Pete Prisco lists the NFL's most-underrated and overrated players (and also team-by-team). He has Fred Taylor as the most-underrated and Brian Urlacher as the most-overrated. Everyone talks about the Madden curse, but I think Urlacher might be the first annual victim of the Paris Hilton curse.
Just in case Sunday night did not make it clear, defense rules the NFL in 2016. The best teams in overall DVOA all combine top-five defenses with below-average offenses. The Eagles now lead the league in both defense and special teams and are back to No. 1 overall.
