Kickin' Butt and Gettin' Your Butt Kicked

Wow, one week you're coasting to victory and the next week, you're blown out by halftime.

Last Sunday the New York Giants handed it to the Minnesota Vikings 34-13. The week before, while the Vikings were whipping on Tennessee 20-3, the Giants were destroyed at home by the Lions by a score of 28-13. This week, the Lions fell apart at the hands of Dallas 31-21.

On Monday night, the Jets embarrassed the Miami Dolphins 41-14. Last week, the Dolphins earned their first victory with a 31-14 butt-kicking of the Saint Louis Rams. Meanwhile this week the Atlanta Falcons whooped up on the Denver Broncos 41-28 in Denver after last week suffering eight (8) rushing touchdowns during a 10-56 loss at the Kansas City Chiefs. What's going on?

More importantly, what's going to happen? And what does it mean when you get your butt kicked? Does it mean you're due to deliver yourself?

In today's NFL, one week you're dishing it out and the next week you're getting your lumps. This trend doesn't even spare the undefeated. Last week, the Pittsburgh Steelers tacked one loss on the previously undefeated New England Patriots 34-20.

Honestly, I don't know what to expect week to week especially next Monday night. The truth is that anything can happen.

Bleed on,
