The 5 Toughest Quarterbacks The 49ers Will Face In 2015

The San Francisco 49ers are tasked with a major challenge in 2015 when it comes to the opposing quarterbacks they’ll square off with during the regular season. Here’s our list of The 5 Toughest QBs The 49ers Will Face In 2015.

5) Matthew Stafford (December 27th)

Stafford is one of the most prolific passers in the league, though that hasn’t always resulted in wins. However, Detroit is determined to get back to the postseason this year, adding to the intensity of their Week 16 matchup against the Niners. Plus, he has a guy named Calvin Johnson he can throw to – which would make any quarterback look great.

4) Joe Flacco (October 18th)

Flacco's inconsistent regular seasons keep him from jumping into the top three, but his ability to step up in big games is bad news for the 49ers - especially in this Super Bowl XLVII rematch.

3) Ben Roethlisberger (September 20th)

 Roethlisberger is coming off of a career year, and he’ll have the Steelers in the mix for another playoff berth – adding a ton of intensity to this early season showdown.

2) Russell Wilson (October 22nd/November 22nd)

Wilson’s legs are the X-Factor, but it’s his decision making and ability to draw defenses away from his targets with his eyes that makes him so deadly. There are very few who have been so clutch so young, and it’ll only get tougher with him leading a Seahawks team with a Super Bowl-sized chip on their shoulders.

1) Aaron Rodgers (October 4th)

The reigning MVP gives every opposing defensive coordinator nightmares because of his elite arm strength and accuracy to go along with his athleticism and great decision making. Rodgers makes every one of his offensive weapons look that much better just by throwing them the ball, creating an offensive juggernaut.
