All 32 NFL quarterbacks (including Jalen Hurts) ranked by Total QBR ahead of Week 13

Week 13 of the 2023 NFL season is set to begin on Thursday night, and the Eagles are wrapping up preparation for a monster, Sunday afternoon showdown against the San Francisco 49ers.

Philadelphia is 10-1, Jalen Hurts is an MVP candidate, and one of the actual measuring sticks of his candidacy will be where he lands in Total QBR entering the playoffs.

When evaluating quarterback play, a trusted metric is ESPN’s Total QBR rating, which does more than take into account statistics.

According to ESPN, Adjusted Total Quarterback Rating (QBR) “values the quarterback on all play types on a 0-100 scale adjusted for the strength of opposing defenses.”

So where do Hurts and other NFL quarterbacks, including the Cowboys Dak Prescott, Ravens’ Lamar Jackson, 49ers’ Brock Purdy, Bills’ Josh Allen, and Chiefs Patrick Mahomes, rank entering Week 13 of the 2023 NFL season?

Here’s a look at the QBR ratings for all 32 NFL quarterbacks going into Week 13 of the 2023 season and ahead of Cowboys vs. Seahawks.
