The mothership listed their top 5 NFL players that have pressure to win a Super Bowl and here is their listing:

5. Mark Sanchez, NYJ4. Joe Flacco, BAL3. Tony Romo, DAL2. Jay Cutler, CHI1. Philip Rivers, SD

Philip Rivers tops their charts for players with the most pressure to win now. Can you really argue against that?

Philip has led a powerful offense for a number of years and was part of the draft class with Ben Roethlisberger and Eli Manning. Both those guys have a pair of championships and Philip is still looking for that first one. He has had high expectations in seasons past, but now those expectations are dropping after missing the playoffs 2 seasons in a row.

The pressure is on Philip to win now. Will he be able to get that championship? Will he even be able to lead this team to the Super Bowl?
