The former quarterback and longtime ESPN analyst updated his QB rankings from the offseason and placed the two-time Super Bowl MVP at No. 3, sliding him up two spots.
Entering Week 5, Manning is 103 of 160 passing for 1,320 yards with seven touchdowns and four interceptions.
“Manning made a poor decision against the Eagles by throwing a costly interception in the end zone, but he otherwise has been very solid all season,” Jaworski wrote. “With Hakeem Nicks sidelined and Ahmad Bradshaw also missing time, the Giants’ offense has been shorthanded, and Manning has raised his game to compensate. Whether it’s Ramses Barden or someone else stepping into the Giants’ scheme, he doesn’t miss a beat. He continues to improve in all phases of the game — particularly with his pre- and post-snap decisions and his accuracy. I don’t think the Giants would stand at 2-2 without Manning’s strong early play.”
Aaron Rodgers finished at the top, followed by Tom Brady as runner up. Peyton Manning and Drew Brees rounded out the top five. As for the NFC East, Tony Romo and Michael Vick went back-to-back at 11 and 12, respectively, while rookie Robert Griffin III came in at No. 17.
