After months of anticipation it seemed like Week 1 of NFL action lived up to the hype. We had one amazing rookie debut thanks to RGIII (along with few terribleâ€”yes you, Brandon Weeden). Peyton Manning showed that a season-long layoff had no effect on his incredible arm and Adrian Peterson proved he hasn't really lost a step either.
If Week 1 proved anything it wasn't so much about if you won or loss but how you did it. Do the teams that eked out a victory against sub-par squads deserve a spot above those that lost to legitimate contenders? Does RGIII's ridiculous performance mean he'll lead the 'Skins to the Super Bowl and be a candidate for regular season MVP? Will we have to hear loudmouth Rex Ryan brag about his team's offensive prowess all year? We don't have a crystal ball but we'll do our best to separate the contenders from the pretenders in Week 2 of Complex NFL Power Rankings.
