Pardon the hyperbole, but no three opening weeks of any NFL season has matched the 2012 campaign in terms of sheer lunacy. Aside from the replacement refs debacle, parity reigns in the league, with 27 teams posting 2-1 or 1-2 records through the first three weeks.
Furthermore, teams that have been late-night punchlines in years past are starting to post laudable efforts. The Cincinnati Bengals have scored 72 points in their last two games, and the Arizona Cardinals are undefeated.
Meanwhile, the Patriots and Saints are a combined 1-5, with the latter team looking at 0-4 should they lose to the furious Green Bay Packers this weekend.
Week 4 should provide more drama in the form of upsets. Let's take a look at four possibilities this weekend. The team on upset alert will be outside the parentheses.
