Week 3: Quarterbacks

breesDrew Brees, Tony Romo and Jay Cutler all suffered injuries.  But it could be a deep quarterback position week 3.

1. Tom Brady

2. Aaron Rodgers

3. Ben Roethlisberger

4. Russell Wilson

5. Andrew Luck

Brady and the Patriots offense is running at a high level. I don’t see any reason that will stop at home against Jacksonville.  Aaron Rodgers plays another prime time game Monday against the Chiefs.  Last we saw, Sanders and Thomas were heavily involved in beating KC last Thursday.  Roethlisberger gets Bell back in the mix in St. Louis and should be in for another big day passing.  Wilson and the 0-2 Seahawks welcome the Bears to town for the home opener.  Chicago is giving up a league worst 39.5 points per game.  Luck and the offense have to rebound after a Monday night home loss.  A division game in Tennessee could be just what they need.

6. Cam Newton

7. Carson Palmer

8. Matt Ryan

9. Peyton Manning

10. Philip Rivers

Newton at home against a weak Saints team who lost there QB.  The defense should have Newton in position to be able to score a lot.  Carson Palmer and the Cardinals receivers have been tough to defend.  San Francisco is coming in after an embarrassing loss on the road in Pittsburgh. How will Dallas be without Romo?  If the offense stalls out, it could mean a lot of time on the field for Ryan.  Dallas has limited quarterbacks to 409 yards passing in the first two weeks. Rivers has thrown for 645 yards & 4 touchdowns.  He’s a good play again against a middle of the road Vikings defense in the passing game.  Peyton Manning heads to Detroit who’s given up a lot of yardage this season.  It wont be pretty, but solid points at the end of the day.

11. Joe Flacco

12. Andy Dalton

13. Blake Bortles

14 Matt Stafford

15. Marcus Mariota

Denver has arguably the best cornerback duo in the league.  Stafford will need the running game to get going at home to free up the passing game a little. Second year Ebron has been involved in both games this season.  Joe Flacco found new weapon Crockett Gillmore.  His success helps diversify the offense and give Flacco another option.  New England has given up a ton of yardage and points.  Jacksonville will most likely be playing from behind and passing a lot. Dalton has made good use of Tyler Eifert.  Bengals have a good group of offensive weapons.  Marcus Mariota took a step back in week 2.  It was a salvageable week after a huge debut.  Mariota and Tennessee head home for the opener against the Colts.
