Following the biggest moves of the offseason, who is currently the top quarterback in the NFC and where does Minnesota Vikings signal-caller Kirk Cousins rank?

With the Minnesota Vikings having a new head coach and a new general manager for the first time since 2013, some thought this offseason was the perfect time for the team to trade some of their most expensive contracts, including quarterback Kirk Cousins.

Instead of trading him, however, the Vikings decided to give Cousins a one-year extension that keeps him under contract with the team until 2024.

Minnesota has repeatedly emphasized their intentions to remain competitive during the 2022 season and they clearly feel that Cousins gives them the best chance to do that.

While the Vikings decided to keep their quarterback, a number of talented signal-callers have switched teams this offseason.

With guys like Russell Wilson and Matt Ryan no longer in the conference, who are the 10 best quarterbacks in the NFC heading into the 2022 season?

(Note: These rankings were determined by using the following formula…

Final ranking = (Pro Football Reference 2021 AV ranking + PFF 2021 grade ranking + ESPN 2021 QBR ranking + Football Outsiders 2021 DVOA ranking) / 4)
