2013 is the year of the safety

This year, the NFL is doing things two points at a time.

Within the opening minutes of NFL action on the first Sunday of the year, we had three safeties. There were 13 safeties all of LAST YEAR in the NFL. Football is back!

First off, the Titans managed to commit a safety on the very first kickoff of the year.

Then, the Jaguars blocked a Kansas City punt, and the ball went through the end zone for another safety, to make for another 2-0 scoreline.

And then, in Jets-Bucs, Josh Freeman couldn't handle a snap, and made sure to boot it out the back of the end zone so nobody could scoop it for a score.

For a very brief time, it appeared the Steelers had managed to have another score, for a rare FOUR TO NOTHING score:

But that safety apparently got overturned. Still:

Safeties are the silliest way to score, and football is great.
