5 QBs to Watch Out for in Week 5

With the NFL in full swing as we enter Week 5, we can already see the players that will define this season’s results. As such, here is a look at the biggest playmakers who could make a difference this week. 

Cardinals – Kyler Murray

Game – Arizona Cardinals vs San Francisco 49ers Date/Time – Sunday, 10 October, 16:25 EDT Stadium – Levi’s Stadium Kyler Murray has gotten off to a flying start this season. The Arizona Cardinals are an impressive 4-0, being one of two teams in the league to maintain an unbeaten start. Murray has been putting together great numbers, reaching 1287 passing yards and 9 passing touchdowns so far. He has the 3rd highest passing yards of any QB and 5th most passing touchdowns. But what makes Murray different from other quarterbacks in the league is his rushing ability. He has added another 3 touchdowns rushing and has 109 yards. The 2019 1st Draft pick is now showing his winning mentality, and as NBC Sports reports, “his gravity as a rusher” is enhancing the team’s offense as well as his passing. The Cardinals play the San Francisco 49ers in an NFC West matchup. Currently, per FOX Sports, the Cardinals are favorites, with the Moneyline at -250 in their favor. On points spread, the Cardinals are again favored at -5.5 and given Murray’s form this season, you wouldn’t bet against him.

49ers – Trey Lance or Jimmy Garoppolo?

Game – Arizona Cardinals vs San Fransisco 49ers Date/Time – Sunday, 10 October, 16:25 EDT Stadium – Levi’s Stadium This week’s interest at Levi’s Stadium will not be limited to just anticipation of the NFC West matchup with the Cardinals but also on who will start for the 49ers. From the start of this season Head Coach, Kyle Shanahan has been adamant that Jimmy Garropulo will be the team’s starting QB this season, despite drafting talented Trey Lance at 3rd pick this year. And so it has been; through Weeks 1 to 3, Garropulo put together 760 passing yards and 4 passing touchdowns.  As has happened so often in recent seasons, something Garropulo himself is “tired” of; in the Week 4 game against the Seattle Seahawks, he had to come off injured, meaning Trey Lance took to the field. Lance passed for 157 yards and 2 touchdowns in the 28-21 loss to the Seahawks. Fans were excited to see their new prospect in action.  As reported by USA Today, Garropulo was expected to spend some time on the sidelines. However, more recent reports by DraftKings say Garropulo could be fit in time for the game. With fans looking to the future and Garropulo’s shaky injury history, many feel now is the time to blood the rookie in the same way the Jacksonville Jaguars and New York Jets have introduced Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson.  Many will be tuning in to the game to see if Kyle Shanahan keeps to his preseason promise and Garropulo starts if he can recover in time or if we will see the start of the Trey Lance era in San Francisco. 

Bills – Josh Allen

Game – Kansas City Chiefs vs Buffalo Bills Date/Time – Sunday, 10 Oct. 20:30 EDT Stadium – Highmark Stadium Following the Week 1 20-10 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, experts asked questions of the Buffalo Bills and Josh Allen’s offense. Since then, the Bills have turned their record around to 3-1, scoring an “average of 39.1 points per game” as per The Game Day. At the moment, the Bills are one of the best offenses in the league, but Josh Allen is only 14th in passing yards with 1055 yards, although he does have 9 Touchdown passes.  In addition, those wins have come against the Miami Dolphins, the Washington Football Team, and the Houston Texans. Not exactly staunch competition for a team that went to the AFC Championship game last season. This brings us to the Week 5 fixture against the Kansas City Chiefs, who defeated the Bills in the Championship game mentioned above. Many fans will be observing to see if Allen can drive this offense against high-caliber opposition or whether their more straightforward fixture list has flattered the Bills. The Bills sit at +220 on the Moneyline with FOX Sports as narrow underdogs, but the +2.5 point spread against them shows how tight many experts feel this game will be. 

Chiefs – Patrick Mahomes

Game – Kansas City Chiefs vs Buffalo Bills Date/Time – Sunday, 10 Oct. 20:30 EDT Stadium – Highmark Stadium Patrick Mahomes comes into every season with great expectations on his back. Following his ascension to starting QB for the Chiefs in 2018 and winning the NFL MVP award in the same year, Mahomes’ achievements alongside those of the Chiefs have raised the bar season upon season. In this light, the start of this season has been a disappointment for many. The Chiefs sit at the bottom of the AFC West with a 2-2 record, which very few experts would have predicted at the start of the season. This doesn’t mean Mahomes is playing poorly. Mahomes has the 5th most passing yards in the league with 1218 yards and the most passing touchdowns with 14, and he hasn’t dropped below 250 yards of passing offense in a single game this season. But the losses to the Los Angeles Chargers and the Baltimore Ravens will sting Mahomes and Chiefs fans alike as these are teams viewed as Divisional challengers (Or, in the case of the Chargers AFC West challengers). If the Chiefs are to emulate their success in recent seasons, they need to illustrate their proficiency against teams they may face in the playoffs. The game against the Bills proves the perfect chance for that. Mahomes will be chomping at the bit to impress in the replay of the 2020 AFC Championship game, and his Head Coach Andy Reid will be hoping for a masterclass from his QB to get the team onto a winning record for the first time since Week 1.

Rams – Matthew Stafford 

Game –  Seattle Seahawks vs LA Rams Date/Time – Thursday, 7 Oct. 20:30 EDT Stadium – SoFi Stadium Everything was going perfectly for Matthew Stafford at the Los Angeles Rams. Following his summer move from the Detroit Lions, the Rams were 3-0 coming into Week 4. With star power like Aaron Donald in defense and coming off the back of an impressive win against reigning Super Bowl Champions, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the mood at the SoFi Stadium was incredibly positive. Until Kyler Murray and the Cardinals put a stop to the Rams’ winning run. This week against the Seahawks, they have the job of bouncing back against one of the most consistent QBs in the league Russell Wilson.  Stafford has performed well this season, 4th most passing yards with 1222 yards, the 2nd most passing touchdowns with 11, but his average completion rate in games the Rams have lost has been 63.35%, and Rams fans will be hoping for signs of improvement in games the team struggles. Stafford was traded in to replace Jared Goff as a man who could elevate this team to be challenging for the AFC Championship and the Super Bowl, and so in a challenging game against the Seahawks, fans will be looking for signs he can lift this offense when the team is struggling.  The Rams are narrow favorites to win the game per FOX Sports, with the Moneyline at -115 in their favor. The point spread favors them at only -2.5, and if the contest is as tough as oddsmakers expect, then Rams fans will be hoping to see Stafford leading this team through his great passing to victory.
