In Week 10 alone, Michael Vick went off for six total touchdowns on Monday Night Football, while Tom Brady led the Patriots to a huge victory over the Steelers in Pittsburgh. Vick has been battling injury so far this year but when healthy, Vick has been dominant with his arm (11 touchdowns, zero interceptions) and his legs (four touchdowns, 341 yards rushing) and has a league-best 115.1 QB rating.
Brady is fourth in the NFL with 17 touchdown passes and has thrown just four picks in nine games.
Philip Rivers leads the league with 2,944 passing yards and is tied with Eli Manning for most touchdowns with 19. He's on pace to break NFL records despite his Chargers being just 4-5 and 0-2 against divisional opponents. He's thrown for more than 300 yards in five of nine games (including two games of at least 400 yards) and has been held to one passing touchdown in just two games all year.
Peyton Manning has been typical Peyton Manning, and he's winning alone, as there are some reliable targets M.I.A. in Indy this year. Manning has 16 touchdowns and a 93.9 QB rating and has been playing without his longtime safety net, tight end Dallas Clark, who is done for the season with a wrist injury. Former first-round pick Anthony Gonzalez is also on injured reserve with a bum knee while second-year wide receiver Austin Collie is still out after sustaining a concussion just weeks ago.
