NFL 3 Stars For Week 8: Quarterback

The Quarterback position is such an important one in the NFL in 2022, as it has been for decades now, and with massive numbers being put up week after week, a good QB can be the different between a juggernaut offence and a struggling team. That was shown all throughout Week 8, as all three of these QB's led their teams to big wins, and if they keep it up, MVP chatter will no doubt include their names.

3. Geno Smith

Stat line: 23/34, 212 yards, 2 Touchdowns, 0 Interceptions, 104 passer rating.

Geno has been one of the biggest surprises during the 2022 NFL season, and while his numbers haven't been spectacular each and every week, they've been consistent, and this week was no different as he led his team to a big win over the New York Giants. He continues to play well under pressure and protect the football, and if he keeps this up, the Seahawks could be a dark horse to make a run in the NFC playoffs in 2022. 

2. Tua Tagovailoa

Stat line: 29/36, 382 yards, 3 Touchdowns, 0 Interceptions, 138.7 passer rating.

The Dolphins took a big risk when they added Tyreek Hill this off-season, and many criticized the move along with Tua Tagovailoa's arm strength, but through 8 weeks, they've proven to both be great players to invest in, as the Dolphins have been absolutely rolling with Tua in the lineup. With a new defensive star too, this figures to be an AFC heavyweight for the remainder of 2022, and Week 8's performance was a perfect example of why. 

1. Jalen Hurts

Stat line: 19/28, 285 yards, 4 Touchdowns, 0 Interceptions, 140.6 passer rating. 

The Philadelphia Eagles were seen as a massive NFC favourite heading into the season, and the improvements on the outside were a big reason why, and after 8 weeks, Jalen Hurts is proving he is the Quarterback to lead this team when given the weapons. The Eagles stomped the Steelers in Week 8, and Hurts' abilities were on full show, and if he continues to grow with A.J. Brown, this team could be unstoppable as the year rolls on.
