It’s a long season, NFL fans. Rising to the top is far different from remaining at the top. You want dominance? You’ll have to wait and see. The only real dominance at roughly the midway point of the 2014 season is the media’s consistent ability to pillory or coronate based on incomplete evidence.
Crown a king, the king goes down. Bury an also-ran, they rise from the dead. So, how do you make sense of the NFL’s zeitgeist? Bet against it.
