Who were the quarterbacks that were light, and who were shadows, during the eleventh day of the new NFL season?
The week 11 of the regular season was very hard in the field of job security for some of the quarterbacks who have suffered the most throughout the regular season of the NFL.
Three quarterbacks have been benched following Game 11 activity, and there’s no guarantee all three can reclaim the starting job before the end of the year.
On the bright side, there was one quarterback who broke the 90-point barrier in Total QBR, and none fell into the single-digit quagmire in the ESPN Stats & Information metric.
Without further ado, we present the top five and top five quarterbacks in the most recent round of regular season action in the league. NFLfollowing our usual alphabetical order.
CINCO QUARTERBACKS ALZA
From the ground to the sky in one week, Dalton practically got off the canvas to stay in contention for his job in New Orleans. Last weekend, he connected on 21 of his 25 passes for 260 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions, ranking fourth with a mere 8.3 percent incompletion rate and third with an average of 10.40 yards per attempt. happens. His 84.0 percent completion rate was the third-best rate for the day, and his passing production was the 10th-best in the league, which are very good numbers to go along with an 84.7 Total QBR that was second-highest for the league. eleventh date.
Jimmy G will never forget his night at the Azteca Stadium. The Niners quarterback tied a career high with four touchdown passes and no interceptions as part of a “Monday Night Football” outing that went 20-for-29 for 228 yards in a sack-free game. . His 77.3 was the sixth-best Total QBR in Week 11, in San Francisco’s blowout of Arizona on Mexican soil.
The fatigue of the voters who do not opt for Mahomes for the Most Valuable Player award does not appear here, where we recognize him for this Week 11 another of his great outings. He completed 20 of 34 pass attempts for 329 yards with three touchdowns, all to Travis Kelce, and a Total QBR of 78.6 which was the fourth highest in the league. He ranked fourth in passing production with those 329 yards, and also fourth with 9.68 yards per pass attempt. His four carries for 23 yards were also key in a last-minute comeback win over the Chargers.
No one enjoyed a better performance at the most important position in the game than Prescott, the only quarterback to break the 90-point Total QBR barrier, posting a 93.2 against the Vikes. He completed 22 of 25 passes for 276 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions, adding 16 yards on three carries. His 88.0 percent completion rate was the highest on the day, and he posted the second-best mark in average yards per pass attempt at 11.04. In addition, he did not suffer a capture in the whole afternoon.
On Lambeau’s icy tundra, Tannehill had one of his best displays of the season going 22-of-27 for 333 yards with two touchdowns and an interception last Thursday night. His 81.5 percent completion rate was the fourth-highest of the day, despite the weather conditions, and he had the third-highest passing yardage production. To top it off, he led the entire league with a spectacular 12.33 average yards per pass attempt.
FIVE QUARTERBACKS DOWN
No, it wasn’t a prime-time game, but Cousins suffered severely, going down seven sacks and just 12-of-23 completions for 105 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions, but one lost fumble. His 52.2 percent completion rate, 4.57 yards per pass attempt average, and 105 yards passing put him next to last — in all three categories — in the NFL, the same place he ranked in the Total metric. QBR, with a 14.9.
The divisional matchup between the Jets and Patriots in Foxborough last weekend wasn’t exactly a masterpiece of how to play from the pocket. Jones connected on 23 of 27 passing attempts for 246 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions and was sacked six times in an outing that netted him a 20.4 Total QBR, fourth-worst among qualifying quarterbacks.
Since Tuesday it was announced that Mayfield was returning to the bench in Carolina, now to observe from afar Sam Darnold at the controls. A 20.3 in Total QBR ranked him third from last in the NFL, thanks in part to his completing 21 of 33 passes for 196 yards and no touchdowns against two interceptions that ended up killing the Panthers. His 5.94 yards per pass attempt average was fifth lowest in the league and he suffered four sacks in what may have been his last chance at the helm of Carolina.
The Texans quarterback was one of two starters benched Wednesday in their respective organizations after Week 11 games. Mills connected on just 19 of his 33 passing attempts for 169 yards with zero touchdowns. against two interceptions, one returned for a touchdown, to which were added his five sacks against. He was the 25th passer out of 28 qualifiers in completion rate, at 57.6 percent, and his 169 passing yards for the game are nothing to brag about. The second-from-last average in yards passing in the league was his 5.12, and he was also third-from-last with 25.0 percent of his passes being inaccurate passes. His 11.7 Total QBR ranked last among all qualifying quarterbacks for the weekend.
The other quarterback who lost his starting job Wednesday after the weekend, Wilson will be replaced in New York by Mike White. What is worse, is that not even the bank will leave, with Joe Flacco serving as a substitute for the next match. Wilson was 9-of-22 passing attempts for 77 yards against the Patriots, with no touchdowns or interceptions, and was sacked four times. His Total QBR of 24.5 was the fifth-lowest of the day, thanks in part to the fact that he completed the lowest pass rate in the entire league at just 40.9 percent, and that no other starting quarterback had fewer passing yards than he did. His paltry 3.50 yards per pass attempt was also the lowest average in the entire NFL, and that was accompanied by a 30 percent inaccuracy rate, the worst ever. Basically, an exit for oblivion.
