NFL Week 1 Quarterback Matchups

The sports world is awaiting the start of the 2024 National Football League season.

Things are just different when football is going on.

We are inching closer and closer to the start of the NFL season.

There are many ways to look at the matchups, and how the season will go, but today, we want to discuss the National Football League Week 1 Quarterback matchups.

Without further ado, here we go:


Lamar Jackson vs. Patrick Mahomes

Thursday, September 5th, 2024

The Ravens and Chiefs are the first game of the season on Thursday Night Football.

Jackson was the MVP and Mahomes continues to be the toughest in the league to eliminate.

These two quarterbacks saw each other in the AFC title game a season ago.

Nothing like an elite matchup to start the season.


Jordan Love vs. Jalen Hurts

Friday, September 6th, 2024

Jordan Love is starting his second season as the starting quarterback for the Packers.

He will get an Eagles team in Brazil that has a ton of proving to do.

Jalen Hurts is known for his ability to move the football via his arms or his legs.

This is the quarterback that his team created a new play in the game just for him.

Another elite matchup to start the season.


Russell Wilson vs. Kirk Cousins

Sunday, September 8th, 2024

Both the Pittsburgh Steelers and Atlanta Falcons are going to have new starting quarterbacks.

We are projecting Wilson getting the start over Justin Fields in Pittsburgh.

Cousins was moved from Minnesota to Atlanta, and will have Michael Penix Jr waiting behind him.


Sam Darnold vs. Daniel Jones

Sunday, September 8th, 2024

This is where we start looking around and wondering, is this the best they got?

The Vikings have Darnold, Jaren Hall, and they drafted JJ McCarthy.

Darnold has no intention of losing the starting spot to a rookie.

For Jones, his health this season is going to play a key role in his future with the team, and in the league.


Trevor Lawrence vs. Tua Tagovailoa

Sunday, September 8th, 2024

The Jaguars just extended the contract for Lawrence.

Tua was really good last season, but ran into some injuries late in the season.

This is a really good matchup, and the two teams are both set for a big season.

The battle of Florida in Week 1.


Drake Maye vs. Joe Burrow

Sunday, September 8th, 2024

If Maye gets the nod for the Patriots, it will be a 22 year old rookie as the leader of the team.

Jacoby Brissett is there, so do not be surprised if the Patriots go with a veteran to start the season.

Regardless, it will be an interesting battle to follow.

For Cincinnati, Joe Burrow is set to have a monster 2024 season.

After getting hurt early last season, he was never right.

The Bengals want payback on the league for the tough 2023 season.


Kyler Murray vs. Josh Allen

Sunday, September 8th, 2024

The Cardinals could use a really nice season from Kyler Murray.

Arizona would like to start seeing the steps towards progressing as a team.

He now has Marvin Harrison to throw to.

For the Buffalo Bills, they took away his top option in Stefon Diggs.

Many guess that Buffalo will find options, and still be able to compete at the top of the AFC.


CJ Stroud vs. Anthony Richardson

Sunday, September 8th, 2024

What a battle this is going to be.

Two second year quarterbacks, both that saw huge growth in their game a season ago.

Stroud is going to get all the hype following playing a full season.

Richardson was developing quickly, but injuries sent him out for the season.

Richardson needs to be more careful when running, but is poised for a big time career under center.


Malik Willis vs. Caleb Williams

Sunday, September 8th, 2024

For the Titans, they look like they are going to have a quarterback battle with Mason Rudolph, Malik Willis and Will Levis.

Predicting who is going to win that battle is an impossible task.

Whoever it is will get a Week 1 matchup against the top pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.

Out of Southern California, there is a ton on the shoulders of Caleb Williams to quickly turn this Bears team around.


Bryce Young vs. Derek Carr

Sunday, September 8th, 2024

The Carolina Panthers have got to see more out of their second year signal caller in Bryce Young.

Young and the Panthers were the worst team in the league that season.

Derek Carr will get the nod for the Saints.

The Saints offense is all over on what they want to do, so it will be interesting what kind of season Carr has in 2024.


Aidan O’Connell vs. Justin Herbert

Sunday, September 8th, 2024

A pair of middling AFC West teams.

