NFL Betting: Top 5 Oldest Quarterbacks
With all of the training regimens, nutritional breakthroughs, and high salaries, players are finding ways to delay the effects of Father Time. Quarterbacks seem to be the players that can play longer than the others, as they don’t take the physical punishment that other players do. Let’s take a look at the five oldest NFL quarterbacks that can still be game-changers so you can bet on their NFL odds.
Top Five Oldest NFL Quarterbacks That Are Game-Changers
The 43-year-old Brady was brought in to lead the Tampa Bay Buccaneers back into the playoffs. Brady has never been known for his arm strength, but his accuracy has been second to none.
With an arsenal full of weapons, and Bruce Arians having a quarterback-friendly offense, Brady has the opportunity to put up some very big numbers. Many experts saw Brady as the missing piece of the puzzle in Tampa Bay, but let’s see if he can continue to defy the odds and play at a very high level.
Brees has been the heart and soul of the Saints for the last 15 seasons. If the 41-year-old’s first two games of the season are any indicator, time may be catching up with Brees.
His play against Tampa Bay wasn’t what he has been accustomed to, and last week against the Raiders, he made some very costly mistakes. If Brees can turn things around, he still has the capability to lead his team to a Super Bowl.
With the offensive weapons that he has around him, Brees can still make his team better.
The Indianapolis Colts felt that Rivers was the one piece that they needed to make a Super Bowl run. The former Chargers quarterback has yet to win a Super Bowl, and at 38 years old, this could be his last run.
With one of the top offensive lines in the NFL, the Colts know that they can protect Rivers, and with time, he can still pick defenses apart. Combine that with a strong running game, and Rivers still has the ability to lead a team to the playoffs.
The Steelers didn’t realize how much the 38-year-old meant to them until he missed all of last season due to injury. The Steelers had a playoff-caliber team in 2019, but poor quarterback play cost them their chance at a playoff run.
Now that Roethlisberger is back, the Steelers are playing like a Super Bowl contender. With a strong running game, capable receivers, and Roethlisberger still having the ability to use his feet to make plays, the Steelers offense will cause problems for opposing teams.
When the Packers drafted quarterback Jordan Love in the first round of this year’s NFL Draft, they lit a fire under Aaron Rodgers. At age 36, the Packers thought that after last year’s subpar season that they should look for his future replacement.
Rodgers took that as a slight, and in the first two games of this season, he has looked like an All-Pro. Heading into Week 3, he had thrown for over 600 yards with six touchdowns and no interceptions.
Rodgers is showing everyone that even though he may not have the most talented surrounding cast, he can still lead the team to success.
