With the use of Pro Football Focus' play-by-play grading over the 2017 season, as well as a look back into the PFF grading archives, we ranked the rosters of both teams from top to bottom -- all 106 players -- and combined them, focusing heavily on each player's performance over the 2017 season.
No. 1 on the list, yet again, is a quarterback with five Super Bowl rings:
1. Tom Brady, QB
PFF grade: 94.9 | Position rank: 1
Brady remains the best quarterback in the game despite being 40 years old. He again finished as the top-ranked QB in PFF and has the league's highest passer rating when under pressure.