This is the first game for coach Harbaugh since leaving Michigan.

O’Connell showed some signs of life, but will need to be good during camp to fend off veteran Gardner Minshew.

Herbert is finally going to get some coaching, and it will be fun to see if his can take off.


Bo Nix vs. Geno Smith

Sunday, September 8th, 2024

Why not let Bo Nix get the start in Denver?

The Broncos are projected to be one of the worst teams in the league.

The Broncos let Russell Wilson go, may as well go young, and see what you got.

For Seattle, Smith remains the signal caller, but with a new coaching staff, we will see how long that lasts.


Jayden Daniels vs. Baker Mayfield

Sunday, September 8th, 2024

Washington may as well give Daniels the nod in his rookie season.

For Tampa Bay, Mayfield has been more than serviceable.


Dak Prescott vs. DeShaun Watson

Sunday, September 8th, 2024

An interesting matchup here.

Joe Flacco is no longer with the Browns, so if Watson gets hurt or cannot get the job done, it’s Jameis Winston time in Cleveland.

For the Cowboys, Dak is the guy, and under the microscope the second he walks on the field.


Matthew Stafford vs. Jared Goff

Sunday, September 8th, 2024

Always a fun game when these two teams go against their former teams.

The Los Angeles Rams and Detroit Lions are the first Sunday Night Football game of the season.

The Lions are one of the top picks to win the NFC this season after reaching the NFC title game a season ago.


Aaron Rodgers vs. Brock Purdy

Monday, September 9th, 2024

The Monday Night Football game featuring Aaron Rodgers? Where have we seen this before?

For San Francisco, another year of the boring, productive, overlooked Brock Purdy.

All he seems to do is produce and win.

Week 1 QBs Performance Review – NFL Analysis

Previous Betting News

There are still a couple of Monday night games to be played, but for the most part, Week 1 of the NFL season is in the books. We have certainly seen more than enough to start talking about individual performances, specifically at the QB position. There were some great performances to be found among the games played thus far, as well as some stinkers. It is still too early to get overly excited or worried about an individual performance, but we thought it might still be fun to highlight some of the highs and lows in QB play in the opening week so you can start narrowing down your bets and wager on their NFL odds.

QB Rundown on Sunday’s Week 1 Games: Top & Worst performance, and Complete letdown

Top Performance

I think we are basically looking at a tie here, as there were a couple of QB’s who really shone in Week 1, neither of which can be considered a surprise. Let’s start by talking about Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks. He started the season in Atlanta, going against the Falcons, and while he did not have as many yards as Matt Ryan, he did a whole lot more with fewer passing attempts. Wilson went 31/25 for 322 yards and 4 TDs. He added 29 more yards on the ground.

A lot of people were keeping a close eye on Aaron Rodgers of the Packers in Week 1, especially after all the draft drama this offseason. If the Packers really are ready to move on from the former MVP, they may want to rethink that after Rodgers went 32/44 for 364 yards and 4 TD passes in a 43-34 win over the Minnesota Vikings.

We should also give a shout out to Josh Allen of the Bills who was 33-46 for 312 yards and 2 TDs.

Worst Performance

I’m not sure whether we should call it the worst performance or the most disappointing, but other than a TD drive to start the game, Tom Brady looked mighty mediocre. He tossed a pair of INTs, including a pick six, as the Buccaneers went down to the Saints in New Orleans.

Carson Wentz also deserves some consideration for the worst performance of the week, although in fairness, he did not get a lot of help from his O-line, taking 8 sacks and 14 hits over the course of the day in a loss to the Washington Commanders

Sam Darnold of the New York Jets is another one that has to be feeling some of the glare from the spotlight this morning after a pretty woeful day against the Bills. He did pick up the pace a little later in the game, but a horrific start put the Jets behind the 8-ball early.

Complete Letdown

While it as tempting to put Brady in here, we are choosing instead to go with Baker Mayfield of the Cleveland Browns. He took  serious step back last season in what was an awful year for the Browns, but despite a lot of talk in the offseason about how things would be better this year, Mayfield and the Browns stunk the joint out in a 38-6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Mayfield went 21/39 for 189 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT. Perhaps he looked worse because Lamar Jackson was so good, but either way, things look problematic in Cleveland.

