There were a handful of crazy upsets again this week in the NFL, but which ones were the most shocking and which ones did we see coming?
Last weekend was stuffed full of NFL upsets that reminded us why we love football so much. But that was a trend that didn’t die this weekend, as we saw another slew of upset wins with a few of them going as far as to establish the underdog team as a serious contender this season.
It’s still early in the year, but the upsets we saw this weekend might end up being the launching points for the next great young teams in football.
But which upset was the most shocking? Let’s build it up from least to most shocking.
This game the Jaguars should have won, especially if they wanted to establish themselves as serious playoff contenders. That didn’t mean it was supposed to be a blowout win by the Jags but the team was favored in a game it should have won.
That didn’t happen and the air has been sucked out of the sails in a big way. The Jags were coming off a huge win over the Ravens in London, but losing to the Jets — a team many thought would struggle to win a single game this year — is a horrible look. That win last week, coupled with how well #Sacksonville played in the first week, makes this an upset.
New York deserves a ton of credit for coming out and not laying down, and the Jaguars need to seriously consider what kind of team they want to be.
