The fact Burrow enters the postseason with the NFL’s highest passing grade a year removed from destroying his knee in the midst of a so-so rookie campaign is quite impressive.

Herbert is the definition of calm, cool and collected both on and off the field. There’s no panic to his game, and that’s why he leads the NFL with 10 total games with zero turnover-worthy plays this season.

Allen had an unprecedented breakout in 2020. After ranking 29th and 28th in passing grade his first two seasons in the NFL, the former first-round pick posted the sixth-best passing grade of 2020.

Murray is one of the most fun players to watch in the NFL (sorry, PFF Tailgate crew Austin Gayle and Mike Renner). He has posted an 8.1% big-time throw rate for the 2021 regular season — the best in the NFL by 1.7%.

Prescott has grown immensely over the last couple of years under offensive coordinator Kellen Moore. His ability to read defenses and get through his progressions on pure passing concepts has shined in particular.

Lawrence objectively did not produce all that well in his 2021 rookie campaign: The 2021 No. 1 overall pick turned in a 59.6 PFF grade.

Jones’ processing, accuracy and timing stood out when he led Alabama to a national championship in 2020. Those traits have translated to the NFL right away and resulted in high-level play for the rookie.

Jackson is one of the most dangerous quarterbacks in the game thanks to his athleticism: He has totaled 108 explosive runs of 10 or more yards since 2019 — 40 more than any other quarterback in that span.
