Sports & Swag’s 2016 Football Preview: Top 10 NFL Quarterbacks

Despite the fact there are fewer elite QB’s in today’s NFL, it’s very difficult to win big without one. That is, unless you have an elite defense like the Denver Broncos had last season.

The Sports & Swag Football Preseason Spectacular starts off its NFL previews with a stop in the NFC West. Over the last several seasons the NFC West has been a two team division. The San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks dominated not only the division, but the entire NFC with both teams playing in each of the last three Super Bowls.
