Ranking 12 QBs who face most pressure in wild-card weekend

Quarterbacks always get an outsized share of credit – and blame. That’s especially true in the playoffs. It’s why, heading into the NFL’s wild-card weekend, there is so much focus on the 14 starting QBs, 12 of whom will play this round.

It’s a crew that comes in all shapes, sizes and accomplishments.

There’s 44-year-old Tom Brady of Tampa Bay, starting his 46th playoff game. There are two 23-year-olds making their debuts (Philadelphia’s Jalen Hurts and New England’s Mac Jones).

Pittsburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger is set to retire.
