Week 7 of the NFL season is upon us, so let’s take a look at the top seven quarterbacks through six weeks of the regular season. Play around the league seems a little down this year, potentially due to the lack of preseason action for most starters and the way teams practice nowadays. My top 7 Quarterback list has fluctuated throughout the season, but no more than it has this past weekend.
1. Tua Tagovailoa
Tua is once again the number one QB in my rankings, the Dolphins fell into a quick 14-0 hole to the Carolina Panthers, but Tua and the offense quickly got them back into the game. Tua ended the day 21-31 for 262 yards and 3 touchdowns to 3 different receivers. Tua also has a league high 1,876 passing yards on the season.
I’ve mentioned it every week, but it’s worth noting again that Tua shouldn’t be criticized for playing well in his system and with the weapons around him. He continues to prove he’s the leader of their offense and as he goes, the Dolphins go. Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle certainly make his job a lot easier, but Tua has been stellar this season and shows his worth every week.
2. Josh Allen
Josh Allen and Patrick Mahomes could both be #2 or #3 in my rankings this week as both didn’t play their best this weekend but managed to get the win. Allen and the Bills survived a 14-9 nail biter against the New York Giants, who had a chance to win the game on the 1-yard line, but couldn’t convert as time expired.
Allen was by no means his normal elite QB this weekend, but he still managed to throw for two touchdowns and do just enough to get the win. I’d like to see Allen and the Bills offense get back on track next week, but Allen has done enough this season to hold onto the #2 spot until then, especially with Mahomes struggling this week as well.
