Running second behind Rodgers is Patriots QB Tom Brady, who has directed 33 game-winning drives in his illustrious career. He earned 21.0 percent of the responses.

Broncos second-year QB Tim Tebow earned the next most responses, with 16.4 percent of the vote, showing how much he has impressed NFL fans early in his career, with six game-winning drives in his first 12 NFL starts.

Giants QB Eli Manning, who has 23 career game-winning drives, including six this season, placed fourth in the vote with 11.0 percent of the responses.

Rounding out the vote were Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (10.1 percent), Saints QB Drew Brees (8.6) and Jets QB Mark Sanchez (1.0).
