No. 1: Tom Brady
Brady has proven on multiple occasions that as long as he’s still a quarterback in the NFL, he’s going to be the best in the league (even at the age of 44). Especially when you look at the NFC South, he’s by far the top quarterback. He led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to the Super Bowl in his first season with the team, which is one of the most classic Brady moves of all time.
He has a 67.3 completion percentage and has 2,650 yards in eight games. He’s thrown for 25 touchdowns (10 more than Ryan) and five interceptions. His rating is 108.6, which is why he’s the top quarterback in the league entering Week 10.
Brady’s greatest game so far this season happened in Week 5 against Miami whenever he completed 30-of-41 passes for 411 yards and five touchdowns. That performance marked the second time this year that he’s thrown for five touchdowns. He has his bad games, though not frequently, and he holds himself to a high standard. Perhaps that’s why he’s a seven-time Super Bowl champion.
Tampa Bay is coming off of a bye week and will take on the battered Washington Football Team, which should be a prime opportunity for the Buccaneers’ offense. Brady has only suffered two losses this year, one being in their last game in Week 8 against New Orleans, so it’s officially go-time as the second half of the season commences.
