1. Joe Burrow

How could I not put Joe Burrow at the top? Even though this is a Bengals site, if anyone says that Burrow isn’t the best quarterback in the AFC North, they’re lying to themselves.

Burrow finished with a career-high 4,611 yards, 34 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions in 16 starts last year. His efforts not only netted him the Comeback Player of the Year award but he also led the team to a division title and a Super Bowl appearance. The dude was magical in his first full season as a starter and deserves this top spot.

Lamar Jackson might have been the No. 1 QB in the AFC North this time last year but when you compare Burrow and Jackson, the Bengals signal-caller threw for more yards, more touchdowns, and only one more interception despite appearing in four more games than Jackson did. He also got his team not only to the playoffs but to the Super Bowl while Jackson’s team didn’t make the postseason.

It makes perfect sense that Joe Burrow gets this top spot. How would you rank the AFC North quarterbacks?
