We enter the final weekend of the NFL season in the same place we were after Week 1 -- with Peyton Manning atop Dan Graizano's weekly MVP watch list. Throwing for an NFL-record 51 touchdown passes tends to have that effect on voters. Does Manning have it all but wrapped up, or could a late season push by another worthy candidate have an impact on the award's outcome? Submit your rankings!

Peyton Manning is still on top in Dan Graziano's weekly MVP watch list despite a loss to the Chargers on Thursday night (that just happened to place Philip Rivers on the list as well). Manning is still on pace to break Tom Brady's record of 50 touchdowns in a single season, but is he still worthy of the top spot? Submit your rankings!

Peyton Manning is still on top in Dan Graziano's weekly MVP watch list. Some questioned Manning's ability to perform in cold weather after a sub-par performance against the Patriots, but a four-touchdown game in sub-20 degree weather against the Titans has put a temporary halt to any such doubts. Is Manning the NFL's best player this season?

Drew Brees threw for 392 yards and contributed 20 first-down passes to the Saints' NFL single-game record 40 first downs in a rout of the Cowboys. Peyton Manning's 330 yards in a win over the Chargers gave him 3,249 total yards on the season -- a record for the most passing yards through the first nine games. Both have proved to be worthy of MVP honors, but whose play has stood out more? Below are the 10 players NFL Nation reporter Dan Graziano has in his weekly MVP watch.
