The Green Bay Packers and Arizona Cardinals are among the NFL teams that need to be on upset alert in Week 11.
The NFL is truly a week-to-week league and the results over the past month or so have certainly reflected that. It feels like multiple contenders have slipped up every week, including the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Los Angeles Chargers last Sunday, making the teams who can take care of business real threats to make deep postseason runs.
Let’s take a look at three more teams who could join Tampa Bay and Los Angeles on the list of upset victims if they aren’t careful with some tricky Week 11 matchups. All lines referenced in this piece are provided courtesy of the FanDuel Sportsbook.
3. NFL teams on upset alert in Week 11 – Philadelphia Eagles
The NFC’s muddled playoff picture has certainly helped out the Eagles, who are right in the hunt for one of the conference’s final wild-card berths despite some sloppy play over the first ten weeks of the year. Philadelphia toppled Denver 30-13 on the road, an impressive result that has inspired confidence in them from the sportsbooks.
Oddsmakers have established the Eagles as 1.5 point favorites at home against the New Orleans Saints, one of the teams that Philadelphia is chasing in the standings. The Saints fought hard on the road against the Tennessee Titans last week, losing 23-21 in a game where their kicker missed a pair of extra points.
This is a dangerous spot for the Eagles since the Saints are a capable road team that has delivered big efforts throughout the season. New Orleans is more than capable of walking into Lincoln Financial Field and leaving with a victory if Philadelphia isn’t careful here.
