Posts Tagged ‘NFL Upset of the Week’

This has to be one of the strangest first quarters of football in NFL history. Usually the upsets begin to subside after the first two weeks, and the teams that should win begin to find ways to do just that. And in the AFC, things are playing out pretty much as expected, for the most […]


Okay, I’m back after taking last week off. Given the choice of taking another crack at picking winners in a league full of upsets or spending the weekend with the oldest grandkids, it was a no-brainer. While I was gone, several teams in the league also took the week off. Among them were three of […]


Picking winners in the first week of an NFL season is usually about as easy as guessing how many marbles can fit into a five-gallon jug. The best you can do is offer up an educated guess and hope you’re not too far off. Well this season is no different. There were several upsets along […]


I’ve decided to bring back a weekly post this season, after putting it on hold last season. Okay let’s be real, I put the entire blog on hold for the last year or so. But I’m back with new energy, and so is the “Games of the Week”. Each week I will pick one game […]


By now, Bears fans everywhere should be hoping that I pick the lowly team from Chicago to lose. This season, that simple act has guaranteed victory for da’ Bears every time. Sorry Bears fans.

Okay, I give up. Just when you think you’ve got this league figured out, it all gets turned upside down again. For example, I figured that Rivers and the Chargers had enough offensive power to go to Miami and give the Dolphins a good battle, leaving town as the victor. The problem is, the Chargers […]


Last week was one for the record books. The Redskins start their third string QB and beat the Cowboys on the road and the Saints decided to finally play some football and ran over (literally) the Packers, handing me a loss in the Lock and the Upset categories. The only one I got right was […]


Well, I was watching the games last week, feeling pretty good about my predictions when POOF, they disappeared in an instant. A late interception here, a last minute field goal there, and I went from a perfect 3-0 to a measly 1-2 at the snap of a finger or two! So will it get any […]


My ego took a bruising last week, dropping two of my three picks, thanks to the NFC East remaining as unpredictable as ever. Maybe I’ll give that division a week off for bad behavior. I’m not sure things will improve this week, though. Have you looked at the schedule? I don’t see any of the […]
