It took six weeks, but a new quarterback is at the top of the contender charts.
The combination of Peyton Manning’s uneven performance in a loss to the Philadelphia Eagles and emergence of a little known wide receiver named Seyi Ajirotutu landed San Diego’s Philip Rivers as the closest contender to the throne of Drew Brees.
Rivers’ performance on the road at Houston further amplified his strong 2010 campaign and shook up the Top 10 as both Manning and Tom Brady were knocked from the one and two positions on the chart.

DREW BREES, NEW ORLEANS SAINTS (94.7)
THE TOP 10
Dropped out: Matt Schaub, Vince Young
We’ve learned one pretty simple lesson over the last three weeks; the Dallas Cowboys defense represents every quarterback’s dream. The Cowboys pass defense ranks dead last in opponent passer rating. The opposing quarterback sports a QB rating of 109.1 when they see the Dallas star.
Dallas’ play significantly impacted these rankings over the past three weeks. David Garrard, Aaron Rodgers, and Eli Manning all took sizable jumps in the rankings thanks to their meetings with the Cowboys.
THE JOB SQUAD – THE BOTTOM 10
Dropped out: Bruce Gradkowski
Not much changed with the Job Squad this week. However, the ongoing McNabb-Shanahan saga will likely rear its head again when the Eagles take on the Redskins to close Week 10.
