Ranking The Quarterbacks of the AFC South

Steve Shoup

When it comes to quarterback play, the AFC South is probably the youngest and least-experienced division in football. Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is only 31, and he’s practically in this division, relatively speaking. The AFC South also boasts two exciting rookies and a third-year player who’s making a case that’s he’s the MVP of the league. And the cheapest and easiest way to get out to a game and see these quarterbacks live is through ScoreBig.com!

4.) (Tie) – Blake Bortles & Zack Mettenberger
When looking for Jacksonville Jaguars tickets or Tennessee Titans’ tickets, fans of both teams should be excited about respective rookie quarterbacks Blake Bortles and Zack Mettenberger. They’re both tall, big-armed rookies that have shown the standard duality of both promising talent and sloppy inexperience in their short time thus far in the league. Bortles probably gains the edge because of his pedigree (he was the third overall pick after all), but Mettenberger is no slouch, either; the latter excelled for LSU in the vaunted SEC and was slated for a high draft position of his own before an unfortunate ACL injury plummeted his stock.

2.) Ryan Fitzpatrick
Coming in at #2 is Houston Texans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. Playing in his first year in Houston after pitstops with four franchises elsewhere, the former Harvard field general is an interesting test case for what it means to be a successful NFL QB. He’s certainly better than your average journeyman quarterback, but can you win in the postseason with him as your guy? The Texans are eager to find out.

1.) Andrew Luck
He just turned 25 years young and already Indianapolis Colts ticket buyers know quarterback Andrew Luck is one of the finest QBs in football. He’s the living embodiment of how uniquely valuable the quarterback position is to a football team—the Colts were 2-14 without him, snapped him with the first pick of the draft, and haven’t wavered since. Barring catastrophe, he’s going to dominate the AFC South for another decade to come.
