1. Buffalo Bills

  • Josh Allen
  • Kyle Allen
  • Matt Barkley

There really shouldn't be any debating this one. At worst, Josh Allen is a top-three quarterback in the NFL. Though the Buffalo Bills have fallen short of a Super Bowl appearance in recent years, it isn't due to Allen's shortcomings.

The former Wyoming star has blossomed into one of the most talented and gifted quarterbacks the NFL has probably ever seen. Allen has thrown for 35 or more touchdowns in each of the last three seasons to go along with 38 career rushing scores in just five years.

He's a two-time Pro Bowler, a multi-time MVP finalist, and one of the most dominant players at any position in the NFL. You can't put together a top-five quarterback list without Allen.

Allen's turnover issues are real — he's thrown 29 interceptions and fumbled 21 times over the last two seasons. But there's no denying his natural talent and overall impact on the field. Allen is the Buffalo Bills.

Behind him, the Bills also have a pair of capable NFL backups. Kyle Allen has performed alright as a spot starter in the past and even served as the Carolina Panthers' primary starter in 2019. He's a perfectly fine backup.

Matt Barkley is another reliable veteran backup who is going on his sixth season in Buffalo. The Bills have continuity, experience, and talent. They have the best quarterback room in the AFC East.
