With Monday Night Football closing out the NFL’s week four games, there’s been plenty of disappointment.
While some of the disappointment comes from teams with shocking losses, others come from how players are performing.
But with underwhelming play coming in week four, it’s hard to narrow down who was the worst.
However, three NFL players stand out the most from week four with disappointing games.
So who are the three players that underwhelmed fans in week four?
3. Baker Mayfield
Baker Mayfield came to the Carolina Panthers as the one hope for Matt Rhule to keep his job.
However, he’s been a disappointment for the team.
In fact, his week four performance follows a string of disappointing starts from the former first-round pick.
His latest underwhelming performance saw him throwing two interceptions.

While good defensive awareness is to thank for one interception, it doesn’t negate the fact his turnover cost the team points.
He also passed for under 200 yards against the Arizona Cardinals, something that’s also dragging him down this season.
His completion percentage wasn’t great either, as he was barely above 60% for the game.
However, poor game play has been Mayfield’s M.O. this season, as he only has one game with over 200 passing yards.
While Sunday’s game was underwhelming, it’s nothing new for him during the 2022 NFL season.
2. Justin Fields
When the Chicago Bears got Justin Fields in the 2021 NFL Draft, fans were happy.
However, his latest performance is leaving fans with questions.
While he’s getting more passing attempts, his completion percentage is tanking.
He finished Sunday’s game against the New York Giants 11 for 22, both season highs.

With the completions and pass attempts being high points, it’s the completion percentage that’s underwhelming.
During the preseason, Fields’ accuracy was fair.
However, when you complete only 50% of your passes, you won’t survive long in the NFL.
To make matters worse, he’s been working with the former QB coach for Aaron Rodgers.
Bears fans and Fields should see more of a passing game than a running game.
But Luke Getsy is holding Fields back in games instead of unleashing him.
However, with Fields missing his receivers on Sunday, he might see fewer passing plays yet again.
1. Lamar Jackson
The man playing for a large contract posted his worst passing game in a while.
Against a Buffalo Bills defense missing several important secondary players, he only had one passing TD and 144 passing yards.
He was also held to one of the worst yards per attempt averages in 2022.
Lamar Jackson was 4th in the NFL with 18 pass attempts of 20+ yards entering Week 4
Bills defensive shape + Weather dropped his air yards per attempt to 4.7 in Week 4, second lowest in the NFL
only above Ryan Tannehill

He also threw two costly interceptions late in the game, making things worse for the team.

However, if he wants an outrageous contract with guaranteed money, he’ll need to improve his passing game over this performance.
While he did well running the ball, as he led the team in rushing yards, he’s the team’s QB.
If he gets off track with the passing game, it will lead to problems.
People won’t take him seriously as a QB if he continues down this path of being a better rusher than a passer.
