Philadelphia, PA - As painful as it is for fans of the Philadelphia Eagles, the 2022 NFL season and more importantly Super Bowl LVII, are firmly in the rearview mirror. The Pennsylvania-based outfit was the standout team in the entire league last season. They finished the regular season with a record of 13 wins against just three losses, a record that could only be matched by the Kansas City Chiefs.
Jalen Hurts - Philadelphia Eagles
They would then knock off the New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers to seal their first appearance in The Big Game since the 2017 season, where they would meet the aforementioned Chiefs. As we all remember, that particular game ended in heartbreak, despite the herculean efforts of quarterback Jalen Hurts. The 24-year-old former University of Oklahoma standout secured his status as one of the finest quarterbacks in the league with his display at State Farm Stadium back in February, but who else can be considered among the top QBs in the NFL today?
Patrick Mahomes - Kansas City Chiefs
The man who has taken over the mantle from Tom Brady as the greatest quarterback on the planet today is Patrick Mahomes. He almost single-handedly brought the Lombardi to Missouri for the second time in five years, and his exploits have helped his franchise reach dynasty-like status. Prior to the season beginning, he was made the favorite by OddsChecker to secure the regular season MVP award, and he duly delivered, before adding the Super Bowl MVP award to his collection at the culmination of Super Bowl LVII.
Joe Burrow - Cincinnati Bengals
Another quarterback that has risen to the fore in recent years is Joe Burrow. The 26-year-old former Heisman winner led the Bengals to their first post-season victory in 30 years in the 2021 season when they beat the Las Vegas Raiders. He didn’t stop there either, knocking off the Tennessee Titans and the Chiefs to reach their first Super Bowl in 33 years. That particular trip to the championship game would end in heartbreak but he continued in the same vain in 2022.
Burrow was crucial to the Bengals topping the AFC North for the second consecutive season. He would then help his side to a narrow victory over the Baltimore Ravens, before a scintillating performance against the heavily favored Buffalo Bills secured the Ohio-based side a spot in the Conference Championships for the second consecutive season. On this occasion the Chiefs would have their revenge, but Burrow solidified himself as one of the leagues finest quarterbacks, and his mastery may well continue for years to come.
