The Rams shocked the World by beating the Saints last weekend, and they did it all without quarterback Sam Bradford.

This week there are bound to be more upsets.

Here are three teams to watch out for.


Seattle Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks beat the New York Giants a few weekends back in a huge upset game.

This week they are coming up against the Dallas Cowboys and the match up is very favorable.

The Seahawks are not a great team, but if they can get a lead going into the fourth quarter, than they should be able to force Tony Romo to try to be a super hero, and that is exactly what you want when playing Dallas.

When Romo breaks down mentally because he is trying to do too much, the game is lost for Dallas.


Denver Broncos

The Oakland Raiders are without Darren McFadden, and they are likely going to hand Carson Palmer the start even though he is not prepared to run the offense yet.

The Broncos are not going to win in a flashy manner, they are just going to game plan for Michael Bush and stop the Raiders offense.

Tim Tebow will not run out and dazzle everyone, but the experiment will continue another week, after he gets another win this season.


New York Giants

The New England Patriots were brought down to earth for the second time this season last week to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The New York Giants are a defensive-oriented team, much like the Steelers, that will break down the Patriots line and get to Tom Brady.

This season has been a rough one for Tom, especially when it has come to dealing with the rush. The Patriots have only lost two games, but both of them started and stopped with Brady.
