These Three Quarterbacks Are Great At Making Blitzes Pay

The best quarterbacks are masters in reading opposing defenses. Watching countless hours of film gives them an idea of what’s brewing on the other side of the ball. Hence, they know the best way to counter defensive schemes, even if they initially disguise their intentions.

Therefore, as Pro Football Focus pointed out, it’s no surprise that Dak Prescott, Jared Goff, and Patrick Mahomes are the best quarterbacks against the blitz. Prescott has 37 touchdown passes against the blitz since 2021, the most by any quarterback. Last season, he finished second to Lamar Jackson in the Most Valuable Player Award voting.

Not far behind is Jared Goff, who has 34 touchdowns versus the blitz in the same period. Goff had 4,575 passing yards and 30 touchdowns last season. He was also the main reason for the Lions’ first NFC Championship Game berth since 1991. His efforts earned him a four-year, $212 million contract extension.

Finally, Patrick Mahomes is third on the list with 32 touchdowns against the blitz. He’s the most successful among active quarterbacks after winning his third Super Bowl title. He and the Kansas City Chiefs will aim for an unprecedented third consecutive Super Bowl title this season.
