Ben Roethlisberger has largely been a passenger for the Pittsburgh Steelers this season, but he flashed vintage form against the Cincinnati Bengals.
In the 2020 FanSided NFL quarterback rankings — which go live here every Tuesday morning throughout the regular season — we use a weighted average of current and past performances, with the former meaning more than the latter.
Here we go…
QB New York Jets
2020 stats: 659 yards | 56.7 completion % | 4 TDs | 2 INTs | 6.3 YPA | 66.7 QBR
Last Week: 31
Flacco is getting another start this week with Sam Darnold on the mend. He was better two weeks ago against the Patriots, but the start was largely ruined by a hideous fourth-quarter interception.
QB Dallas Cowboys
2020 stats: 243 yards | 55.3 completion % | 1 TDs | 1 INTs | 6.4 YPA | 63.3 QBR
Last Week: 30
Gilbert played reasonably well against the Steelers. Now, he hits the road for a game with the Vikings. Can he play another decent game?
QB Jacksonville Jaguars
2020 stats: 473 yards | 60.3 completion % | 2 TDs | 2 INTs | 6.5 YPA | 59.0 QBR
Last Week: 29
Luton threw one interception against the Packers, but could have legitimately thrown three or four more. The Jaguars gave the rookie a chance because of nice athleticism and a strong arm, but the accuracy is lacking.
QB Denver Broncos
2020 stats: 1,497 yards | 55.0 completion % | 7 TDs | 10 INTs | 6.3 YPA | 36.4 QBR
Last Week: 27
The Broncos should give Lock seven more starts and then pull the plug barring a miraculous turnaround. After four interceptions in Las Vegas, there’s no doubt regarding his lack of talent.
QB San Francisco 49ers
2020 stats: 1,390 yards | 67.3 completion % | 6 TDs | 6 INTs | 8.1 YPA | 42.0 QBR
Last Week: 32
Mullens is a middling backup, and he’s currently in over his head. Two more interceptions in New Orleans and without much of an arm, the upside is non-existent.
QB Chicago Bears
2020 stats: 1,852 yards | 65.6 completion % | 10 TDs | 8 INTs | 6.1 YPA | 48.3 QBR
Last Week: 26
Foles is the best of a bad situation in Chicago, but now he’s hurt and unfortunately, his future looks to be in jeopardy. We might be seeing Mitchell Trubisky or Tyler Bray for awhile.
QB Washington Football Team
2020 stats: 752 yards | 68.3 completion % | 1 TDs | 3 INTs | 7.2 YPA | 48.2 QBR
Last Week: 28
Consecutive 300-yard games for Smith to start off his return. In Detroit, he played well, throwing for 390 yards on 55 attempts. Finally, Smith completed 10 passes of more than 10 air yards. Not bad.
QB Philadelphia Eagles
2020 stats: 2,091 yards | 58.2 completion % | 12 TDs | 12 INTs | 6.1 YPA | 50.3 QBR
Last Week: 22
We might be at rock bottom with Wentz. On Sunday, Wentz threw for 123 yards on 27 attempts with a pair of interceptions. In fact, those turnovers were the only attempts over 20+ yards. In short, if the Eagles have any shot to get going, Wentz needs to do a 180.

Democratic norms are being stress-tested all over the world, and the past few years have thrown up all kinds of questions we didn't know needed clarifying – how long is too long for a parliamentary prorogation? How far should politicians be allowed to intervene in court cases? To monitor these issues as closely as we have in the past we need your support, so please consider donating to The Climax News Room.
