What’s at stake + NFL QB Power Rankings
14. Alex Smith – Washington Football Team
Nothing. Already comeback story of the year. Incredible achievement. Just not that good anymore.
- John Wolford – Los Angeles Rams
Shouldn’t really be starting anyways. Maybe it’s Goff. Nothing really at stake here. But if he wins a playoff game many will question whether Goff is worth the money or not.
- Mitchell Trubisky – Chicago Bears
Future at stake here. If Mitchell Trubisky can win a road playoff game many are going to wonder if he’s worth sticking around or if he looks absolutely awful many will call for his job.
- Phil Rivers – Indianapolis Colts
Another year, or is it time to call it quits. We’ve seen two sides of Phil Rivers this season. A side that looks good and a side that looks awful.
- Baker Mayfield – Cleveland Browns
If Baker wins a playoff game many will call for a new contract worth a lot of money when he’s due for a new contract. Plus, beating the rival Steelers? It would be huge day for Browns fans.
- Drew Brees – New Orleans Saints
A lot of first round exits for Brees in his career. Weird game, this could be the end of his career.
- Lamar Jackson – Baltimore Ravens
Most at stake here. Two years of 1 and done in playoffs Lamar Jackson has to prove he’s worth a huge extension and that he can actually win the big game.
— Baltimore Ravens (@Ravens) January 6, 2021
- Ryan Tannehill – Tennessee Titans
Not much at stake here. I had him slightly above Lamar in playoff QB rankings because we’ve seen him win two playoff games an we saw him beat Lamar last season head to head.
- Big Ben – Pittsburgh Steelers
Only reason he’s here is Super Bowls. But another guy who we can really find out what the future of the franchise looks like by his performance. Is it time to rebuild or are we looking more runs with Big Ben.
- Josh Allen – Buffalo Bills
Josh Allen getting his first playoff win and looking good is big for the Bills if they want to win a Super Bowl whether it is this year or next year or during this Josh Allen window.

- Tom Brady – Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Becoming not just the GOAT of football but the GOAT of all major professional sports.
- Russell Wilson – Seattle Seahawks
What’s at stake? Him versus Aaron Rodgers and a place among the top 10 QBs of all time.
- Aaron Rodgers – Green Bay Packers
Maybe going to be his best opportunity to win another Super Bowl in his career. That’s huge and would put him in the elite of the elites all time and most likely put him above Brett Favre as the best Packer QB of all time.
- Patrick Mahomes – Kansas City Chiefs
Another player who can really put himself in position to become an all-time great. Weird saying that in his third year as a starter in the NFL. But two Super Bowls in three years as a starter and being only 25 years old. These are big moments for Mahomes.
Highest career playoff grades among this year's playoff QBs:
1. Aaron Rodgers – 90.2
2. Russell Wilson – 84.5
3. Patrick Mahomes – 83.9
4. Drew Brees – 81.9 pic.twitter.com/xxiHiw1hh2
