Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs +120
After Mahomes lost to Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals clearly the gap between him and Hurts tightened. Mahomes completed 16-of-27 passes for 223 yards and a touchdown, which resulted in a 98.2 passer rating. He still leads the NFL with 30 passing touchdowns and 3,808 passing yards, but the Chiefs have two more losses than Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles.

Joe Burrow, Bengals +800
The Cincinnati Bengals are back to looking like the team that went to the Super Bowl last season. After starting the year 4-4 through the first eight weeks, they have won four straight games and are now 8-4 on the season, highlighted by their win last week against Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs.
Burrow completed 80.7 percent of his passes for 286 yards with two TDs and no interceptions (a 126.6 passer rating) along with a rushing TD against Kansas City and Ja’Marr Chase is back in the lineup.
Tua Tagovailoa, Dolphins +1200
Tua threw his first interception since Week 4 against a tough 49ers defense last Sunday and the Dolphins were handed their fourth loss of the season. Still, the performance provided mix results, as Tua managed to throw for 295 yards and two touchdowns, but in the end, he tallied his second lowest passer rating of 2022 at 79.7.
Josh Allen, Bills +1200
Thanks to the Chiefs and Dolphins both losing, the Bills moved into the top spot in the AFC standings at 9-3 after beating the New England Patriots last Thursday night. Allen tossed two touchdown passes in the win and called a 106.0 passer rating against the Patriots in Week 13.
