5 NFL Teams on Upset Alert for Week 8

Josh ZerkleChief Writer IIIOctober 22, 2012

We're putting five more NFL teams on Upset Alert for Week 8.

Although the Atlanta Falcons are technically the underdog this week (against a Philadelphia Eagles team that, last time I checked, was not undefeated), the ATL makes the list this week. The Philly defense will give the Falcons a game, but Michael Vick will also give them the ball back at least twice, if the quarterback's turnover trends maintain. 

The San Francisco 49ers are also getting the Upset Alert tag this weekend, as they face an Arizona Cardinals team that matches up well in terms of personnel. The Cardinals could keep the 49ers in a low-scoring affair that will look more like a Big Ten showdown than a battle for the NFC West lead.

And we have at least one Week 7 winner on Upset Alert as well.

To see the rest of our teams, check out the video above, and leave your own teams on alert in the comments below.

Thanks for watching.
