These three quarterbacks put on bankable performances in Week 2 of the 2022 NFL season.
The NFL has entered the second week of the 2022 season. Last week saw some exciting endgames, thanks in part to solid performances from quarterbacks starting under center. The same could be said in Week 2 when Tua Tagovailoa and Joe Flacco led the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets to comeback victories, respectively.
But that aside, there were some ugly performances on the second weekend of the season. So much so that there has been some debate as to which three quarterbacks deserve the honor they don’t want — being bench-worthy.
Here are three quarterbacks who played like they should be benched after Week 2.
3. Baker Mayfield, Panthers
If you are looking for an attacking game then the New York Giants-Carolina Panthers competition is not for you. It was an ugly quarterback battle between Daniel Jones and Baker Mayfield, but it was Jones and the Giants that won 19-16.
Mayfield showed lightning in the second half of Carolina’s home opener against the Cleveland Browns, but a major problem was his passes being slammed by defenders. The same thing happened when I faced the Giants.
That day, Mayfield completed just 14 of 29 passes for 145 yards and a touchdown. Meanwhile, Jones completed 22 of 34 pass attempts for 176 yards and a touchdown. Let’s face it, whoever lost that game would get credit. Even with the win, Jones didn’t play well.
The Panthers will look for their first win of the season next week when they take on the New Orleans Saints. Given the many problems the Saints defense has caused Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, it could be a long day for Mayfield and the Panthers offense.
