The universe is always in a state of chaos. It’s the second law of thermodynamics and the first law of the National Football League, where parity, upsets, and disorder reign supreme. Even when it seems like everything is going according to plan—the Rams clinched the division and the Chiefs clinched the playoffs in Week 14—it takes only one shocking New England loss to remind us that control is an illusion. For those who still cling to the self-delusional belief that we can predict the future, remember that just 11 months ago the Jacksonville Jaguars hosted the Buffalo Bills in a playoff game in which Blake Bortles finished with 87 passing yards and won. This world has no rules.
