Many of the AFC's so-called heavyweights lost Sunday but the biggest loss came in New England, where the Patriots will likely be without quarterback Tom Brady the rest of the season.
Some would call it karma for the Patriots' apparent running up of the score last season during their march to a 16-0 season.
But really, the Super Bowl they didn't win was that.
Brady's knee injury is more about what happens in football.
Not long after Brady went down, Ben Roethlisberger took a shot from Amobi Okoye at the end of the first half that could have knocked him out for the season.
That's why you don't cheer about those kind of things. Don't mess with karma.

The pass blocking was mostly OK, but Marvel Smith had his hands full with Mario Williams – not that most tackles don't.
