It's nearly impossible to correctly predict any full week from any sporting organization in the world.

Even when you have all the confidence in a team, there is still that chance that the underdog can pull off the upset.

It's why they play the game.

You can figure out on paper who has the better matchups and who will likely walk out with the win, but you will never know until the final scoreboard reads official.

Here are three underdogs who will shock their opponents in Week 15 play.

Washington Redskins

The New York Giants may have pulled off a close victory against the Dallas Cowboys a week ago, but some of the major flaws of the team were really brought to the light.

This New York defense is in shambles. The secondary looks horrid.

Last week, Rex Grossman and the Washington Redskins looked pretty impressive against the New England Patriots.

If there is another team in the NFL that is built just like New England, it's New York.

The Giants are going to put up points on Washington, but Rex Grossman and the Redskins will match them stride for stride.

This one will come down to the wire and Washington will pull off the stunning upset.

Seattle Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks aren't as bad as everyone makes them out to be.

Their defense has been impressive all season. The offense has also shown signs of brilliance. The only real setback has been the lack of a franchise quarterback.

They won't need one to get the win against Chicago this weekend.

Things are falling apart quickly for the Bears without Jay Cutler and Matt Forte on the offensive side of the ball.

The Bears have been unable to establish any sort of rhythm over the past few weeks.

It's going to allow the Seahawks to pull off one of the quieter upsets of the weekend.

New York Jets

You would think that after a 5-8 season, people would stop picking the Eagles every single week.

For some reason, that isn't the case.

This weekend the Eagles are favorites over a New York Jets team that has won their last three games.

The Jets are finally starting to find an offensive rhythm, and match up well against the Eagles defensively.

Philadelphia likes to pass the ball, and stopping the pass is what New York specializes in.

The Jets will end the dream team's final shot at a playoff berth this weekend.
