1. Dak Prescott — Cowboys

The Cowboys and Giants entered Thursday’s Thanksgiving Day game with identical 7-3 records. The Cowboys were coming off a huge 40-3 blowout of the Vikings in Week 11. While Dak Prescott wasn’t perfect, as he threw two costly picks, he did show resiliency, passing for two touchdowns to lead his team to a 28-20 division win.

In the Cowboys’ big Week 11 road win over the Vikings Dak Prescott went 22-25 for 276 yards and two touchdowns. His 88 percent completion was the highest-ever for a Cowboys signal-caller in a game where they attempted at least 15 passes. 

If that version of Prescott is what the Dallas Cowboys will receive they can make a deep playoff run. The former Mississippi State star leads our Black QB rankings this week.

2. Patrick Mahomes — Chiefs

What more can we say about Mahomes? There aren’t enough accolades for what he does weekly on the gridiron. The maestro of the vaunted KC attack passed for 329 yards and three touchdowns in KC’s late win over the division rival San Diego Chargers in Week 11.  The win brought Mahomes’ division road record to 14-0 and 24-3 overall against AFC West opponents.

“Mr Ketchup On Errthang” is the unquestioned MVP leader right now.

3. Jalen Hurts — Eagles

Hurts did everything in his power in a comeback win over the Indianapolis Colts, Hurts passed for 190 yards and rushed for another 86. He also accounted for both touchdowns the team scored to help avoid back-to-back losses. Hurts has been good all year, and if the Eagles want to go where they think they can he’ll need to continue to perform at a high level.

4. Jacoby Brissett — Browns

In one of Brissett’s final starts before Deshaun Watson returns, the former N.C. State Wolfpack star had arguably his best performance of the season in Week 11. The strong-armed Brissett passed for 324 yards and three touchdowns while going 28-for-41, albeit in a loss. Brissett has one more start before Watson returns and he’ll be looking to get the Cleveland Browns back in the win column.

5. Justin Fields — Bears

The second-year quarterback continued his strong play despite being visibly hobbled by a bum shoulder. In a hard-fought last-second loss to the Falcons in Week 11, Justin Fields grinded out a combined 238 yards and two touchdowns. The big story is his shoulder, which he says is separated and has some ligament damage.

On Wednesday Fields told reporters, “The pain is pretty high today.”

But he says he still wants to play, and recent reports say he might just take the field, which would be a huge boost for the Bears against a strong 6-4 New York Jets team.
