Number three in the Rookie QB power rankings:
Trevor Lawrence may be guiding a winless team, but that’s not just to say he hasn’t been blown out of the water each and every game. Much like Wilson, the struggles are easily seen and it’s more of a question is this team not succeeding because of Urban Meyer being a complete distraction? Or is the personnel just not good enough?
Lawrence had the Jaguars competing with the Titans in the first half of this one. Midway through the second quarter, the Jaguars were only down by one point. Halftime adjustments were made by Tennessee, and they proceeded to open up the game.
Lawrence gets the lowly Dolphins in the London game this Sunday. Miami let Indianapolis get their first win on them, does Lawrence do the same?
Number two in the Rookie QB power rankings:
Tom Brady’s heir to the throne has done a pretty good job to start his career in New England. Jones has thrown for at least 200 yards in every game except one this season, and he also had the Patriots driving against Brady and nearly led an upset victory on Sunday Night Football two weeks ago.
Jones led a comeback win over the Texans and showed a lot of grit navigating his team downfield to set up the game-winning kick from Nick Folk. It was a 15-play, 84-yard drive that took seven minutes off the clock that daggered the Texans.
The Patriots will need Jones to play well, as their next three opponents are Dallas, New York (Jets), and Los Angeles (Chargers). A good record would be 1-2 against those teams, and going winless would doom the Patriots chances to get a wildcard spot down the road without another team’s help.
