Yesterday there were some big upsets yesterday in College Football, with Iowa, Notre Dame, Oklahoma and Oregon all losing, and Cincinatti almost getting upset by UConn. So it made me think…could this be a weekend of upsets? Will there be some big upsets on Sunday as well?
The stage is set for potential upsets as division foes battle it out today.
-Houston @ Indianpolis – Can the Texans knock off the undefeated Colts at home? This will be the Colts first big test since the Texans are now 5-3.
-Miami @ New England – The Dolphins have played up and down this season, but this would be a major upset if they were to go into Gillette Stadium and pull off a win.
-Carolina @ New Orleans – Some analysts are predicting a potential upset here. I don’t think there’s any chance. I think Drew Brees and the Saints are playing incredible football, and at this rate could be playing for a perfect 19-0 season.
So which of these upsets are most likely to happen? My bet is on Houston to upset Indianpolis. I think New England and New Orleans will win easily. My other upset for the week? My Redskins to shock the Falcons in the Georgia Dome! I know, I have too much faith in my injured and struggling team, but we’re on 2 weeks rest and the Falcons are coming off a short week. It can happen!
