Default Playoff advice needed

I'm in the finals of my league. My team is as follows:

QB - Eli Manning
HB1 - Adrian Peterson
HB2 - Trent Richardson
Flex - Reggie Bush or Mikel Lesure or Jeremy Maclin
WR1 - Vincent Jackson
WR2 - Reggie Wayne
TE - Tony Gonzalez
Def - Texans
K - Whoever has been doing well and is playing in a dome (I usually switch this weekly)

We are only allowed 2 bench spots, which is why I only have 2 backups.

So here's my question:
I won last week, barely, because of Adrian Peterson. Eli almost killed me single handedly. Do I replace him? Here are my options:

1. Andy Dalton (averaging 21.4 points a game this season, last 2 games scored 11.5 and 14.5. Playing away at Pittsburgh. Scored 7.4 points against Pittsburgh, at home, in the last game they played each other this season)

2. Joe Flacco (averaging 19.0 points a game this season, last 2 games scored 19.8 and 17.2. Playing home against the Giants. Giants have been giving up big games recently)

3. Russell Wilson (averaging 17.9 points a game this season, last 2 games scored 12.5 and 43.5. At home against SF. Last time they played the 49ers was on the road and he scored 3.8 fantasy points)

4. Sam Bradford (averaging 16.7 points a game this season, last 2 games scored 17.9 and 33.4. Playing on the road against TB. TB has the 2nd most points given up to opposing qbs in my league this season)

5. Jay Cutler (averaging 14.5 points a game, last 2 games scored 14.5 and 8.9. Playing on the road against Arizona)


For comparison, here are Eli's stats:
Averaging 19.7 points per game. Last 2 scores were 30.1 and 3.1. Playing on the road against Baltimore. Baltimore ranks 8th in least points given up to opposing QBs. The last home games they've given up 16 to Peyton (below his average is 25.2), 17.8 to Pitt, 23.2 to Oakland, 20.3 to Dallas, 13.3 to Cleveland, 21.5 to NE, 6.6 to Cincinatti
