost 10% higher than the second best point for the same time of the season since ESPN began compiling in 2006.
Because of this, our quarterback prices will be a little more dazzling in the middle of the season than in some other seasons. We will do our best to keep the balance, although we see several MVP level players and several newcomers have entered the scene using ESPN Stats & Information and NFL Next Gen Stats data, unless otherwise stated.
Wilson has scored 26 touchdowns in the NFL, more than any other player in the history of the NFL in seven games, with the exception of Tom Brady, who scored 27 touchdowns in 2007, while he has scored 50 this season.
Now we can safely say that Wilson has mastered the art of chaotic hand-to-hand combat. He was under pressure with 35.9% of the total number of shots, which is the third highest in the NFL, partly because he held the ball on average 2.94 seconds before the shot, which is the fifth highest in the NFL. However, 12 of his touchdown passes have been under pressure and his next goal will be the most important for the quarterback this season since ESPN started after them in 2009. NFL defencemen are trying to get the quarterbacks off the pace, but Wilson has become the best driver in the unplanned league.
Meanwhile, his 38-yard touchdown to receiver David Moore holds up in the second half of the game. The week continues with the most improbable year-end position based on the NFL Next Gen Stats completion probability algorithm.

Expectations for Mahomez, who turned 25 at the start of the season, are so high that few people realise that he is playing at a higher level than in the MVP season of 2018. His QBR (85.4), finishing percentage (66.9%) and touchdown (21-1) are higher in the first eight games. In fact, no quarterback in league history has ever thrown more touchdown passes with one or more interceptions in the first eight games of the season.
The only negative comment that can be made is that six of his touchdown passes were made in a high-profile on-screen game, three times more than any other quarterback, as the Chiefs generally take advantage of the speed of their team. But somebody’s gotta get the ball there, right?
At the beginning of the season Rothlisberger’s hand caused some anxiety. His 2019 season was interrupted by a major elbow operation, and at the age of 38 one wonders if he can go all the way. Most of these problems have been solved.
Staying behind the other 21 IBC quarterbacks (61.0), Rotlisberger showed enough strength and precision in his hand to demand respect from the opposing defense. If you have any questions, take a look at the minutes of Rothlisberger’s 28-yard shot that Chase Kleipul used to accept his victory over the Giants in Steel’s first week.

Claypool pushed the Steelers against the third and ninth player and stepped back to the right in the back corner of James Bradberry’s Giants. Nickel defender Julian Love ran to the rescue, but Rothlisberger hit Claypool on the left shoulder just before he arrived. The NFL Next Gen Stats ranked the game as the fourth best end of the season (13.8 percent chance), mainly because Kleipul was 0.2 yards off the sideline when he caught the ball.
Locke’s support at the start of the Broncos didn’t seem very convincing when he faced the Chargers in the fourth quarter on Sunday. The Broncos were 24-10 with only one touchdown pass at the time, allowing them to reach 55.2 percent for the season. But then Locke made a comeback with 14 of 18 passes for 155 yards and three touchdowns for 31-30 victories.
Some of these outbreaks are certainly due to the confusion caused by the Churgers in their defensive approach. They flashed only once throughout the quarter, giving Locke an average of 2.96 seconds for the shot – well above the NFL season average of 2.73. However, Locke bought time and capital during a season that the Broncos had apparently set aside to see if this could be their long-term entry.
Joe Barrow was a hero as a promising Bengali starter, and with the third largest race in the NFL (2272), he could be on his way to winning the NFL Rookie of the Year award. But the voters would do well to find Herbert, who was promoted a second week before departure.
Especially Herbert plays very well in midfield. He lets them fly, but on purpose. Herbert is associated with Wilson because he leads the NFL in touchdown passes that run at least 15 yards in the air (nine), and he leads the competition with seven scored pitches that run at least 20 yards. As a result, according to NFL Next Gen Stats, it is the third most likely that the final work in the competitions will be completed.
The Chargers have followed their usual path and have already lost 17 points three times this season. But even if they don’t win another game, they can definitely participate in the quarterback lottery.
You can’t ask for better support for a rookie making his NFL debut. Tagovayloa relied on the dolphin defense and special forces and witnessed the victory of the dolphins with 28-17 on the Rams in week 8. He made 93 yards in 22 attempts, which was the least important requirement for the starting quarterback to win this season, and he tried only three passes that dropped 15 yards or more. He was also the first quarterback to throw less than 100 yards and won his first career in 21 years (Donovan McNabb, 1999).
We found out that while Tagovayloa could take a hit against the NFL – he was filled with first-quarter bags, causing him to lose – he doesn’t know much more about how to make his skills professional. And that’s good. The dolphins wisely organized this transition. They are not going to Tagovayloa to save their season or the work of their coach and general manager. They just want to have living representatives within a broader structure of the reconstruction process that gives them a better chance of winning each week than many observers predict. Any team would want to do it this way, but the Dolphins can be there to get the job done.
Mayfield has sparked one of the most polarizing debates in the NFL this season. Can he pass the first reading? Is he better off without Odell Beckham Jr. in the field? Is he at the forefront of a breakthrough, or are the Browns defending their game plans for him?

More NFL coverage.
At least on paper the real Mayfield looks pretty clear. He was one of the best quarterbacks in the league this season when he wasn’t under pressure and one of the worst when he was under pressure.
Mayfield hasn’t been injured this season and hasn’t been forced to make 185 crashes. His QBR of 67.4 in these games is a tie number 10 in the NFL, thanks to his 67.4% pass speed and 13 of his 15 touchdown passes. But when he either under duress, beaten or both, Mayfield bets on the 55.7 CBI, which ranks 25th in the NFL. Of the 57 retirements, he made 41.3% of his passes in two touchdowns with three interceptions. It’s not uncommon for the quarterback to come under pressure, but the imbalance for Mayfield is significant and gives the opponent a clear line to limit his effectiveness.
Too few people understand that Wentz – not a Giants sales machine, Daniel Jones – is leading the NFL in ticket distribution this season. Wentz made 12 interceptions and lost four out of seven, making his total (16) significantly higher than Jones’ (13).
Nothing else should matter in Wentz’s game, even if he sometimes puts a perfectly thrown ball in an important situation – as he did when he won the game beating the Giants Jones in week 7 with an 18-yard Boston Scott touchdown. Honestly, the Eagles are lucky they weren’t hurt any more than they were. Wentz’ average turnover was minus 3.5 predicted points (EPA), the twelfth lowest of 38 players who have completed at least three rounds this season. In other words, it could have been much worse.
If you are disappointed that a 5-year veteran like Wenz makes such mistakes, how do you react when your cousins – in grade 9 – make such mistakes? years – have almost reached the same level again? The nephews had the third largest turnover in the NFL (11 ), after Ventz and Jones.

At the beginning of his career as a point player and even after he had become a full player, his cousins changed their attitude. Between 2015 and 2018, he threw the ball 64 times and finished fifth in the NFL. In 2019 he took matters into his own hands and limited himself to nine, winning the Pro Bowl awards. But the cousins will go back to their old ways in 2020.
It shows how the Vikings have adapted after their farewell week. With the return of Dalvin Cook in the peloton, and it is true that a strong wind on Sunday at Lambo Field in Green Bay, the Vikings forced the cousins to follow their program. He has an average of 1.79 flying yards on a single pass, which is the second lowest score for a player who has had at least 10 attempts in the last 15 seasons. When Cook collected 226 universal yards and scored four touchdowns, his cousin’s deepest pass was eight yards behind the mixing line.
