2023 NFL Season: Ranking the 32 starting quarterbacks
No. 12 – No. 8
12. Jared Goff, Detroit Lions
I was very shocked to see Jared Goff play the way he did in 2022. Lions’ offensive coordinator Ben Johnson was able to unleash the Detroit offense, and I think they’ll play even better in 2023. Goff seems to have found his second home in the NFL and I think they should lock him up for the long-term.
11. Kirk Cousins, Minnesota Vikings
Very few QBs in the NFL over the last decade have been as consistent as Kirk Cousins. He’s one of the most efficient passers in the game and had a down statistical year in 2022, but managed to help lead his team to 13 wins and a playoff berth.
10. Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys
I do not think the Dak Prescott we saw in the 2022 season is who Dak Prescott truly is. The 2023 NFL season will be very telling for Prescott and his future as a Dallas Cowboy. If Dallas yet again fails to make much noise in the playoffs, wouldn’t the team have to consider moving on from him?
I personally wouldn’t, because there aren’t many QBs in the NFL better than Prescott.
9. Deshaun Watson, Cleveland Browns
Deshaun Watson is an elite talent at the QB spot and looked every bit of rusty during his time with the Browns in 2022. I trust that Watson will return to his normal, elite self in 2023, with a full offseason immersed with the coaching staff and his teammates. That year off of football, I think, really hurt him in 2022.
8. Lamar Jackson, Baltimore Ravens
One of the highest paid players in the history of the NFL is Lamar Jackson, who finally found common ground with the Ravens this offseason with the contract extension. Jackson is already the best dual-threat QB in NFL history, but can he stay healthy for a full season? If so, this Ravens’ team can be deadly
