Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Sunday, January 17, 2021

I’m not saying I’m psychic, but:

Take the Jets’ upset 17-14 win at San Diego today, and add the Colts’ easy-breezy 20-3 victory over Baltimore, and you’ve got the karmically-engineered rematch I predicted:

All I know is that the ultimate boomerang effect looms: A possible postseason rematch with the Jets — who wouldn’t have even gotten to the playoffs if not for Indy’s virtual forfeit — and an upset win by New York. That’ll teach future juggernauts to bypass a perfect season on the way to a Super Bowl shot.

And here it is. Had the Colts not let New York wriggle out of a sure loss back on December 27th, the Jets wouldn’t even be going to Indy next Sunday for a chance to beat their indirect playoff benefactors fair and square. There’s no reason to think another upset is in the works; but then, there’s no reason to think that this improbable scenario would even have occurred.

Extrapolating even further: If the Jets do win, and Minnesota wins the NFC title game over New Orleans (which I think they will), Gang Green will be positioned to take revenge on Brett Favre, who took them for a rather pointless ride last season at quarterback. In other words, the Colts allowed the Jets into the postseason in order to ruin everyone’s aspirations this year.

Really incredible. It’s stuff like this that makes me wonder if the entire National Football League isn’t a scripted effort…
