Welcome back sports fans. Last week saw the continuous rise of the Chiefs, while the Seahawks continue to trickle by average teams. Aaron Rodgers fractured his collarbone (see below) and the Bears capitalised on it. The Pats notched up 55 points against the Steelers and the Colts came from behind to heap more pressure on the Texans.
This week, Matt will be looking at some of the league's best quarterbacks and predicting the games ahead in week 10.
5. Tom Brady
The main man in Foxborough has had a relatively consistent season to date, with a huge jump in quality in week 9 against Pittsburgh. With a new offence to pass to, it's not been an easy transition, yet Brady has the Patriots competing at the top of the AFC yet again.
4. Andrew Luck
The Colts are 6-2 and almost a shoe in for the AFC South at this stage, an early stage. This is no easy division, but after an impressive rookie season, Andrew Luck has really found his feet in with Indianapolis and quite recently, with T. Y Hilton. Expect to see this axis flourish as the season continues.
3. Drew Brees
The Saints have been a force to be reckoned with this term. A lot of this can be put down to the return of Sean Payton, but the fact remains that Brees is the one putting up the numbers. He and his coach certainly know how to anticipate each others next move and that makes New Orleans one of the best offences in the league.
2. Aaron Rodgers
I cannot emphasise this enough. Aaron Rodgers' collarbone fracture could cost the Packers their season. Rodgers has carried this team, much like Brady has done for the Pats this year. With countless injuries adding up, Rodgers was keeping things ticking along for Green Bay. With Chicago and Detroit nipping at their heels, the NFC North is wide open and Rodgers can't get back quick enough. Arguably the league's best, if not for the number one's stats so far…
1. Peyton Manning
Without doubt, Manning is the superior brother in his family, but he does face competition from Brees and Rodgers for his title as the league's best QB. Denver have been the team to beat and it's a tribute to their quality that even though Kansas are 9-0 and Denver are 8-1, Denver are still considered the league's best team. A lot of this is down to Peyton Manning and his supporting cast on offence. Expect a tricky tie this week against San Diego, where his former offensive coach Mike McCoy's team will look to upset the coach less Denver.
