Who doesn’t love an NFL quarterbacks debate?

The 2019 NFL season is very close as we are now in the middle of the preseason. We have a good idea of who will be quarterbacking every NFL team. I decided to rank every quarterback in their respective division. I also ranked the divisions as a whole based on their NFL quarterback strength.

Best NFL Quarterbacks in each division

NFC North

  1. Aaron Rodgers – Green Bay Packers
  2. Kirk Cousins – Minnesota Vikings
  3. Matthew Stafford – Detroit Lions
  4. Mitchell Trubisky – Chicago Bears

NFC East

  1. Carson Wentz – Philadelphia Eagles
  2. Dak Prescott – Dallas Cowboys
  3. Eli Manning – New York Giants
  4. Coly McCoy/Case Keenum – Washington Redskins

NFC South

  1. Drew Brees – New Orleans Saints
  2. Matt Ryan – Atlanta Falcons
  3. Cam Newton – Carolina Panthers
  4. Jameis Winston – Tampa Bay Buccaneers

NFC West

  1. Russell Wilson – Seattle Seahawks
  2. Jared Goff – Los Angeles Rams
  3. Jimmy Garoppolo – San Fransisco 49ers
  4. Kyler Murray – Arizona Cardinals

AFC North

  1. Ben Roethlisberger – Pittsburgh Steelers
  2. Baker Mayfield – Cleveland Browns
  3. Andy Dalton – Cincinnati Bengals
  4. Lamar Jackson – Baltimore Ravens

AFC East

  1. Tom Brady – New England Patriots
  2. Sam Darnold – New York Jets
  3. Josh Allen – Buffalo Bills
  4. Josh Rosen/Ryan Fitzpatrick – Miami Dolphins

  1. Deshaun Watson – Houston Texans
  2. Nick Foles – Jacksonville Jaguars
  3. Marcus Mariota – Tennessee Titans
  4. Jacoby Brissett – Indianapolis Colts

AFC West

  1. Patrick Mahomes – Kansas City Chiefs
  2. Phillip Rivers – Los Angeles Chargers
  3. Derek Carr – Oakland Raiders
  4. Joe Flacco – Denver Broncos

Best divisions ranked by NFL Quarterbacks

  1. NFC South
  2. AFC West
  3. NFC North
  4. NFC West
  5. AFC North
  6. NFC East
  7. AFC East
  8. AFC South

The NFC North is stacked with excellent NFL quarterbacks. My rankings have Cam Newton as the 3rd best quarterback in the division. Newton could easily be the second-best and that would make Matt Ryan the 3rd best. Any division that has either of those two guys 3rd clearly has the most talent.

On the flip side, the AFC East is terrible. It has Tom Brady, the greatest of all-time and a bunch of young unproven talent including 3 QB’s from who were selected top-ten during the 2018 NFL draft. You would think it would be hard to rank a position group second to last that has the G.O.A.T. in it. Well, this was an easy decision.

After the retiring of Andrew Luck, The AFC South is easily the worst group of the bunch.
