It might be a bit early, but it is Tuesday and Week 13 technically starts in two days.
For these last five weeks I'll be picking five upsets I think will go down. I can only hope they all pan out because I don't want to have to give my bookie my kidney.
No. 5 Upset:
Falcons beat the Eagles at home.
This might not be a massive upset, but I'm not picking the Browns this week, so I have to make due. Without "Matty Ice" the Falcons almost lost to the Bucs. Yes, Josh Freeman is panning out nicely, but they are still the Bucs.
At home, I think the must-win attitude will provide for a Falcons win...somehow, some way. Lest we forget these Eagles lost to the Raiders.
No. 4 Upset:
Ravens beat the Packers in Lambeau.
Well, the Ravens did beat the Steelers, but that was a Dixon-lead team, and this game's in Lambeau, and the packers are a wild-card team right now.
I foresee seven sacks. Yes, write it down...seven.
Ravens get an INT return for a TD helping them win 23-21.
No. 3 Upset:
Chiefs beat the Broncos in Kansas.
Call it bandwagoning, but Cassell has been on fire lately, and the Broncos' winning a game doesn't change my mind. They lost to the Redskins. No excuses!
No. 2 Upset:
Lions beat the Bengals.
Cincinnati is one of those teams that brings it all against the best competition, and plays down to their low-level competition.
Recall the Cleveland game earlier in the season? Those Lions are hungry for that big time third win. I think they get it here, while the Bengals have no pressure to win at all.
No. 1 Upset:
Titans beat Peyton Manning and the undefeated Indianapolis Colts.
Yes, I'm jumping on the Brett Kern bandwagon, and Chris Johnson will run for 300 yards. Quite honestly, though, the Colts have been getting wins from behind these last few weeks. Something tells me the Titans won't be giving up a fourth-quarter lead.
