Not surprisingly, he won league MVP for his efforts. The big picture: At his current pace, Mahomes will not only smash his own best effort, but he’s on his way to re-writing history and setting benchmarks nobody in their right mind could have seen coming.

Last weekend we correctly predicted that Houston and Detroit would upset Los Angeles and Philadelphia, respectively. So who’s it going to be this time around?

Here we identify six teams on upset alert in NFL Week 4.

Tennessee Titans at Atlanta Falcons (-3.5)

Falcons QB Matt Ryan has thrown six interceptions in three games. If Tennessee’s edge rushers can bring the heat Sunday in Atlanta, then the secondary should benefit from one or two more.

What this game may boil down to is whether Titans QB Marcus Mariota can get on the same page with his receiving corps. He opened the season with three touchdowns against Cleveland but has just one since. The key could be Pro Bowl tight end Delanie Walker, who should feast in the middle of the field with Falcons safety Keanu Neal out for the season with an Achilles injury.

It didn’t take long before the penalties racked up and Brady’s patience wore thin.Too many penalties.

That’s what’s left for teams heading into NFL Week 11, and there’s obviously a lot at stake down the stretch. Last weekend, we correctly identified three huge upsets , and now we’re hunting for six more teams on upset alert heading into Sunday’s action. We’ll go ahead and start with the most highly

Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens (-7)

It’s easy to see why the Ravens are favored by a touchdown. Lamar Jackson has played great so far this season, and the Baltimore rushing attack is potent. On top of that, browns QB Baker Mayfield has been downright atrocious, and the Ravens have the ability to bring some heat.

That said, we know Mayfield is capable of playing a better brand of football. If he can get back to the confident form we saw from him in his rookie season, Cleveland can certainly win. With Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry, this offense still has explosive potential. Will we finally see that come to fruition?

Oakland Raiders at Indianapolis Colts (-7)

The Raiders haven’t looked good since Week 1. But this weekend provides Derek Carr with a prime opportunity to get right. The Colts have allowed opposing quarterbacks to complete 76 percent of their passes and have forced just two interceptions. Without star safety Malik Hooker in the middle, things could get even worse.

Six teams on upset alert for Week 3 in the NFL

Looking ahead to Week 3, there are more teams ripe for the upset. © Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY SportsCan Lamar Jackson and the Ravens take down the mighty Kansas City Chiefs? Will the Cam Newton-less Carolina Panthers handle the Cardinals the desert? We’re answering these questions and more in examining six teams on upset alert for Week 3.Baltimore Ravens at Kansas City Chiefs (-6)Given the exploits of Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes, who is on pace to shatter NFL records this season, it’s hard to bet against the Chiefs.

The following favorites are on upset alert in NFL Week 6 . Buffalo Bills vs. Houston Texans (-8.5). However, the Steelers do one thing better than any other team in the league : They lead the NFL with 19 sacks, and a rattled Andy Dalton is capable of handing opposing defenses the keys to the kingdom.

Last weekend was pretty quiet on the upset front, which likely means NFL Week 9 is going to feature some real doozies. He nearly rallied the Bucs to victory last weekend over the Cincinnati Bengals, entering the game 18 points down and tying it up late in the fourth quarter.

On the other side, Indy comes into this game with T.Y. Hilton likely to watch from the sideline due to a quad injury that has him listed as doubtful to play. Quarterback Jacoby Brissett has been outstanding so far, yet he’ll struggle if Oakland can slow down running back Marlon Mack and make Indy’s offense one-dimensional.

Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Denver Broncos (-3)

Don’t be surprised if Minshew Mania gets another jolt this Sunday when the Jaguars head into Denver for a date with the Broncos. Stunningly, Denver’s defense is the only one in the NFL without a single sack. Von Miller and Bradley Chubb have led a toothless defense that’s letting offenses have all the time they need to make plays.

Meanwhile, Broncos QB Joe Flacco is completing a high percentage of his passes (69.1 percent) but only has two touchdowns, along with two picks. The Jaguars are tied with the league lead with 13 sacks, and Denver’s offensive line is a wreck. Look for the road team to dominate defensively — with or without Jalen Ramsey — en route to an impressive win.

A few teams seem to be staring down the barrel of an upset this weekend. He has zero experience at the NFL level outside of preseason games. An offense that struggles to protect its quarterback and just lost its best receiver to the 49ers, will seemingly be hard-pressed to make anything happen in the

Even so, the NFL has a way of producing upsets every single weekend, regardless of trends. The Seahawks also have rediscovered their defensive edge and enter Week 8 ranked fifth in the league in scoring defense. They’ll be getting some fresh bodies back on the defensive line as well.

Dallas Cowboys (-3) at New Orleans Saints

There are some fantastic individual matchups to watch in this game, like Marshon Lattimore going against Amari Cooper, and Cam Jordan going against Tyron Smith. From a team-wide perspective, it’s going to be a fantastic game as two NFC heavyweights go at it for 60 minutes.

The big reason we’re high on New Orleans upsetting Dallas at home is that Teddy Bridgewater showed out very well last Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks, completing 70.4 percent of his passes with two touchdowns and zero interceptions. If he can keep plugging away like this, he gives the Saints a chance to win every game.

Cincinnati Bengals at Pittsburgh Steelers (-3.5)

This Monday night AFC North showdown isn’t what anyone expected it to be when the schedule came out. The Bengals and Steelers are a combined 0-6 to start the season. It’s what we got, though, and we’re going to make the best of it.

Cincinnati’s defense has been among the league’s worst since the start of the season, especially on the ground. That could lead to James Conner finally breaking out with his first big game of the season. However, given the struggles Pittsburgh has had offensively, we’re not betting on it. Furthermore, Steelers QB Mason Rudolph has thrown an interception in each of his first two games this season.

The following six teams , favored to win in NFL Week 12, are being put on upset alert . Denver Broncos vs. Buffalo Bills (- 4 ). © David Berding-USA TODAY What really makes us believe the Broncos could pull off an upset in Buffalo is that Denver’s defense is in the top 10 against the run and No. 4 overall.

So, if Andy Dalton and his offense can get going against a Pittsburgh defense that has been one of the league’s worst, the Bengals can pull off the road win and upset the Steelers at Heinz Field.

Despite hopes from Jaguars owner, Jalen Ramsey unlikely to play vs. Saints .
It looks like Jaguars owner Shad Khan was mistaken. Khan, who has seemingly been overly optimistic about the Jalen Ramsey situation ever since his trade demand became public, said earlier this week that he expected Ramsey to play in Week 6. That was apparently news to Ramsey, and his camp soon put out word that he hadn’t committed to playing this week. Indeed, it “would be a major surprise if he plays this week,” tweets Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
