Tony Romo, Joe Flacco on the verge of a big month?

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Three of the NFL's most successful quarterbacks in November could be poised for another big month in 2013.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco have historically been three of the most successful quarterbacks in NFL history during November and could be poised for another big month in 2013.

Romo is 21-4 and a starting quarterback in November, and has the best November winning percentage of any quarterback in the history of the NFL with a minimum of 20 starts. Joe Flacco (17-5) and Tom Brady (33-10) are No. 4 and No. 5 on the all-time list, according to the NFL.

Here's a closer look at the success of quarterback in November and a glance at the month ahead:

Tony Romo

Romo is 21-5 as the Cowboys starting quarterback in November, a month which has easily been his most successful statistically throughout his career. With 6,994 yards passing, a 67 percent completion rate, 58 touchdowns and 16 interceptions and 8.5 yards per pass, the 108.5 quarterback rating during the month easily eclipses September, October and December.

November in the 2013 season won't be a cakewalk for the 4-4 Dallas Cowboys, yet once again it seems that Romo could be prepared for another monstrous month with just one of the four teams on the schedule boasting a winning record.

Nov. 3 -- Minnesota Vikings (1-6); No. 29 pass defense
Nov. 10 -- New Orleans Saints (6-1); No. 10 pass defense
Nov. 24 -- New York Giants (2-6): No. 18 pass defense
Nov. 28 -- Oakland Raiders (3-4); No. 17 pass defense

Joe Flacco

Flacco is 17-5 in November for Baltimore since taking over as starting quarterback his rookie season, and the 3-4 Ravens are desperate for another big month moving forward. Like Romo, Flacco's statistical success matches his team's success in November with career-best 5,200 yards, 29 touchdowns, 10 interceptions and a 93.6 rating during the month.

Unlike Romo, Flacco and the Ravens are looking at a tougher schedule moving forward. A look ahead for the Ravens, who are coming off a bye in Week 8:

Nov. 3 -- Cleveland Browns (3-5); No. 6 pass defense
Nov. 10 -- Cincinnati Bengals (6-3); No. 9 pass defense
Nov. 17 -- Chicago Bears (4-3); No. 27 pass defense
Nov. 24 -- New York Jets (4-4); No. 15 pass defense

Tom Brady

One of the best quarterbacks to ever play the game, Brady has been remarkably consistent from month to month and given the success of the Patriots during his time under center, it's not surprising. November, however, is once again the best statistical month for the quarterback, with a 7.81 average per pass, 64 percent completion rate and a career-high 98.5 rating contributing to his 33-10 record during the month.

The Patriots pass offense has been more subdued in 2013 than in seasons past, and New England has a tough schedule ahead despite playing just three games during November. A look at the month ahead:

Nov. 3 -- Pittsburgh Steelers (2-5); No. 2 pass defense
Nov. 18 -- Carolina Panthers (4-3); No. 11 pass defense
Nov. 24 -- Denver Broncos (7-1); No. 30 pass defense
