Ranking the Backup Quarterbacks Expected to Start in NFL's Week 11

Josh Zerkle@JoshZerkleChief Writer IIIJune 23, 2016

No fewer than four backup quarterbacks who started their Week 10 games on the bench are expected to start for their respective teams in Week 11. Which of these guys gives his team the best chance at victory?

Of the four (Chicago's Jason Campbell, Colin Kaepernick of the 49ers, Pittsburgh's Byron Leftwich and Philadelphia's Nick Foles), we're most familiar with Leftwich, who's essentially a placeholder on the roster. Somebody has to wait behind Ben Roethlisberger, who often plays through many injuries. It's very rare that the Steelers ever need to call upon a backup quarterback, and that's obvious with who they've actually charged with that duty. 

One interesting note here is that two of these four quarterbacks will actually face each other when the Bears head to San Francisco for the Monday night game (assuming Alex Smith is ruled out, which is up in the air at this point). While Kaepernick is a relatively green player, Campbell has been a sort of NFL racquetball. The Bears are Campbell's third NFL team in four seasons, and his fans will be eager to see him compete on national television. 

Check out our video to see how I've ranked Week 11's backup quarterbacks getting a chance to start. Leave your thoughts in the comments below, and as always, thanks for watching.
