Bean: Ranking the NFL's 32 starting QBs ahead of Week 9 originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
While Russell Wilson leapt to the forefront of the NFL MVP race right at the start of the season, the Seahawks QB has some tough competition from other quarterbacks around the league.
There's Patrick Mahomes, the 2018 MVP, who has an astounding 21-to-1 touchdown to interception ratio this season.
There's two-time MVP Aaron Rodgers, whose 20-to-2 ratio is similarly impressive.
How about Tom Brady? The 3-time MVP could become the oldest-ever winner of the award, as he's on pace to throw the second-most touchdowns of his legendary career -- and doing so at age 43.
Want more of a dark horse? Try Ben Roethlisberger, the likely front-runner for Comeback Player of the Year, whose candidacy is boosted by the Steelers' perfect 7-0 record.
But who is the best of the best entering Week 9? DJ Bean sorts it out in his weekly QB Power Rankings.
