Don't jump to conclusions over just one week, but Peyton Manning's Week 1 struggles echoed some of the negative trends from his second-half decline in 2014. And if Peyton isn't the Peyton of old, then that Denver offensive line is a bigger problem than we thought.

Each year that ESPN has done its #NFLRANK list of the top 100 players in the NFL, Football Outsiders has provided an audit that lists players we think are overrated and underrated on that list. Here's our audit for 2015, starting with the high probability that Adrian Peterson is no longer the top running back in the game. Also overrated: Joe Haden and Joe Staley. Underrated: Andrew Whitworth, Josh Sitton, and Connor Barwin.

Our annual rankings for NFL teams' under-25 talent has the Cowboys on top thanks to a well-executed plan for the offensive line. The Seahawks again rank 32nd, as their last few young stars just turned 25.

Pittsburgh's Martavis Bryant is this year's No. 1.
