Every week we will bring you a selection of the best throws from quarterbacks across the NFL. Did you see an amazing throw worthy of inclusion? If so, you can tweet @TheQBList on Twitter to let us know and we’ll give you a shout-out here in the article if your tip makes the cut.
Josh Allen to Stefon Diggs
A contentious inclusion for some, maybe as this throw from Josh Allen actually resulted in an incompletion, however not all fantastic throws are hauled in by receivers and the context around this throw warrants its inclusion. On a crazy weather night in Buffalo, with the wind howling and swirling, Allen unleashed this perfectly placed deep ball from in his own half to drop it right into the hands of Stefon Diggs. Diggs is a fantastic receiver but he will look back at this knowing he should have caught it. What a throw!
Kyler Murray to DeAndre Hopkins
Welcome back to one of the most exciting quarterback and receiver duos in the NFL – Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins linked up for this phenomenal throw and catch to open the scoring for the Cardinals on fourth down against the Bears. Lovely stuff.
Russell Wilson to Tyler Lockett
Pretty rainbows into the end zone in Seattle – we haven’t been able to say that in a while. Russell Wilson finally found some groove for the first time since returning from injury to lift the Seahawks above rivals the 49ers. This delightful back shoulder throw to Tyler Lockett in the back of the end zone was vintage Wilson, a perfectly weighted pass for his receiver to haul in with his trusty hands.
Tua Tagovailoa to DeVante Parker
Every week I love watching Tua Tagovailoa do his thing. There is something quite enjoyable about the uniqueness of a left-handed quarterback going to work. This instinctive lob to DeVante Parker down the sideline to setup Miami’s first touchdown was one of my favorite throws of the week. Parker does a great job adjusting and bringing in the pass on the outside the the receiver, a perfectly positioned throw.
Dak Prescott to Michael Gallup
Dak Prescott wasted no time in making a splash in primetime with this high throw into the back corner of the end zone for Michael Gallup to go up and get. A beautiful play design, well executed. Prescott put the ball up and Gallup knew he had to go airborne to bring it in.
Tom Brady to Mike Evans
Still throwing elite deep balls at 44 years old, Tom Brady unleashed this missile to Mike Evans down the right sideline for him to grab in stride. The 36-yard connection setup the Bucs second touchdown of the game and Brady didn’t look back, throwing for four scores en-route to a convincing 30-17 win.
Patrick Mahomes to Travis Kelce
Another for the highlight reel from Patrick Mahomes, who jigged around in the backfield before firing a cross-body sidearm throw to Travis Kelce for the first down. I’ll never get tired of this genius.
Gardner Minshew to Dallas Goedert
Gardner Minshew, the best backup quarterback in the league, finally got his chance to flex his muscles this season and he didn’t disappoint, completing his first 11 passes including this beautifully flighted ball for tight end Dallas Goedert for the touchdown. “Minshew Mania” is alive and well and men across Philadelphia are pruning their facial hair in time for next week.
