Peyton Manning surpassed Dan Marino for the second spot on the NFL's all-time passing yards list with a 414-yard, four-touchdown game against the Cowboys. Jimmy Graham is proving to be one Drew Brees' favorite targets as he leads the league in receiving yards and is just one game shy of setting the record for consecutive 100-yard games for a tight end. Below are the 10 players NFL Nation reporter Dan Graziano has in his weekly MVP watch. Who's tops your list after five weeks of play?

In 2012, Jason Witten posted receiverlike numbers. He was 30. Tony Gonzalez wasn't far behind, at age 36. Will the over-30 club rule the tight end landscape in 2013?
