The NFC North is one of the more intriguing divisions in the National Football League this season. With Aaron Rodgers having been traded to New York, there's an argument to be made for who the top quarterback in the division.
Obviously, Green Bay Packers fans are biased, and why shouldn't they be? The Packers are 2-1 through the first three weeks of the 2023 campaign, and Jordan Love led the team to an unbelievable fourth-quarter comeback last Sunday.
But how does Love compare to the other three QBs in the NFC North? Here's a look at the NFC North QB power rankings heading into Week 4 of the 2023 NFL season.
4. Justin Fields, Chicago Bears
This is a no-brainer, right? After calling out his coaching staff last week, Justin Fields didn't help his cause any more with his play on the field. It didn't help that Fields and the Chicago Bears were playing the Kansas City Chiefs on the road, but Fields has done nothing in his brief career to prove that he's an NFL quarterback.
Fields is an elite athlete. But playing quarterback is about more than athletic ability. If that were all that it took to play the position, Fields would be No. 1 on this list. But accuracy, decision-making, and reading defenses don't appear to come naturally to the former first-round pick.
A team's win-loss record can't be the only determining factor when it comes to evaluating a QB, but it has to fit somewhere. Chicago is 0-3, trailed 31-0 last week in KC, and have been outscored 106-47 through the first three weeks of the 2023 season.
Justin Fields has more interceptions (4) than touchdowns (3) on the season. The Bears may want a re-do after trading the No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, but if they keep playing the way they have so far, they'll likely be in great position to select a quarterback with the first pick in next year's draft.
