NFL Teams on Upset Alert for Week 2

Josh Zerkle@JoshZerkleChief Writer IIISeptember 10, 2012

I'm putting five more NFL teams on "Upset Alert!" for Week 2. You can't see me right now, but I'm actually running around my computer, screaming the names of all five teams on Upset Alert this weekend. And no, that's not in the video—but maybe next week!

I'll give you a couple of spoiler picks: Buffalo (for some reason) is favored as it heads to Kansas City. No way! The Bills laid an egg in their first game of the season against the Jets, and now the Chiefs are the underdogs? I don't buy it. 

Here's a team that might surprise you: the New Orleans Saints. The Saints' secondary looked abysmal against Robert Griffin III and the Redskins in Week 1, and while that rookie quarterback deserves a lot of credit, the Saints' secondary deserves a lot of the blame. And now the Saints are favored as they head out on the road to face another dynamic, young quarterback in Cam Newton at Carolina. This sounds like "same chapter, different verse" to me. 

Strap in and check out my video for all of the NFL teams on Upset Alert for Week 2.  Don't forget to leave your own targets for upsets in the comments. Once again, thanks for watching.
