Young quarterbacks headline NFL Divisional Round playoffs

The new era of NFL quarterbacks has officially arrived.

KANSAS CITY, Kan. – Each year, NFL fans could count on one (or more) of Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Ben Roethlisberger, or the Manning brothers to be vying for an NFL Divisional Round win like clockwork.

But the new age has taken over.

After Wild Card Weekend, not a single quarterback is currently over 30 in the 2023 NFL playoffs.

In fact, Cowboys starter Dak Prescott, 29, is the oldest active starter and the only starter over 27 years old.

Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes is the only playing quarterback who already owns a Super Bowl ring. He’s only 27 years old and is aiming for his fifth straight AFC championship game.

It’s truly a new era, with the old guard being replaced by established superstars in Mahomes, Josh Allen (26), Jalen Hurts (24) and Joe Burrow (26), with rising stars like Daniel Jones (25). and Trevor Lawrence (23) hot on his heels.

In fact, Brock Purdy (23), who led the 49ers to a win over the Seahawks on Saturday, became the third youngest quarterback to win a playoff game since 2000, behind Michael Vick in 2003 and Roethlisberger in 2005.

While Brady and Rodgers could both end up back in the playoffs next season, it’s clear the NFL has finally gotten to the point where Mahomes, Burrow and even already-retired quarterbacks like Lamar Jackson, Justin Herbert and Tua Tagovailoa are taking the mantle take over from the superstars of the last decade.
