Will Brett Favre fade in 2009? He certainly hasn’t shown any indications as he may be playing the best football of his career (which says a lot). Let’s take a look at where he falls in the rankings, as well as all the other QBs, for Week 13:
- Peyton Manning - Indianapolis Colts - vs. Tennessee
- Matt Schaub - Houston Texans - at Jacksonville
- Tom Brady - New England Patriots - at Miami
- Brett Favre - Minnesota Vikings - at Arizona
- Philip Rivers - San Diego Chargers - at Cleveland
- Aaron Rodgers - Green Bay Packers - vs. Baltimore
- Donovan McNabb - Philadelphia Eagles - at Atlanta
- Tony Romo - Dallas Cowboys - at New York Giants
- Carson Palmer - Cincinnati Bengals - vs. Detroit
- Kurt Warner - Arizona Cardinals - vs. Minnesota
- Jay Cutler - Chicago Bears - vs. St. Louis
- Drew Brees - New Orleans Saints - at Washington
- Ben Roethlisberger - Pittsburgh Steelers - vs. Oakland
- Kyle Orton - Denver Broncos - at Kansas City
- David Garrard - Jacksonville Jaguars - vs. Houston
- Matt Hasselbeck - Seattle Seahawks - vs. San Francisco
- Matt Ryan - Atlanta Falcons - vs. Philadelphia
- Joe Flacco - Baltimore Ravens - at Green Bay
- Vince Young - Tennessee Titans - at Indianapolis
- Eli Manning - New York Giants - vs. Dallas
- Matthew Stafford - Detroit Lions - at Cincinnati
- Alex Smith - San Francisco 49ers - at Seattle
- Ryan Fitzpatrick - Buffalo Bills - vs. New York Jets
- Brady Quinn - Cleveland Browns - vs. San Diego
- Matt Cassel - Kansas City Chiefs - vs. Denver
Peyton Manning versus a team who has allowed over 25 passing TDs on the season? Could there possibly be a better scenario?
Tough matchup or not, how can you not like Aaron Rodgers this week? He’s already surpassed 3,000 yards passing, while throwing for 22 TDs. His three rushing TDs don’t hurt either.
With as bad as the Giants passing defense has been recently, how big of a game could Tony Romo have this week?
Facing the Redskins passing defense certainly knocks Drew Brees down, a lot, as no quarterback had thrown for over 200 yards since Matthew Stafford in Week Three before Donovan McNabb this past Sunday. That includes facing Donovan McNabb (in their first matchup), Tony Romo, Matt Ryan, and Kyle Orton. He’s still usable, but you have to downgrade him a bit.
Will Ben Roethlisberger or Kurt Warner be healthy enough to play? That’s the biggest question surrounding them after missing Week 12. Monitor the news.
Matthew Stafford has been your typical up-and-down rookie quarterback. In Week 11 he throws for five touchdown passes, only to follow it up with four interceptions in Week 12. While you don’t necessarily know what you are going to get, he has a positive matchup against the Bengals, so he’s worth taking your chances against in two-quarterback formats.
What are your thoughts? Who was left off the list? Who should be higher? Who should be lower?
