Week 5 quickly approaches the NFL, and like the four weeks prior it has the makings of some exciting games. Over the first four weeks, we have seen teams, look amazing, and then horrible all in a 7-day span. which leads me to this week. Even after four games, it is really hard to figure out who a team is, or isn’t. With that being said, I believe these three teams (considered good teams) should be on upset alert, this weekend.
1) Pittsburgh Steelers Vs Phialdelphia Eagles.
Up until now the Steelers, have had a perfect record. Led by seemingly and finally healthy, QB Ben Roethlisberger. Along with one of the leagues best defenses. They finally seem to be back in the mix, for AFC dominance. The reason I have them on this list is how they got here. The three teams combined up until now, have one win between them, and the Steelers, still had to go the distance to beat them. Add the Philadelphia Eagles, are slowly getting healthy, QB Carson Wentz, finally showed glimpses of his normal self, and the defense has played better every week. The pass rush alone could be a big issue for Big Ben. I personally think the Steelers win the game, but it makes sense to be on upset alert, as you just never know.
2) San Francisco Vs Miami Dolphins
I don’t care who is under center in San Fran, I believe the Dolphins can beat this team. Stacked with injuries, and a sort of predictive offense at this point, it is easy to see why. The Dolphins (who have been struggling for a while now), gave Seattle (Seahawks) all they could handle last week. As they almost pulled off one of the biggest early-season upsets. Stocked with real talent across the board, the Dolphins are no pushover. The Niners on the other hand, have only bullied the “little Kids” (Jets and Giants), and don’t seem to respond well when they get punched in the mouth. Despite the record, this isn’t the same San Francisco from last year. Look for the Dolphins to give them all they can handle.
3) Arizona Cardinals Vs New York Jets
I know, I really do, I know I sound crazy saying the Card’s are on upset alert against, the Jets of all teams. It’s not like the Cardinals are so dominant or anything, it’s that the Jet’s have been really bad, for a long time. But this week feels different. Rolling veteran QB Joe Flacco, out for his first start in over a year, could prove to be the difference. While the Jets are a bad team, they have talent. Flacco has been in this situation before and has proven the victor many times. Arizona has been pulling that college offense out every week, and it seems the defense is being run over for it. While I think Arizona is by far the better team, I think this week could prove to be the week the Jets, finally get a win.
