10. Matthew Stafford (Los Angeles Rams)

• Cumulative ranking: 9.33
• Highest ranking: 8
• Lowest ranking: 11

Our second of four quarterbacks playing football this weekend, Matthew Stafford finally got the opportunity to step out of the shadows of the lowly Lions when he was traded to the Los Angeles Rams this offseason.

There was a time this year that Stafford looked like a legitimate MVP favorite. The former No. 1 overall pick finished with a career-high 41 touchdowns and threw for 4,886 yards, although he did lead the league with 17 interceptions.

Stafford was a highly productive, albeit volatile quarterback in 2021. Now one game away from the Super Bowl, Stafford is looking to further cement his legacy with a win this weekend.

9. Lamar Jackson (Baltimore Ravens)

• Cumulative ranking: 9.17
• Highest ranking: 6
• Lowest ranking: 11

Lamar Jackson's 2021 season was a tale of two halves. Over his first six starts, Jackson looked like a legitimate MVP candidate with his historic Week 5 performance against the Indianapolis Colts serving as likely the best game of his career.

Jackson looked significantly improved as a passer as he was forced to rely on his arm more with injuries to the Ravens' entire running back group. Unfortunately, it quickly fell apart for the former MVP.

Jackson was a mess in the second half of the season playing the worst football of his career before a knee injury cut his campaign short. He finished with 16 touchdowns and 13 interceptions as turnovers proved to be a big issue late in the year.

The Ravens will hope to see a bounce-back season from Jackson in 2022, especially with a contract extension looming. Still, despite his struggles, he managed to land in the top-10 on our list.
