No longer competitive

"Since that game is no longer competitive, we're going to take you to a much better match-up."

Words a Vikings fan would have expected the FOX studio host to say as the Purple People Eaters got crushed. Not something you expect when things are going your way, while the Vikes were winning 41-10 at the start of the 4th Quarter.

But that seems to be the way things go in the NFL these days. Parity reigns. Only a couple of teams are honestly good (Patriots, I'm looking at you). But for fans of lowly teams like the Vikes, you know you can blow out somebody once in a while, which is strangely satisfying when such a pathetic team wins.
