The Browns, Cowboys, and Redskins will all pick up upset wins this week.

Here are the reasons these teams will come out on top.

Cleveland Browns

The Browns will get a win because of their strong defensive play and will contain Alex Smith and the 49ers offense in the process.

Frank Gore will still have a strong game but is not going to rule the field and will be stopped enough that Colt McCoy will get a win for his Browns.

Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys are coming up against a disappointing Philadelphia Eagles team this Sunday. Dallas needs to translate their strong play in recent games into a complete effort and this means that they have to keep Tony Romo within himself.

If Romo tries to act like a gunslinger then this game will slip out of their reach.

This however will not be the case. Romo has learned from his recent antics and will play his game well and not try to be the next Brett Favre.

Washington Redskins

The Redskins are a hard team to pick due to their quarterback controversy. Rex Grossman led the Redskins early and Washington was able to get off to a strong start.

Things started to get shaken up and now the Redskins are looking to show they have life left.

The Bills have had a steady, strong start and just signed Ryan Fitzpatrick to a new deal. The game is being played in Toronto and things just seem to be set up for the Bills to get taken down.

The Redskins will be able to move the ball well against a Bills defense that has been sub par this season so far.
