<P>2. Drew Doug Gilmour Jersey Brees, QB, New Orleans Saints (2): The questionable call on Ahmad Brooks aside, Brees was nothing short of brilliant Sunday against a relentless 49ers defense. Coincidently, Brees and Manning finished with essentially identical numbers in the box score, but Brees came up with a clutch drive when his team needed it, lifting the Saints to a 23 20 victory and putting them in the driver's seat for the No. 2 seed in the NFC with a matchup in Seattle looming. He'll need some help from Manning, but Brees remains very much in the mix at the top of this list and has the marquee games left on the schedule needed to close the gap.</P>
<P></P>
<P>3. Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle Seahawks (3): Wilson shouldn't be ashamed to be a place holder behind Manning and Brees given the way they have played, but he deserves credit in his own right. At the helm of the conference leading Seahawks, Wilson has a passer rating only behind Manning and Brees among QBs who have started every game, and his per attempt average is higher than that of Brees a testament to his efficiency. All this despite an offense line that is a disaster Wilson has been sacked more than twice as many times as Manning despite being infinitely more elusive.</P>
<P></P>
<P>1. Peyton Manning, QB, Denver Broncos (1): Manning needs 16 touchdowns in his final six games to get to Tom Brady's single season mark of 50. That's about 2.7 per game, which happens to Dion Phaneuf Kids Jersey be below what Manning is already averaging this season (3.4 per game to be exact). In other words, an average Manning stretch which, to be fair, would be extraordinary for most anyone else should get him there. And to give you an idea of how other worldly Manning has been this year, Doug Gilmour Youth Jersey he actually can throw for 40 yards fewer per game than his average this season over the final six games and still catch Drew Brees for the single season yardage mark.</P>
<P></P>
<P>1. Watt, DL, Houston Texans (2): The first big shakeup on the board belongs to the most dominating defensive player in football. While Justin Houston was flailing around in Mile High, unable to get after Peyton Manning, Watt was in Oakland being his usual monstrous self, finishing with two sacks and five tackles. Watt leads Dion Phaneuf Youth Jersey the No. 1 unit in pass defense and overall yards their poor rank in scoring defense has, at least in part, to do with Houston quarterbacks and their affinity for pick sixes. Watt is the heart and soul of this team, and has kept a really good defense together even in a difficult season.</P>

<P>2. Justin Houston, OLB, Kansas City Chiefs (1): The Pro Football Focus grade belies Houston's impact (or lack thereof) on last Sunday's game. Houston was outstanding against the run, but he was, after all, playing Peyton Manning. Not being able to impact the game as a pass rusher in a game where your team needed you to do just that is disappointing, and with the way Watt has been playing this season, even one down week is too much to overcome. That being said, the margin between the two remains small. Another big week against the Chargers could put Houston right back at the top.</P>
