NFL Week 9 schedule: 5 QBs primed for huge games

There are ample opportunities for quarterbacks to go off in this NFL Week 9 schedule. However, these fives are above the others.

5. Joe Burrow, Cincinnati Bengals

Cincinnati is coming off a miserable loss to the New York Jets. Now they face the wobbly Cleveland Browns this weekend in the Queen City. At times, the Browns have been able to get a pass rush with Myles Garrett and Jadeveon Clowney, but the unit has struggled as well. Look for receivers Ja’Marr Chase, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd to go off with Burrow spreading the ball around against an overwhelmed secondary.

4. Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys welcome in the Denver Broncos this weekend, and it should be a fireworks show. Denver will be without corner Bryce Callahan. Although rookie Patrick Surtain II has been excellent, the Dallas receivers should find room. Additionally, after Denver traded away cornerstone and future Hall of Famer Von Miller this week, one wonders how much the Broncos will have in the proverbial tank.

3. Kirk Cousins, Minnesota Vikings

This might seem like an odd choice, but there’s a few reasons to believe Cousins will play well. For one, the Ravens are thin at corner due to a variety of injuries, and Minnesota has a few studs on the perimeter in Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson. Also, the Vikings could be getting gashed by Baltimore’s offense, meaning the Vikings will be throwing constantly to either stay in or get back in the game. Cousins should have a big statline on Sunday afternoon.

2. Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills

Allen has the pleasure of playing against the Jacksonville Jaguars, who made Geno Smith look fantastic last week. Buffalo gets to play in the warm setting of Duval County with Allen throwing against a bad secondary, with receivers Cole Beasley, Emmanuel Sanders and Stefon Diggs ready to take advantage. While the Bills might pull away early and start running, Allen has the capability of putting up huge numbers before halftime against arguably the AFC’s worst team.

1. Matthew Stafford, Los Angeles Rams

Sunday night pits the Rams against the Tennessee Titans at SoFi Stadium. Stafford has the matchup of the week, getting an injured Tennessee secondary against a duo of dynamite Los Angeles weapons in Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods. Stafford, who might be the NFL MVP at the season’s midway point, should put up  gaudy numbers in front of a primetime audience.
