Starting quarterbacks are the name of the game. 

Field a good one and the odds of winning increase. Take a look at the four NFL teams that made last year’s conference championship games and you’ll see that all squads were led by a talented signal caller: Patrick Mahomes, Matthew Stafford, Joe Burrow and Jimmy Garoppolo.
