In the past few weeks we have seen a drop off from the phenomenal passing performances that we saw early in the season.

After the lockout, it appeared that defenses just simply weren't prepared to stop all of the aerial attacks that bombarded the league this season.

Now it is becoming a bit more difficult for quarterbacks to stand out as we close in on the end of the season.

However, it can still be done.

Here are three quarterbacks who will light up the scoreboard this weekend.

 

Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers

This one may seem blatantly obvious, but Rodgers can't be left off this list simply because of who the Packers face this week.

Aaron Rodgers is having one of the best seasons ever for an NFL quarterback. He is currently boasting a 129.1 quarterback passer rating. The record is 121.4 by Peyton Manning.

His 2,619 passing yards, 24 touchdowns and just three interceptions is mind-blowing.

The Packers play the 30th ranked pass defense in Minnesota on Monday Night Football.

Rodgers completed 80 percent of his passes for 335 yards and three touchdowns the first time the teams met this year.

 

Michael Vick, Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles dream season is quickly dying in Philadelphia.

However, it's not completely dead yet. This weekend the Eagles will keep some hope alive when they thrash the Arizona Cardinals.

The Cardinals have the 29th ranked passing defense in the league. They haven't been able to do anything on either side of the ball this year.

Vick and the Eagles haven't been as explosive on offense as they were last season. They will show some signs of brilliance in the department this week.

 

Matt Cassel, Kansas City Chiefs

Matt Cassel and the Chiefs offense has really struggled this year. They show signs of fantastic play, but remain extremely inconsistent.

This week they will face the easiest matchup they have this year. The Denver Broncos have one of the worst pass defenses in the league.

They are allowing opposing quarterbacks to complete 66.3 percent of their passes this year. The only team allowing worse is the Indianapolis Colts.

Dwayne Bowe and Steve Breaston will tear up the Broncos secondary.
