Week 10 Top 10 Quarterbacks

1) Kurt Warner (ARZ vs. SF)- Warner remains one of the top passing threats in the league. You can count on him to throw for at least 275 yards and 2 TD's each week with a strong possibility for more. He's kept his interceptions down in recent weeks and that should continue against SF.

2) Drew Brees (NO @ ATL)- Look for Brees to put up his usual big numbers this week against divisional rival Falcons. He's thrown for 300+ yards in six of his last seven games and should be well rested coming off the BYE week.

3) Philip Rivers (SD vs. KC)- Despite the Chargers recent struggles Rivers has still managed to put up solid numbers in his last 3 games. He's averaged 285 yards and thrown 8 TD's during that stretch. Look for another solid performance against the Chiefs.

4) Aaron Rodgers (GB @ MIN)- Expect the Packers to throw the ball frequently against the Vikings stout run defense in this crucial NFC North game. Rodgers will certainly be given the opportunity to gain consecutive 300+ yard games for the first time in his NFL career.

5) Jake Delhomme (CAR @ OAK)- With the Panthers coming off a bye week and facing a terrible Oakland team there are a lot of things to like about Delhomme in week 10. Oakland can't stay on the field offensively so the Panthers should have the ball for a good chunk of the day. Minus a terrible week 6 @ TB, Jake has been pretty consistent this year.

6) Peyton Manning (IND @ PIT)- This is not the greatest match up for Peyton, in fact it is terrible. However he has looked better in recent weeks and you never know when he may blow up for a huge game. I don't expect it to happen this week, but he's still Peyton Manning.

7) Chad Pennington (MIA vs. SEA)- Is Chad ("He's a passer, not a thrower") Pennington really in a top 10 list? After averaging 293 yards in his last 4 games and having a favorable match up against a terrible Seattle passing defense (that is giving up 258 passing yards a game), I had to throw him in here. He may not throw numerous TD's this week ,but he'll be efficient.

8) Donovan McNabb (vs. NYG)- Like Peyton Manning, this isn't a great match up for McNabb as he faces one of the leagues top defenses. With that said, I like that he is coming off a game where he threw 349 yards and will have the home crowd on his side. I expect him to step up in this big NFC East game.

9) Jay Cutler (DEN @ CLE)- Cutler came back down to Earth in October (only averaging 195 yards per game) after an incredible September where he averaged 318 yards/game . His November got off to a good start last week w/ a 307 yard 2-TD performance against Miami (although he did throw 3 picks). He'll put up solid yardage against Cleveland, and will have a great game if he can keep those turnovers down.

10) Matt Ryan ( vs NO)- Ryan has had his ups and downs in his rookie campaign, but should have a good game against a below average Saints secondary. "Matty-Ice" doesn't throw a lot of TD's but could be a good option this week in a game I think has potential to be a shoot-out.

( If you don't get the "Chad ("He's a passer, not a thrower") Pennington" reference please watch:
