NFL Playoff QB Grades & Predictions

The NFL Playoffs start today.  I thought it would be interesting to run all the QBs through my system and see how they stacked up.  With the NFL being a quarterback league, it seems only fitting that the team with the sharpest signal caller will dramatically increase their likelihood of hoisting the Lombardi trophy.


  1. Russell Wilson, Seahawks– 108.4
  2. Matt Ryan, Falcons– 105.6
  3. Aaron Rodgers, Packers– 105.4
  4. Colin Kaepernick, 49ers– 103.7  (sample size disclaimer)
  5. RG3, Redskins– 96.8
  6. Christian Ponder, Vikings– 79.3

NFC playoffs 2013


  1. Tom Brady, Patriots– 99.7
  2. Peyton Manning, Broncos– 95.8
  3. Joe Flacco, Ravens– 91.5
  4. Andy Dalton, Bengals– 83.6
  5. Matt Schaub, Texans– 80.2
  6. Andrew Luck, Colts– 78.8

AFC playoffs 2013

Note that this picks weren’t entirely made on QB play, but rather by looking at the matchups through a couple different methods that I find to be worthwhile.

Patriots v. Packers in the playoffs.  I’ll take the Packers.
