Analytics Number for Comparison

So, yesterday evening I noticed a drop off of around 15% of our traffic in analytics.  I've tried everything I can to investigate why, but haven't discovered anything.  


I'm not sure that is related to this problem, but, I currently pull up today's number.  And I see one number

I then try to evaluate what might be going on by comparing to the previous week, and I see a number more inline with what I'd expect.  Any clue what might be going on?

To sum up, when I just pull up today's numbers so far, it puts the unique pageviews at 15,471, but when i immediately compare those number to a previous date, the unique pageviews says 20,726.


What is going on here?
