3. Derek Carr, Saints

The New Orleans Saints might be 2-0, but they haven't looked pretty doing it. Both of their wins have come by a combined four points over the 1-1 Tennessee Titans and the 0-2 Carolina Panthers. And, the biggest reason why they've gotten off to an undefeated start has nothing to do with their offense. It's been all defense for New Orleans, who is giving up just 16 pionts per game through two weeks.

Derek Carr hasn't been awful, but he also hasn't been great. A great quarterback should have been able to do more against the Titans and Panthers in the opening pair of games, but Carr has combined for 533 passing yards, just one touchdown and two interceptions. So far, his QBR sits at just 47.5, which is good for his lowest since 2018 if he kept it up.

Next week, Carr and the Saints will travel to a hostile environment and take on the Green Bay Packers, who should more than likely be their toughest test yet. Carr will have to have himself a good game in this one, especially because of how well Jordan Love is playing, leading the league with six touchdown passes in two games.
