4. Lamar Jackson, Baltimore Ravens
Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens finally agreed to terms on a contract extension and he will be piloting the team next season and beyond. Better yet for Ravens fans, Lamar has more weapons around him with the likes of Zay Flowers and Odell Beckham Jr. now on the team.
There definitely is room to dissect Lamar and the Ravens and how high the team's ceiling is with a running quarterback in the playoffs. That being said, there should be no argument that Lamar and the Ravens are one of the best regular-season teams in the entire sport.
Jackson has a 45-16 record as a starter in the NFL. That does not happen by accident. He is only the fourth-best quarterback the team faces in 2023 but he might just be the hardest to game plan against.
3. Aaron Rodgers, New York Jets
There definitely is an argument to be made that Jackson should rank above of Rodgers on this list. However, Rodgers has won two MVPs since Jackson's one and while there is a threat of regression, we have not seen it happen with the Jets yet.
Is Rodgers still at the height of his powers? Not at all. But can he still be one of the five best quarterbacks in the league with a better supporting cast in New York? Absolutely. It will be interesting to see how Rodgers gels with this Jets team but when it is all said and done, he is still the third-best QB the Chargers will face in 2023.
