AdvertisementSince 2003, the AFC quarterbacks on the NFL’s biggest stage have been Brady, Brady, Roethlisberger, Manning, Brady, Roethlisberger, Manning, Roethlisberger, Brady, Flacco, Manning, Brady, Manning, Brady, Brady, Brady. This season, we’re guaranteed to get either Mahomes or Tannehill in the AFC, and in the NFC, either Brady’s old backup with the Patriots or Rodgers, the only remaining quarterback with Super Bowl playing experience. The clock is ticking loudest for Rodgers, 36, who is 1-2 in conference championship games and understands these opportunities don’t come too often. Mahomes threw for 321 yards and five touchdowns in leading Kansas City to consecutive AFC championships for the first time. He threw for 3,978 yards this season, the most by a 49ers quarterback since Jeff Garcia in 2000.
