Every NFL team’s starting and backup quarterback in 2022

Every NFL team’s starting and backup quarterback in 2022 originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

There have been some major quarterback changes in recent weeks.

The Indianapolis Colts turned to second-year QB Sam Ehlinger to replace Matt Ryan, and new head coach Jeff Saturday quickly went back to the veteran. The Carolina Panthers will give Sam Darnold the keys after Baker Mayfield and P.J. Walker’s struggles. Most recently, the New York Jets benched second-year QB Zach Wilson in favor of Mike White.

As the playoff race heats up, a win from a backup quarterback could make all the difference.
