The NFL in 2022 feels like a changing of the guard season at the Quarterback position. For the last decade the league was dominated by guys like Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, and Russell Wilson. There were some young guys showing their talent across the league though. Josh Allen in Buffalo, Patrick Mahomes in Kansas City, and Joe Burrow in Cincinnati have all flashed in big ways. But this year the old guard seems to have stepped aside in favor of the young guys. Tua Tagovailoa, Jalen Hurts and even Geno Smith have elevated their play this year to levels some thought they would never see. A decade from now we will look back on the 2022 season and draw a line in the sand that this was the year the mantle was passed.
Looking at the top 10 NFL quarterbacks in 2022 a great starting point is looking at the top scoring offenses. The oldest Quarterback leading a top-10 scoring offense this year is Kirk Cousins. He is 34 years-old. With that said, Minnesota is 15th in yards per game. So they are scoring, but not necessarily a consistently performing offense. Miami Dolphins quarterback is now one of the top 10 NFL Quarterbacks, as is Jalen Hurts in Philadelphia. Has Justin Fields done enough over the last 3 weeks to put himself in the top 10 NFL Quarterbacks list? Is Jared Goff leading a surprisingly good Lions offense in the top 10? I will take recent form into considerations. However the entirety of 2022 is the only season taken into account. Congrats Tom on all your Super Bowls. But they will not help you here. This is the top 10 NFL Quarterbacks.
