At ESPN Insider, we looked at the very real 14-game slump Aaron Rodgers has had dating back to last season. History shows for a great quarterback in his prime, this type of slump is most unusual, and it usually takes a change of health, scenery or a new head coach to snap out of it. For Rodgers, a new coach may be the only realistic option, and that just so happens to be the same change Brett Favre needed in Green Bay to get back to playing at a high level.

A Detroit collapse is also Tennessee's biggest rally in a decade. Also: Is Kirk Cousins really to blame for Washington's slow start, and did Tyler Boyd really fumble in Pittsburgh?

Jack Del Rio's 2-point decision nips the Saints. Also: Matthew Stafford gets the ball last this time against Andrew Luck, the biggest comeback in Kansas City history, a lot of missed field goals, and some sad fourth-down ALEX.

The first game of 2016 ended much like the last game of the 2015 season. We look at how instrumental Trevor Siemian was (or wasn't) in the 10-point comeback, as well as the game management that doomed Carolina in the fourth quarter.

If you think the NFL product has been lacking in recent years, you are not alone. Just consider the age of the players. Kevin Clark of The Ringer has an interesting piece on the concern of more young players entering the league, fewer older players making rosters, and what effect that can have on the fundamentals of football. Our snap-weighted age metric is mentioned as the average age of rosters has gradually decreased from 27.2 in 2006 to a record-low 26.6 in 2015. There is also an interesting story of Baltimore coach John Harbaugh approaching DeMaurice Smith, the head of the NFLPA, at Tray Walker's funeral in March to express his dismay with the NFL's current rules for offseason contact between coaches and players.
