Indianapolis Colts quarterback Philip Rivers will be looking to prove many analysts wrong in 2020 after going through what was one of his worst seasons from an efficiency standpoint.

On a one-year deal with the Colts, Rivers will be running the offense. Chris Simms of NBC Sports went through his top-40 quarterback rankings for the 2020 season. Rivers came in at No. 17.

Rivers is coming off of a season that included 20 interceptions and a 3.9% interception rate. Both of which are the second-highest marks in his career.

But with an elite offensive line, a stout rushing attack and some promising weapons around him, Rivers has everything he needs to make a comeback with the Colts.

In the divisions, Deshaun Watson led the way at No. 4 followed by Ryan Tannehill at No. 11. Rivers followed those two while Jaguars second-year quarterback Gardner Minshew came in at No. 30.
