2. Seattle Seahawks: Wilson, Smith
Russell Wilson just quietly goes about his business up in the Pacific Northwest. He’s fine to let the Seahawks defense take all the credit, but we aren’t. Russ is one of the best quarterbacks in the league and he should get credit for that.
Imagine what Russ could do if he had some real weapons around him. That would be scary. So would Geno Smith taking over for Wilson be, but hopefully we don’t have to see that this year.
Projected Record: 11-5
1. Kansas City Chiefs: Mahomes, Henne
Patrick Mahomes is the best quarterback in the league, it’s as simple as that. He and Andy Reid led the Chiefs to a Super Bowl win last season and you can bet on the former MVP to have them in the running again this season.
Sure, his numbers dipped in 2019, but after the season he had in 2018 they almost had to. Mahomes isn’t going anywhere, so backup Chad Henne can splurge for that more comfortable headset. He’s going to be wearing it all year long.
Projected Record: 12-4
