The numbers say Tom Brady no longer is a top-five quarterback. Brady, meanwhile, says only one number matters: the score. All of which is to say, the status of the New England Patriots star is up for discussion. Where does the three-time Super Bowl champion rank among the NFL's signal-callers today?

We enter the final weekend of the NFL season in the same place we were after Week 1 -- with Peyton Manning atop Dan Graizano's weekly MVP watch list. Throwing for an NFL-record 51 touchdown passes tends to have that effect on voters. Does Manning have it all but wrapped up, or could a late season push by another worthy candidate have an impact on the award's outcome? Submit your rankings!

Peyton Manning is still on top in Dan Graziano's weekly MVP watch list despite a loss to the Chargers on Thursday night (that just happened to place Philip Rivers on the list as well). Manning is still on pace to break Tom Brady's record of 50 touchdowns in a single season, but is he still worthy of the top spot? Submit your rankings!
