Bottom Line

All four of these quarterbacks took a big jump to year two in the NFL and it happened for all of them in Week 2. And of the four, Carr looks to have made the biggest one, showing he can put the team on his back to get a win. And he did so by beating a playoff team from last year, outshooting a Super Bowl winning quarterback.

But unfortunately for Carr, he’s going to have his Raiders on his back, weighing him down a little too much. Bridgewater looks poised to go the furthest as offensive coordinator Norv Turner learned from Week 1 that he must get the ball to Peterson first and go from there. Bortles looks poised to take his Jaguars up the AFC South standings a couple of pegs and Manziel is a wildcard.

He has a good defense over there, the ability to be a playmaker and you just never know what he’s going to do.

This is an exciting class of quarterbacks!
