Which quarterback would you prefer leading your team in the postseason?
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger’s one-and-done exit from the playoffs leaves a huge gap between the remaining playoff quarterbacks in the AFC. The field is pretty much Brady, who has three rings, and everyone else.
Tebow, Flacco and Yates have all been inconsistent this season. Brady is the only Pro Bowler of the group and proven commodity who has played well deep into the playoffs.
Here is our ranking of the four remaining AFC playoff quarterbacks:
1. Tom Brady, Patriots
2. Joe Flacco, Ravens
3. Tim Tebow, Broncos
4. T.J. Yates, Texans
Yeah, but the Uggs-wearer has the worst defense in the AFC behind him. I think that levels the playing field a bit.
