Best QBs in the NFL lately? Garcia and Ryan

Posted by ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas

If Tampa Bay's Jeff Garcia can play (and that might not be decided until game time) the two best quarterbacks in the NFL over the last five weeks will go head to head in the Georgia Dome.

It might be a little surprising, but as AFC South colleague Paul Kuharsky points out over on his blog, Garcia and Ryan have the best passer ratings in the league over the last five weeks.

Yep, they've been better than Peyton Manning. They've also been way better than Kurt Warner and Drew Brees, who consistently have been mentioned in MVP talk.
