Finishing up our starting QB power rankings, it is time to turn to the elite of the NFL with numbers 8 to 1

8) Ben Roethlisberger

Big Ben and the Steelers really should at least have a record of 3-1, or possibly even 4-0 rather than 2-2. Roethlisberger has led an offense, that for long stretches of games, has been completely dominant and has just generally looked like a really good quarterback so far in 2014.

7) Philip Rivers

Rivers is carrying this Chargers team currently. San Diego are playing ringers at center and essentially have no running game and yet Rivers is still churning out win after win for his team.

With his match winning performance against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Rivers set another career best. Against the Jaguars “he posted a 130.0 passer rating, eclipsing the
120.0 barrier for the third consecutive game which ties the longest stretch of his career”.

For a player that looked like his career was over a few seasons back, Rivers isn't doing too bad at all.

6) Matt Ryan

Along with Andrew Luck, Matt Ryan has probably been the hottest arm in the NFL this season. His 448 yards in week one against the New Orleans Saints was sensational. Ryan then is a QB on the rise but he hasn't yet convinced that he has top five talent. He's getting there though.

5) Matthew Stafford

I'm bullish on the Detroit Lions this year. I think Stafford looks fitter and healthier than he ever has; witness his rushing touchdown last weekend. With the offensive weapons Stafford now has at his disposal I think he has taken a big step up this season.

4) Russell Wilson

Russell Wilson does not get the credit he deserves. Despite winning the Superbowl last season, many if not most, see him as an effective game manager and nothing more.

In truth though Wilson is now one of the top QB's in the NFL. He does have a great supporting cast around him but even so his ability to make plays under pressure his hugely impressive.

3) Andrew Luck

If only he had a better supporting case the Colts would be legitimate Superbowl candidates. As it is Luck simply has to make do with the talent at his disposal. So far this
season he has thrown for 1305 yards including three games for over 300 yards.

He seems to be managing just fine.

2) Peyton Manning

The Broncos offense hasn't quite been as explosive this season. It is not going to be setting record after record as it did last year but this doesn't really matter. Peyton Manning is still a great QB.

His team may have lost the match in the end but Manning's game tying drive against the Seahawks in week three was a thing of beauty. Other than Aaron Rodgers, or maybe Drew Brees if he was at home, no other player currently active in the NFL could have done that.

1) Aaron Rodgers

If your life was on the line and you had to pick one current NFL QB to win a game you'd pick Aaron Rodgers. He's the best in the business right now.
