The Best QB Throws: Week 2

Your weekly dose of phenomenal throws from across the NFL

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.


CJ Stroud to Robert Woods


Terrific ball placement from the rookie quarterback CJ Stroud here to veteran Robert Woods to setup the offense deep down field in the red zone. Stroud showed all the hallmarks of a franchise quarterback in the narrow loss to the Colts. Plenty to work towards with throws like this.


Jordan Love to Dontayvion Wicks


Brilliant work in the pocket from Packers young gun Jordan Love on the dropback here before he fires a perfect throw into the stride of his young receiver Dontayvion Wicks, allowing him to put a move on the defense and streak away for a touchdown. It’s the kind of throw that breeds confidence across the receiving room. When you know your signal-caller can dial up these throws, receivers go all out to make plays.


Josh Allen to Khalil Shakir


Josh Allen somehow pressed rewind on taking off for a scramble once he saw Khalil Shakir beat his man on an inside route – Allen in the same movement fired a back shoulder dart to his wideout in stride so he could maintain momentum and get into the end zone. Elite throw.


Ryan Tannehill to Treylon Burks


The renaissance of Ryan Tannehill is real. The much-maligned Titans quarterback answered his Week 1 critics with a virtuoso performance that displayed all the hallmarks of why he has been rated so highly throughout his career. The 61-yard connection with second-year wideout Treylon Burks begs the question, why don’t we see these kind of throws more going forward?!


Sam Howell to Terry McLaurin


It doesn’t get much better than this from Sam Howell – the Commanders quarterback displayed excellent footwork in the pocket, duking the defense by keeping his eyes to the left to avoid telegraphing the throw before nailing the throw between multiple coverages. This is the quarterback Terry McLaurin deserves.


Russell Wilson to Marvin Mims Jr.


Russ can still cook? You tell us! This deep ball to rookie Marvin Mims Jr. was old school Russ in action. Wilson drops back and steps up into the throw with conviction and a poetic action. A blast from the past.


Tua Tagovailoa to Braxton Berrios


Can we talk about this throw? Please! The magnificent start to the season by Tua Tagovailoa was evident in New England as he walked into the Patriots house and balled out once gain. Tua found Braxton Berrios down the sideline despite heavy backside pressure with a effortlessly flighted ball into coverage – he put it in the only place his receiver could make the play.


Bryce Young to Jonathan Mingo


It was a difficult Monday Night Football debut for Bryce Young, however he showed something in the second half as the Panthers needed to get back into the game against the Saints. This perfectly placed throw to fellow rookie Jonathan Mingo was right on the money. It set up a touchdown pass to Adam Thielen on the next play.


Kenny Pickett to George Pickens


Sometimes all a quarterback can do is stay in the pocket and wait until the perfect moment to release even though he knows he is going to take a big hit. That is exactly what Steelers quarterback Kenny Pickett did for his receiver George Pickens to take it to the house from 71 yards out. Brave, big-time throw.
