Ranking of quarterbacks on their 2022 schedule
While the strength of the schedule based on projected win totals indicates the Tennessee Titans have an intermediate schedule in 2022, we disagree.
Tennessee’s roster is actually very tough, as the Titans will face seven teams that made the playoffs last season in the Buffalo Bills, Las Vegas Raiders, Kansas City Chiefs, Green Bay Packers, Cincinnati Bengals, Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys. All of these teams should be good again.
Worse, the Titans must navigate all of AFC West, which has seen an influx of talent into the division this offseason. The Denver Broncos and Los Angeles Chargers are expected to be improved in 2022.
With a tough schedule comes a tough roster of quarterbacks, and Tennessee is no different. The Titans defense will be challenged regularly throughout the season by some very talented flaggers.
Now let’s take a look at the quarterbacks the Titans will face in 2022, ranked from best to worst.
Lawrence struggled a lot in his first season, but he also had to deal with a lack of blocking and weaponry around him, and Urban Meyer was his head coach. Things should be better for him in 2nd year.
Mills tops Lawrence on this list because he was actually one of the best rookie signallers in 2021. The Texans are still going to be horrible, but Mills at least gives them some hope for a brighter future.
Jones has the arm and the athleticism to be a special quarterback, but turnovers and injuries have been a major issue for him. It also didn’t help that the Giants failed miserably to put him in a position to succeed.
Hurts is a dynamic athlete who will have big weapons around him, but the jury is still out on his ability to give them the ball consistently. If Hurts can become a better passer, watch out for the Eagles in 2022.
After a disastrous end to the 2021 campaign, Wentz is now in Washington, where he will have his last chance to prove he is a franchise quarterback. Wentz has fallen far behind after an impressive start to his career and there’s no sign he’ll bounce back from what we saw last season.
Ryan is the Colts’ latest band-aid at quarterback. He’s coming off a down year and at 37 there are valid questions about what’s left in the tank. His lack of mobility will be a big problem for Indy if the offensive line struggles.
Carr is a better quarterback than people give him credit for, and the addition of Davante Adams will only help him. He could very well break the 5,000 yard mark this season.
Carr and Prescott are comparable in talent, but Prescott has the edge in athleticism. Prescott had a strong year in 2021 despite coming back from a serious injury. It could be even better in 2022.
Burrow, who will arguably launch the best receiving corps. in the NFL, is ready for a monster season in Cincy. He will no doubt be in the conversation for MVP and could top the list for the next few years.
Another potential MVP contender, Herbert is on track to lead this roster down the road after two very impressive seasons to start his career. Now the third-year flagger, who has all the tools of a superstar quarterback, will be looking to ride out the hump and make the playoffs for the first time.
Wilson desperately needed a change of scenery, and not only did he get it, but he joins a team with far more talent than the one he just left. The Broncos should be contenders for Wilson, who remains one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL.
Despite being the back-to-back MVP, Rodgers isn’t at the top of our list, mostly due to the wide receiver’s uncertain situation. Davante Adams’ trade is hurting badly, and Green Bay’s remaining guns are all question marks. However, Rodgers is good enough to make it work.
Allen is poised to be the best quarterback in the NFL. He’s the complete package with a big arm and elite athleticism, and the Bills have done a good job surrounding him with talent. Expectations are high for Allen and Co. heading into 2022, and for good reason.
The 2021 campaign was considered a down year for the Chiefs’ offense, but Mahomes still threw for 4,839 yards, the second-highest total of his career. Losing Tyreek Hill is by no means ideal, but Mahomes, who is the definition of a complete package, still has more than enough to win.
