COWBOYS’ PRESCOTT LEADS AFTER WEEK 1 IN HERALD QUARTERBACK RANKINGS: Dallas’ Dak Prescott scored a 55.25-point game in Week 1 to lead everybody as the Miami Herald launches its 22nd season of NFL quarterback rankings. The initial standings reflect the magnitude of the Dolphins’ 59-10 opening loss, as Ravens QB Lamar Jackson checks in second with 50.20 points, while Miami’s Ryan Fitzpatrick is rated No. 33 of 37 men who threw at least one pass in Week 1. Our rankings factor accuracy, passing yardage, touchdown/interception ratio and team result. Most major rankings including the NFL’s and ESPN’s are percentile-based, allowing QBs who miss half a season to still win a title, while our system is cumulative, rewarding players who are consistently productive and avoid injury or benching. The Top 20 (plus Dolphins) entering Week 2:
