Jacoby Brissett was great in Week 7, make no mistake. But his performance of four touchdowns on Sunday, in a 30-23 win against the Houston Texans, makes him the best quarterback of the AFC at the present time ?
We will bet that most of you are likely to say no to this question. And if you do, Rodney Harrison would apparently like a word.
The former patriot of New England praised the former caller of the Indianapolis Colts, formerly Indian Patriot, at the halftime of "Sunday Night Football" .
"Heck, I think he's the best quarterback of the AFC right now … who's surpassing him right now? Tell me who's surpassing him," said Harrison about Brissett, via Doug Kyed, from NESN.com.
If only there was a quarterback in the AFC who led his team to an undefeated record so far. Oh yes? Oh, it's Tom Brady? Interesting.
Now, before everyone panics … no, we have not seen Brady's peak for six games. But with Patrick Mahomes currently knee injured, it's pretty hard to put anyone in front of Brady at this point. Brissett currently has a higher QB rating (101.0) than Brady (97.5). But 1,388 yards for Brissett rank 11th in the AFC.
Yes, Brissett has been impressive taking the reins after Andrew Luck's retirement, but we're not going to crown him in the class of the conference.
