The NFC East quarterbacks looked different five years ago.

The Dallas Cowboys still had Dak Prescott starting under center five years ago. But the New York Giants were led by Eli Manning, the Philadelphia Eagles had Carson Wentz and Nick Foles, and the Washington Commanders were rolling with veteran Alex Smith. 

Five years later, the Commanders are still trying to find their franchise guy. They'll likely start 2022 fifth-round quarterback Sam Howell this year. However, the other two teams -- the Eagles and Giants -- have found their guys through the draft.

Jalen Hurts signed a record-breaking five-year, $255 million contract with $179 million in guaranteed money after leading the Eagles to the Super Bowl, while Daniel Jones also signed a big deal this offseason, a four-year, $160 deal after leading the Giants to their first playoff appearance in six years.

But which NFC East quarterback is the best in the division? Has Howell proved anything yet in one career start? Let's rank the division's starting quarterbacks ranked from worst to best.
