Tim Tebow Rumors: Carson Palmer & Other NFL Playoff QBs Who Aren’t On Tebow’s Level Yet [VIDEO]
The NFL playoffs are set and almost half the field has a QB who's yet to accomplish as much as Tim Tebow.
The former NFL player famously won his only playoff game in 2011 against the Steelers. While he managed to pass for 316 yards and two TDs, he did it with a 47.6 completion percentage. It was still enough to procure a 29-23 OT victory.
Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger, Russell Wilson, Aaron Rodgers, Alex Smith and Cam Newton can claim the same success and then some. As can Peyton Manning, who took over the reins in Denver after a poor showing from Brock Osweiler on Sunday.
The same cannot be said for the QBs that remain.
Brian Hoyer, Texans
The Texans wouldn't make this list if T.J. Yates -- who managed to beat the Bengals in 2011 -- was under center, but Brian Hoyer returned in Week 17.
Hoyer completed 62.5 percent of his passes for 249 yards and a TD in Sunday's 30-6 victory over the Jaguars.
A.J. McCarron, Bengals
Even if Andy Dalton was starting for the Bengals, they'd still make this list. An expert in failure, Dalton is 0-4 in the playoffs.
The Bengals will hope A.J. McCarron fares better in his first postseason start.
Kirk Cousins, Washington
Kirk Cousins took the starting job from RGIII. Now, he'll look to do what his counterpart never could: win a playoff game.
Teddy Bridgewater, Vikings
Don't expect Teddy Bridgewater to stay on this list for much longer. The Vikings QB performed amicably under center this season, leading the team to its first playoff berth since 2012.
Carson Palmer, Cardinals
Carson Palmer is 74 years old in QB years -- he's actually 36 -- and he's never won a playoff game.
Much of that has to do with the tearing of his ACL in his first playoff game. It came on his one and only pass. A return in 2009 didn't finish any better, losing to the Jets 24-14.
He'll look for a long-overdue victory in the divisional round of the playoffs.
