1). Tom Brady, QB, New England Patriots- Not one of his greatest performances, but as per usual he was extremely accurate and got yet another win. A big challenge this week against the Baltimore Ravens who have one of the best defense’s in the NFL.
2). Derek Carr, QB, Oakland Raiders- Did anybody think he would be this good, this quick? Led the Raiders from a big deficit in the second half against the Buffalo Bills. The Raiders have a huge game in Kansas City Thursday night, a win in that one and he might start to challenge for the top spot.
3). Dak Prescott, QB, Dallas Cowboys- A lot of people did not even think Prescott would ever be a starter in the NFL and as a rookie, he just might be a contender to win the MVP.
4). Matthew Stafford, QB, Detroit Lions- The Lions got a great road win in New Orleans last week and are now in control of the NFC North. Stafford was 30-42 for 341 yards and two touchdowns.
5). Matt Ryan, QB, Atlanta Falcons- Ryan played well Sunday until a 2-point conversion attempt that went the other way costing the Falcons the game.
6). Kirk Cousins, QB, Washington Redskins- Cousins has been consistently good all year and was solid in last Sunday’s loss to Arizona.
7). Dree Brees, QB, New Orleans Saints- Had one of the worst games of his career in Sundays home loss to the Lions. Brees threw three interceptions; he stays on the list because he has had a great season up to last week.
8). Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Pittsburgh Steelers- Hot and cold through most of the season up until a couple of weeks ago. Now look for Big Ben too quickly rise in these ranks.
9). Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle Seahawks- Wilson was at his best Sunday night, really when you consider the lack of offensive line play he has played amazingly well all season.
10). Jameis Winston, QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Winston has come into his own the last three weeks, and now the Bucs are contenders to win the NFC South.
