The AFC East now is full of young quarterbacks following the departure of Tom Brady from the New England Patriots after 20 years, and now the debate about who the best young QB is has begun.

While Sam Darnold and Josh Allen know what to expect of NFL competition, second-year quarterback Jarrett Stidham will be taking over the reins of the New England offense while rookie Tua Tagovailoa likely will be running the Miami Dolphins offense.

In his list of the top 40 quarterbacks heading into 2020, NBC Sports' Chris Simms surprisingly ranked Stidham over Tagovailoa, who isn't even on the list. Simms explained his ranking in an interview with WEEI's Ordway, Merloni and Fauria.
