The Los Angeles Rams are going to be facing off against some very talented QBs in 2024, but which five stand out as being the best? Games in the NFL are won and lost in the trenches, but they're also won and lost at the QB position. The Rams, fortunately, have one of the best passers in the NFL. However, there are a ton of other teams who also boast some pretty good signal callers.

While the QB does play a huge part in the outcome of a game, there are still 52 other players on a gameday roster that can impact the outcome, and these five QBs that the LA Rams will face in 2024 are quite good.

Honorable mentions

  • Aaron Rodgers, New York Jets - Prime time Aaron Rodgers can win a Super Bowl. But what is post-Achilles Tendon injury Rogers capable of doing?
  • Caleb Williams, Chicago Bears - He is touted as the best quarterback in the 2024 NFL Draft. But first overall is simply where selected, not how he will perform.
  • Drake Maye, New England Patriots - This rookie is reportedly capable of making all NFL throws. But can he do so with a fast hard-hitting pass rush bearing down on him?

Who are the 5 best QBs the Los Angeles Rams face in the 2024 NFL Season?
5. Kyler Murray, Arizona Cardinals

I think people seem to forget just how good Kyler Murray is. One of the true dual-threat passers in the NFL, Murray can carve up opposing defenses with his legs or with his arm. But the Rams have seen him twice a year for years now, so it's not like I am just know telling the Rams faithful about Murray.

The Arizona Cardinals are a team I maintain are going to take a huge leap in the 2024 NFL Season, so I do not think them doubling their win totals from 2023 is all that crazy. They won four games last year and could easily win eight this year. While the Rams are clearly better - and do have the better QB, Kyler Murray is going to play quite well this year.

4. Jordan Love, Green Bay Packers

Jordan Love's mid-season turnaround in 2023 was truly remarkable. The Packers ended up in the NFC Divisional Round, and it was largely due to Love, who now feels like a future MVP at the position. What we quickly saw with Love is much of what we saw of Aaron Rodgers in his prime; off-platform throws, a flick of the wrist, and being able to throw on the run.

The Green Bay Packers are one of the youngest teams in the NFL, but they just so happen to be one of the better ones, too. Jordan Love is a problem and the LA Rams defense will have their hands full when the two teams meet in 2024.

3. Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills

Turnover-prone Josh Allen is still an electric player. The Rams will probably intercept him at least once when the two teams meet in 2024, but there is no mistaking the high-end QB play that Allen can sometimes provide. The Buffalo Bills are in a bit of a re-tooling year, as they've had to shed some costly veteran players to get more cap-compliant.

So while the Bills might not be quite as talented as they were in recent seasons, Josh Allen should keep them in it, and the Rams are going to need to be at their best to keep Allen at bay. Perhaps if you're bold enough to think so, the Rams vs. the Bills in 2024 could end up being a Super Bowl preview.

2. Brock Purdy, San Francisco 49ers

The Brock Purdy debate is interesting, as some people think that Purdy is more of a product of the system he plays in, but I believe both things can be true; Purdy is very, very good at playing QB, and the offensive system he plays in is also quite good. In two seasons of the Brock Purdy era, the 49ers have made it to the NFC Championship Game and the Super Bowl.

Right now, the pattern would have them win the Super Bowl in 2024. And while Purdy is a huge part of what they do, the roster itself is also among the best in the NFL, so the LA Rams will have their hands full when the teams meet twice a year.

1. Jared Goff, Detroit Lions

Jared Goff was almost thrown away from by the Los Angeles Rams when the team swung for the fences in trading for Matthew Stafford. At this point, it seems pretty obvious that both teams are happy with the trade, as the Rams won the Super Bowl in 2021, Stafford's first year with the team, and the Lions look like a safe bet to win the Super Bowl in the coming years.

Detroit's roster might be the best in football, and the Rams themselves are gearing up for another run. Jared Goff is an excellent pocket passer who has thrown 59 touchdowns on just 19 interceptions over the last two seasons. Once not seen as a slam-dunk starter in the NFL, Goff has simply revived his career.
