It’s been an exciting three weeks of NFL action so far–and while it’s only been three weeks, some players are already starting to separate themselves from the rest. And while the quarterback is not the only player on the field, it’s hard to talk football without mentioning the QB, so that’s what this whole story is going to be about.

I’ll be power-ranking each NFL QB through week three, with a bit of reasoning attached to those in the top 10. If you want to bet on any of these athletes in week four, you can do so through any of these New Jersey Online Casinos

1. Lamar Jackson, Baltimore Ravens

Lamar Jackson has been dominating week in and week out so far this season, totaling 749 yards through the air and 243 on the ground through his first three games. Jackson’s 10 passing TDs are enough to lead the league, and his 2 rushing TDs rank sixth among all offensive players in the NFL. Jackson’s contract is up at the end of this season, and boy is he playing like it. Barring any injuries, we’re looking at our MVP.

2. Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills

Through his first three games, Allen already has over 1000 yards passing. While the Bills lost a disappointing week three matchup against the Dolphins, Allen still balled out, passing for 400 yards and two TDs (albeit on 83 attempts). We’re seeing less rushing out of Allen this season, which is probably better for his longevity. If Allen stays at this pace, we could be witnessing a record-setting season from the Buffalo Bill.

3. Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs

Mahomes had a tough outing in week three, but if you’ve been following my Super Bowl predictions you know I love this Chiefs team, so I can let it slide. It also helps that a “rough week” for Mahomes still includes 250+ yards passing and a TD. I wouldn’t put too much weight on their week three loss to the Colts.

4. Jalen Hurts, Philadelphia Eagles

This Eagles team is pretty crazy, huh? And at the epicenter of it all is none other than Jalen Hurts, who has led to Birds to three-straight weeks of scoring 28+ points in the first half alone. Hurts has 916 yards through the air so far this season, with 167 rushing yards as well. The Eagles’ week four matchup against the Commanders is incredibly favorable for the young QB, so you can expect to see Hurts rise a bit come next week's list.

5. Kyler Murray, Arizona Cardinals

As a fellow short person, I’ve always been a fan of Myler Murray. And while the Cardinals lost in week three, it wasn’t Murray’s fault in the slightest. Murray’s receivers dropped at least 10 catchable balls in the Cardinals' loss to the Rams, and Murray still managed to throw for 314 yards. He’s only got three touchdowns so far on the year, but I expect that number to increase as he and Marquise Brown become more familiar with one another.

6. Justin Herbert, Los Angeles Chargers

We can chalk up Herbert’s lackluster performance in week three to this lingering rib injury we’ve been hearing all about for the past week. Herbert started out the season on fire, tossing three TDs in each of the Chargers' first two games. He rounded out week three with 297 passing yards, a TD, and an interception. Hopefully, this rib injury that Herbert sustained in week two doesn’t linger, and he’s able to return to form in his week four matchup against the Texans.

7. Joe Burrow, Cincinnati Bengals

It took Joe Cool a bit to warm up, but it seems like he’s back in the swing of things. He had a great game against the Jets in week three–and before you say “Of course he did, it’s the Jets,” I’m going to remind you that the Jets' secondary actually isn’t terrible. Burrow now has six TDs on the season and 812 yards and has a tough matchup against the Dolphins coming up on Thursday Night. 

8. Tua Tagovailoa, Miami Dolphins

All members of Tua-non, please stand up. A lot of Tua’s stats this season are being carried by his six-touchdown performance in week two, but as long as the Dolphins keep winning games there’s not much I can say about it. 

9. Derek Carr, Las Vegas Raiders

Derek Carr has thrown exactly two touchdowns in each of the Raiders’ games so far this season, and that’s enough to squeeze you in my top 10. I think Carr will take some more time to heat up, but will close out the season as a top-5 QB.

10. Trevor Lawrence, Jacksonville Jaguars 

If you haven’t been paying attention to Trevor Lawrence, you may want to start now. He’s improved his game every week so far this season and is coming off of a 262-yard, 2 TD performance against the Chargers in week three. Oh, yeah, I forgot–the Jaguars are also 2-1 so far this season, which is their best start since 2018.

11. Jared Goff, Detroit Lions

12. Kirk Cousins, Minnesota Vikings

13. Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers

14. Jacoby Brissett, Cleveland Browns

15. Ryan Tannehill, Tennessee Titans

16. Geno Smith, Seattle Seahawks

17. Tom Brady, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

18. Baker Mayfield, Carolina Panthers

19.  Carson Wentz, Washington Commanders

20.  Russell Wilson, Denver Broncos

21. Matthew Stafford, Los Angeles Rams

22. Joe Flacco, New York Jets

23. Mitch Trubisky, Pittsburgh Steelers

24. Jameis Winston, New Orleans Saints

25. Marcus Mariota, Atlanta Falcons

26. Daniel Jones, New York Giants

27. Jimmy Garoppolo, San Francisco 49ers

28. Davis Mills, Houston Texans

29. Matt Ryan, Indianapolis Colts

30. Justin Fields, Chicago Bears

31. Mac Jones, New England Patriots 

32. Cooper Rush, Dallas Cowboys
