Updated QB Power Rankings After NFL Week 6
Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Some new faces have emerged on the scene in Week 6, while some have catapulted to near the top of the updated NFL quarterback power rankings. 

It doesn't appear to matter who starts at quarterback for the Jaguars; they always seem to round out the bottom of the league. 

Meanwhile, the top 10 has experienced a pretty significant shakeup after solid performances by some and uncharacteristic struggles by others. 

For these rankings, every current starting quarterback in the NFL will be considered and valued through numerous categories, each weighted differently as the season progresses.

Each week, I factor in several key attributes for the quarterback position such as intelligence, arm strength, accuracy, athleticism and leadership. 

Wins throughout this season will also give quarterbacks a slight boost in addition to their individual performances based on several metrics. These statistics come exclusively via ESPN.com, NFL.com, and ProFootballFocus (subscription required), unless stated otherwise. Personal observation and opinion will also play a key role each and every week.

In the end, the essence of a power ranking with regard to quarterbacks really should consider this question: If I had one game to win and needed a quarterback to start for me, who would I want as my guy?

The only consideration of past performances now occurs in the event of breaking a tie or separating two quarterbacks who have played similarly. 

Note: Total QBR is a scoring system which assesses everything a quarterback does on the field. It can be explained further via ESPN by clicking the link above.