Prop On Where Will Colin Kaepernick Play in Week 1

Previous Betting News

It’s the story that won’t go away: Colin Kaepernick is more talented than most backup quarterbacks in the NFL but still hasn’t signed with a team because club owners don’t want to anger their fan base and advertisers. Of course, Kaepernick alienated many Americans by not standing for the national anthem last season. Mybookie.ag offers an NFL betting special on which team Kaepernick will be by Week 1. If he’s not on any, the bet is void. Here are the options.

Analyzing the Prop On Where Will Colin Kaepernick Play in Week 1

Cleveland Browns +200

Check out our preview of Cleveland’s preseason game Monday night against the New York Giants. Kaepernick just doesn’t fit here as the Browns have three quarterbacks in Brock Osweiler, DeShone Kizer and Cody Kessler. They have no need for Colin Kaepernick barring two of those guys getting hurt over the next couple of weeks. Plus the Browns are rebuilding so Kap doesn’t fit.

Indianapolis Colts +300

Now this is interesting. Of course, the Colts have one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL in Andrew Luck, but he has been slow recovering from offseason shoulder surgery and Week 1 of the regular season is in jeopardy. Luck could start on the PUP list, missing six games. Would the Colts really go with Scott Tolzien over Kaepernick?

Owner Jim Irsay recently stated that the team has not considered bringing in Kaepernick: “We did have a [quarterback] candidate or two,” Irsay said of adding a veteran. “I think that we came semi-close to bringing in a mid-30, mid-to-late 30 guy. We had a [salary] number. The guy wanted more than the number. It wasn’t Kaepernick. It just didn’t work out so we moved on.”

Kaepernick doesn’t fit the type of quarterback that the Colts are looking to run their offensive system. The 29-year-old has operated more in the style of using his feet to create plays rather than be a prototypical pocket quarterback like Luck.

Seattle Seahawks +300

This won’t be happening barring an injury as the Seahawks already looked into Colin Kaepernick earlier this month and passed. Seattle has Russell Wilson as its starter and here’s what Coach Pete Carroll said of not singing Kap: “He’s a starter in this league. We have a starter, but he is a starter in this league and I can’t imagine somebody won’t give him a chance to play.”

Carroll declined to comment on whether Kaepernick’s contract demands were too much for the team but said he’s “capable of being a championship guy” and despite his ups and downs, he’s “shown enough ups that you know he can do that.”

LA Rams +400

This doesn’t seem like a fit. The Rams are all-in on second-year quarterback Jared Goff, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 draft. They are happy with Sean Mannion as their backup.

New Orleans Saints +500

There was talk this spring that New Orleans coach Sean Payton was interested in Johnny Manziel, but that was proven false. Drew Brees has been incredibly durable for the Saints so there’s no need to sign Kaepernick.

Buffalo Bills +500

This could be an option if starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor goes down injured. Taylor and Colin Kaepernick have similar styles. Otherwise, nope.

Houston Texans +600

No shot here. Houston has a quarterback battle ongoing between rookie Deshaun Watson and Tom Savage. The Texans are committed to Watson long-term so Kaepernick won’t sign here.

New York Jets +700

The Jets’ QB situation is sad and Colin Kaepernick is better than likely starter Josh McCown or backups Christian Hackenberg or Bryce Petty. But New York isn’t even trying to win this season, so signing Kaepernick and his distraction makes no sense.

Any Other Team +300

For what it’s worth, tied-in NFL reporter Peter King of the MMQB.com and NBC Football Night in America says he thinks Kaepernick will have a job by the time the season starts. Regardless of whether it’s because of his football skills or his political leanings, the end result is the same: He’s a guy who started 11 games last year and is just three years from almost winning the Super Bowl.

NFL players have been calling it collusion for months. While Kaepernick has remained silent on the subject, players have all come out and said they believe Colin Kaepernick is being blackballed.

Expert Prediction

I’d go with any other team. The Ravens looked into Kaepernick and could again if Joe Flacco’s health doesn’t return. Pittsburgh could use a better backup than Landry Jones. Dallas owner Jerry Jones isn’t afraid of controversy. There are a few other possibilities.
