There were three preseason NFL games featured on Thursday. The Tampa Bay Bucs played the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Buffalo Bills played the Philadelphia Eagles, and the Baltimore Ravens played the Miami Dolphins. All potential starting quarterbacks for their respective teams saw action except Joe Flacco of the Ravens. Let's rank the performances of each quarterback from Thursday's games.

1. Jameis Winston-Tampa Bay

#Jameis Winston had a strong showing by completing 21 of 29 passes for 196 yards. He did not complete any touchdown pass as Doug Martin had the lone touchdown score. Winston did not need to rush once. He connected on passes with Mike Adams for 57 yards.

It was a step in the right direction for their franchise quarterback.

2. Carson Wentz-Philadelphia

#Carson Wentz did not seem as much action as Winston but was accurate when he played. Wentz completed 6 of 9 passes for 56 yards. For his limited time, he had a quarterback rating of 83.6. Matt McGloin played more of the snaps, but Wentz had a better rating by about 30 points.

3. Blake Bortles-Jacksonville

Blake Bortles is going to have to prove himself this season. He has been a turnover machine, but in this game, Bortles was an accurate passer with no turnovers. Bortles was 8 of 13 for 65 yards. However, the Jaguars scored no points. Chad Henne came into relieve Bortles as both had combined to throw for 93 yards entering the fourth quarter.

4. Ryan Mallett-Baltimore

Flacco did not see any action with the Ravens.

Mallet, the presumed backup, threw for 113 yards, one touchdown pass, and two interceptions. Mallett connected with Larry Donnell one a one-yard pass as the Ravens were thumping the Dolphins. Josh Woodrum receives an honorable mention as he was 8 out 10 for 110 yards. Woodrum could give Mallet a run for his money if he keeps playing like this.

5. Jay Cutler-Miami

Cutler only threw six passes and completed three of them. He only threw for 24 yards. Cutler is likely still learning the system, which is why David Fales and Matt Moore received time as well. It wasn't a terrible outing for Cutler, but it certainly wasn't anything to brag about either.

6. Tyrod Taylor-Buffalo

How hard has it been for Taylor lately? The Bills trade away his number one wide receiver in Sammy Watkins to the Los Angeles Rams. Then, he goes out and throws two interceptions against the Eagles. Taylor was 8 of 18 for 53 yards. His quarterback rating was just 12.0. Taylor's days might be numbered in Buffalo. #Jay Cutler
