Patrick Mahomes topped the table with 75 QBR, but the Chiefs lost to the Bills in Week 5. But Mahomes showed that he is in good shape but the defense is not helping the team win games. This is the second time the Chiefs have fallen as favorites in a week of the 2021 season.
Matthew Stafford is the other starter for this week with 74.8 QBR, he and Mahomes are the only two on the list with more than seventy points in ratings. Stafford performed well in the game against the Seattle Seahawks, although that game was in favor of the Rams because of Russell Wilson's absence with the Seahawks.
Record man Kyler Murray is third in the rankings with 68.5 QBR, this week he and the Cardinals are expected to win the sixth game in a row. The Cardinals won in Week 5 against the 49ers 17-10.

Inside the Top 10 of the QBR Rankings is Tom Brady, the Buccaneers won 45-17 against the Dolphins, Brady threw 411 passing yards in that game. Another starter for Week 6 is Justin Herbert, he won last week against the Browns and threw 398 passing yards.
Lamar Jackson may not be the first in the rankings, but he is in the top 10 with 61.9 QBR. Jackson proved to be a big leader winning a game that was almost lost against the Colts, Jackson threw 442 passing yards and was also the running back leader with 62 rushing yards.
Some players like Russell Wilson appear on the list even though they will not be available as starters, but they enter the list since their backups still do not have good numbers to have a spot in the rankings.
