As the Colts defeated the Jaguars going to 14-0 it is obvious that Peyton Manning is the top choice for MVP. Manning is completing almost 70% of his passes and has already thrown for 4,000 yards. With a quarterback rating over 100 on an undefeated team it is hard not to be the MVP. Look for Manning's numbers to decline in the next two weeks as coach Jim Caldwell starts to bench his starters.

Even with the loss to Dallas, New Orleans QB Drew Brees is an easy choice at #2. Brees also has the highest QB rating at 109.4, Brees also has the highest completion %. With 4,130 yards Brees is disappointingly 3rd place in the league. But an astounding 3:1 TD to INT ratio is the reason the Saints are 13-1. Look for Brees to put up big numbers against a struggling Tampa Bay team.

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers has gotten the job done recently leading the bolts to nine straight wins and an 11-3 record. Rivers continues the trend of QB's with ratings over 100, at 102.8 River only trails Favre and Brees in that category. Rivers has thrown for more than 200 yards in all but one game which was a 32-3 beat down of the Broncos. Look for Rivers' numbers to suffer slightly as the chargers play to defensive teams in Tennessee and Washington to close out the season.

Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers joins the over 100 passer rating club with his 102.4 rating. Even with the Packers horrific offensive line allowing 49 sacks Rodgers is still has the best rushing ability among starting QB's. If it wasn't for a 3 interception game vs.TB Rodgers would have only 4 INT's all year. Look for Rodgers to torch to bad NFC West defenses in the following weeks.

Honorable mentions include:Brett Favre, Chris Johnson and Charles Woodson.
