This article ranks the top quarterbacks following the conclusion of the 2012-2013 NFL season. 

There are currently 40 ranking spots based off of the qualifications required for each quarterback, although other quarterbacks that qualify could not make the overly generous cut. 

These rankings do not reflect a player's longevity, but rather focuses on their overall talent and success during the recent season.

These rankings also will not reflect on the entry season rankings for the beginning of the 2013-2014 season.

The stats taken into consideration when determining these rankings include the following: 

- Passing yards, passing touchdowns, interceptions, pass completions, pass attempts, team record, postseason resume and quarterback rating

Other tools and sources used to determine these rankings include NFL.com, StatsLab and the overall outcome of the 2012-2013 season.
