5 NFL Quarterbacks Who Will Have Bounce-Back Performances In Week 12

Mark J. Rebilas-USA Today Sports

It's that time of week for another fun little slideshow that's sure to get all of you excited for the Week 12 slate of NFL games. For this column I'm going to make predictions on five quarterbacks who will have bounce back performances. It doesn't matter if these QBs had bad performances in real life, fantasy, or real life fantasy. Of course everyone knows there's no real life fantasy, unless you live in the world of Harry Potter. Speaking of Harry Potter, they're writing a new book, which means more movies (my inner nerd is doing backflips). Anyway, back to the subject at hand, yes?

Obviously any quarterback who was involved in a losing performance would be eligible to be on the list for this week, but that doesn't exclude QBs from winning teams either. For example Andy Dalton only had 93 passing yards in a winning effort, so he would be eligible. Of course the Cincinnati Bengals are on their bye this week so we won't be seeing Dalton on here for this week anyway. A few other names that won't be on the list for this week are Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Carson Palmer, and Ben Roethlisberger just to name a few.

Now that we know some names that won't be on the list, how about some that will be? That's why we're all here isn't it? Without any further ado, these five quarterbacks will have nice bounce-back performances in Week 12. As always enjoy the show my friends.

5. Case Keenum

Troy Taormina-USA Today Sports

Case Keenum threw for 170 yards with a TD and INT in the Houston Texans' loss to the Oakland Raiders. His stat line wasn't terrible, but what was really troubling was being benched in favor of Matt Schaub. Was Keenum really that bad? Either way, he'll get the start again this week against a bad Jacksonville Jaguars team.

4. Joe Flacco

Rob Grabowski-USA Today Sports

Joe Flacco wasn't completely terrible in the Baltimore Ravens' loss to the Chicago Bears, but two horrible interceptions gave the Bears 10 easy points. The New York Jets will no doubt provide a tough test, but the Ravens typically fare much better in the friendly confines of M&T Bank Stadium.

3. Matthew Stafford

Jason Bridge-USA Today Sports

Matthew Stafford started out good last week against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but once they figured out how to neutralize Calvin Johnson, Stafford started to crap the bed. The Detroit Lions will be back at home this week against the 2-8 Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a game that could potentially be a fun shootout.

2. Alex Smith

Alex Smith wasn't bad in the Kansas City Chiefs' first loss of the season, but he wasn't that good either completing less then 50 percent of his passes. Luckily for Smith and the Chiefs they return home to Arrowhead to play the San Diego Chargers and their 27th ranked pass defense.

1. Colin Kaepernick

Derick E. Hingle-USA Today Sports

Colin Kaepernick has really been faring well against the better competition in the league. There's hope for Week 12 however as the San Francisco 49ers will be playing a Washington Redskins team that is dead in the water. Personally I think Kaepernick will have the best game out of the other guys I mentioned. In the immortal words of Senator Vernon Trent from Hard To Kill, "You can take that to the bank."
