5 NFL Teams on Upset Alert for Week 5

Josh ZerkleChief Writer IIIOctober 20, 2016

We're putting five more NFL teams on Upset Alert for Week 5. 

Some teams we wouldn't expect to be favorites if they weren't playing at home. But Minnesota, who has beaten two NFC playoff teams from last season in back-to-back weeks (San Francisco and Detroit), would certainly be favored against most opponents this weekend. Never mind the fact that they face lowly Tennessee, who have only its OT game against Detroit in its win column. However, with Matt Hasselbeck returning under center, we could see a resurgent Titans team with a veteran's presence. 

Another home team that hasn't exactly blown the barn doors off its first few games of the season. Who would have expected Pittsburgh to start the season with only one win in its first three games? The Steelers had two weeks to prepare for Michael Vick and Philadelphia, a 3-1 team that has won their games by a combined margin of four points. 

We have five teams in all for you. To see the rest of our teams on Upset Alert, check out the video above and leave your own teams on Upset Alert in the comments. Thanks for watching.
