See who just shook up the top of our NFL Week 6 QB rankings, toppling Mahomes

TOPSY TURVY! FALCONS’ RYAN WINS WEEK 6, OVERTAKES LEAD AS CHIEFS’ MAHOMES FALLS IN HERALD NFL QUARTERBACK RANKINGS: Atlanta’s Matt Ryan scored a big 53.80-point game to earn weekly honors and vault two spots to No. 1 overall in the Miami Herald’s Week 6 NFL quarterback rankings. Ryan has never won a season title but has been runner-up three times, including last season. Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes loses his four-week grip on the lead and dips to third place. This is our 22nd season of QB rankings. 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. Our system is cumulative, rewarding players who are consistently productive and avoid injury or benching. Players on a bye week take a temporary hit that evens out over the course of a season. The top 20 (plus Dolphins) entering Week 7:
