Jared Goff (vs. Minnesota Vikings)

Welcome back, Jared Goff! After five straight weeks finishing outside the Top 10 the Lions quarterback would be the leader at quarterback in Week 15 with five passing touchdowns and 278 passing yards against the Broncos.

However, this week the Lions are playing a Vikings defense has allowed the eighth fewest points to quarterbacks over the past month. There certainly is a chance that Goff continues his strong play but it is hard to overlook five straight weeks subpar performance after one great performance.

Kyler Murray (vs. Chicago Bears)

After the New York Jets, the Chicago Bears' defense has been the best in shutting down quarterbacks over the past month. They have allowed only four passing touchdowns but have a league leading nine interceptions during this time period.

The Arizona Cardinals quarterback is also trending in the wrong direction after two Top 10 finishes in Week 11 and Week 12 and in the past two games has only two total touchdowns and two interceptions.
