Updated QB Power Rankings After NFL Week 14

It was a weekend of wild weather and fantastic finishes as Week 14 was officially entered into the record books.

The arctic blast appears to have turned the entire northern territory into a giant snow globe. And just like a snow globe, the top 10 in these updated quarterback power rankings has been significantly shaken up. 

Rookie quarterbacks whose names you probably didn't expect to hear this season have shocked, while some other big-name rookies have fallen flat on their backs. 

Find out where sensations such as Josh McCown and Nick Foles have landed after victories in frigid temperatures. Though McCown withstood the cold, his arm remained red-hot. Foles did a great job limiting turnovers in a game marred with them. 

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 will also give quarterbacks a slight boost in addition to their individual performances. The statistics used to help determine the ranking system are pulled from ESPN.comNFL.com and Pro Football Focus (subscription required) unless stated otherwise. Personal observation and opinion will play a key role as well.

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

Also, Pro Football Focus grades every single play of the season to generate a cumulative point total, which weighs into the metric as well.

Other key statistics considered are passer rating, touchdown-to-interception ratio, yards per pass attempt, fumbles lost, rushing yards per game, completion percentage, etc.
