If you’ve been missing the NFL, Netflix has the perfect show for you! In a first for the streaming service, Netflix has partnered with the NFL for its new series Quarterback which follows the lives of NFL quarterbacks Patrick Mahomes, Kirk Cousins, and Marcus Mariota across the 2022 NFL season.

Across the show, fans have the chance to follow the three quarterbacks’ unique journeys across the season as they witness the ups and downs of being a quarterback in the league.

In the show, fans get to watch Mahomes and Cousins lead their teams to the postseason. However, due to the Falcons benching Mariota after their Week 14 bye, Mariota receives little screentime on the show after its sixth episode. As such, there are some unanswered questions about the Falcons’ 2022 season that might have you wondering how exactly the season ended for Atlanta!
