There is another surefire Hall of Fame matchup, but don’t forget the young guns.
There are several more quarterback matchups to watch in Week 3 of the NFL season. It’s a storyline galore as surefire Hall of Famers face off against recent first-round picks.
5. Mac Jones vs. Lamar Jackson
Although Jones ranks 25th in QBR (32.0), he ranks 12th in yards per pass attempt (7.2). Lamar Jackson is the real reason this game ranks so high. Ravens QB is playing at or above MVP level and carrying this injured offense alone once again. It will be interesting to see how he handles a Bill Belichick defense.
4. Matthew Stafford vs. Kyler Murray
We can’t promise a turnover-free game, but just about anything can happen when these two quarterbacks are on the field. Are there no-look passes? Yes, sure. Is it possible to cover 80 yards on a two-point conversion? I see what you mean. What about interceptions into triple coverage? Say it and it will be done.
3. Josh Allen vs. Tua Tagovailoa
During the first two weeks of the season, how many people would have predicted Tua would lead the NFL in passing? With a receiving corps to match Alabama’s ridiculous recruiting classes, he’s finally fulfilling his college potential. No matter whether Allen’s breakout is real or not, his MVP buzz is undeniable.
2. Trevor Lawrence vs. Justin Herbert
Maybe we will look back on this game in a few years and see the beginning of a great rivalry. Even though they aren’t as mobile as some others on this list, they are both excellent passers. There is only one thing holding this game back: Herbert may not be 100 percent after breaking his rib cartilage last week.
1. Aaron Rodgers vs. Tom Brady
Enjoy every Rodgers-Brady matchup because it may be the last. There have only been four previous meetings between them. Even though both receiving corps are depleted, especially since Mike Evans faces a one-game suspension for his role in a Week 2 brawl, these quarterbacks make a five-star lemon chiffon cake.
