6. Eli Manning, Giants

  • 2014: 92.1 QB Rating, 4,410 Yards, 30 TD, 14 INT

There’s no question that stats at the quarterback position is one of high importance. It has to be when dealing in such a high-scoring, high-flying NFL these days.

Despite this, there’s only one stat that actually matters, and Eli Manning is all over it.

Wins and championships is where the quarterback makes his hay. While the wins have been very inconsistent, the idea that Eli has two championships is anything but.

What Manning does better than anybody in the league is this: He elevates his play another 10 levels when the money is on the line. Instead of running around as an average quarterback (like he does at times during the regular season), he transforms himself into a legend in January.

It’s this thriving under a chaotic nature that has Manning in the No. 6 spot. Nobody does it better.
