He was pointing at his right leg, and trainers were later shown trying to treat his knee.A cart came out for the Kansas City quarterback, but Mahomes waved it off and walked off the field with the assistance of some staff members. He then headed into the locker room as he was replaced by Matt Moore.

Last weekend was pretty quiet on the upset front, which likely means NFL Week 9 is going to feature some real doozies. Given the quality of the matchups on this weekend’s schedule, at the very least the action will entertain. From an AFC North rivalry game that always features big hits to a matchup of potential NFC champs, NFL Week 9 looks promising, indeed. So, which favorites are in danger of being upset ?

Wondering which NFL teams are going to win in Week 9 ? You've come to the right place to find out.

We're just halfway through the season, and we’ve already seen our fair share of upsets around the league. If the past is anything to judge by, that trend should continue in NFL Week 9.

Looking at the point spreads for the weekend’s action, we’re pinpointing six teams on upset alert. Starting with the London game, these are the games that have us thinking the underdogs are ready to eat.

Houston Texans (-2) vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

Houston’s defense lost its leader last weekend. Now without J.J. Watt, this already struggling defense is going to have its hands full with opposing offenses the rest of the season. Minshew Mania descends upon London Sunday morning and the Texans will have a hard time keeping their opponent off the board in this overseas thriller.

6 NFL teams that should have a fire sale at the trade deadline

  6 NFL teams that should have a fire sale at the trade deadline The Dolphins aren’t the only ones that should tank the rest of the 2019 season. Here’s a look at the other teams likely to be sellers and which players they could trade away.

NFL Schedule. 2019 — WEEK 9 . In each of Weeks 15 and 16, up to three of five designated matchups will be played on Saturday with the remainder to be played on Sunday.

NFL Week 17 gives players and teams one final chance to make an impression this season. The stakes are even higher for some teams on Sunday, as it’s the last chance to get into the playoffs. The regular season closes out Sunday with a 16-game slate, and it’s capped off by an NFC West showdown with major postseason implications. With so much on the line, we’re bound to see some interesting stuff go down. Looking at the Week 17 schedule, we’re putting six teams on upset alert .

On the other side, Deshaun Watson has been incredible this season but has also had a couple of pretty glaring stinkers against the Indianapolis Colts and Kansas City Chiefs (quite recently, at that). Jacksonville’s defensive front can bring the pressure, and the Texans, who could be without both starting tackles, struggle to keep good pass rushers from wreaking havoc in the backfield.

Tennessee Titans vs. Carolina Panthers (-3.5)

A team that struggled offensively for most of the season is suddenly scoring points now that Ryan Tannehill has replaced Marcus Mariota. Tennessee won its last two games, and Tannehill has impressed with 505 passing yards, five touchdowns and just one interception. Carolina’s defense will present a new challenge for the former first-rounder, which is why the Panthers are favored to win.

15 key questions for NFL Week 9

  15 key questions for NFL Week 9 As we enter the second half of the NFL season, playoff races are starting to get intense for a lot of teams. The rosters for teams are more or less solidifying but who will make it to the Super Bowl.So now that things are getting serious, we can start to take a look around the league and see what we’re facing in Week 9. Here are some key questions to be answered.

Week 7 offers plenty of intriguing matchups, and these six teams are on upset watch. Starting with an undermanned Green Bay Packers team hosting the Oakland Raiders and finishing with an NFC East special Sunday Night Football matchup pitting the Philadelphia Eagles against the Dallas Cowboys, these are the teams we’re eyeing to lose to underdogs in NFL Week 7.

A look at some of the games that have potential to be big upsets in week nine of the 2019 college football season. These teams should be on upset alert !

However, the Panthers are coming off their worst offensive performance of the season in San Francisco. Kyle Allen threw three picks and was sacked seven times. While Tennessee doesn’t bring quite that level of defensive potency, the defense is playing very well and can bring pressure. It’s going to be fascinating to see how Allen rebounds, especially in light of the latest details on Cam Newton.

New York Jets (-3) vs. Miami Dolphins

Okay sure. The Dolphins are really bad. Like, cover your eyes bad. They struggle to run the ball and will even more so after trading Kenyan Drake to Arizona. That creates even more of an issue for Ryan Fitzpatrick and Co. to overcome.

But there are two significant reasons to doubt the Jets this weekend. First, nearly half the team is listed on the injury report. That’s not hyperbole, folks. This team is banged up with a capital B.

Did your NFL team mess up by not drafting Lamar Jackson?

  Did your NFL team mess up by not drafting Lamar Jackson? Looking back at the 2018 NFL Draft to see who skipped over Jackson — and who’s paying for it.By the end of that season, he was the only one of those rookies to make a start in the postseason. He’s kept that pace alive in 2019, when his Ravens stand atop a depleted AFC North and look stronger every week. Jackson planted his flag as a potential MVP candidate by becoming the youngest quarterback to beat Bill Belichick (and his 8-0 Patriots) in 15 years.

Secondly, Sam Darnold is having a hell of a time right now. The second-year quarterback threw just two touchdowns and seven interceptions in his last two games. Miami’s defense showed signs of life in the first quarter against Pittsburgh on Monday night. An effort similar to that could spark a huge upset for the winless Fins.

Detroit Lions vs. Oakland Raiders (-2.5)

Fans could be in for quite an offensive showdown in Oakland this Sunday as Matthew Stafford and Derek Carr duel it out against defenses that struggle against the pass.

The biggest reason we’re high on the Lions this weekend is that Stafford is playing out of his mind lately. The former No. 1 overall pick is playing perhaps the best football of his career and is coming off a two-game stretch that saw him pass for 706 yards and seven touchdowns. Oakland’s secondary is not good, and the Raiders struggle to create pressure, too. This sets up for a huge afternoon for Stafford against the Raiders.

Indianapolis Colts (-1) vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

This game could get very ugly. The Colts will be without star receiver T.Y. Hilton this Sunday, and likely for weeks afterward. Meanwhile, the Steelers are likely going to be without star running back James Conner and backup Benny Snell has been ruled out.

Mahomes hit em with the jump pass and Mecole Hardman did the rest @PatrickMahomes @MecoleHardman4 pic.twitter.

Without a strong rushing attack, it’s easy to assume Mason Rudolph will struggle with consistency in the passing game. That seems to tilt the game in Indy’s favor. However, the Steelers are very dangerous defensively. They’re at home, and without Hilton in the lineup, Jacoby Brissett could be in for a tough afternoon at Heinz Field.

Of course, all of this is moot if the Colts can run through Pittsburgh’s defense. This seems unlikely though, the Steelers are allowing just 3.7 yards per carry and have given up just four rushing scores all season.

Cleveland Browns (-4.5) vs. Denver Broncos

Another game that could spiral into the “unwatchable” category, Cleveland vs. Denver is a difficult game to call.

After placing Joe Flacco on injured reserve, the Broncos will be rolling with Brandon Allen under center. 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 passing game.

On the other hand, despite all that star power on Cleveland’s offensive roster, the Browns have been awful this year. Now they’re going against a defensive team that, despite poor sack numbers, defends the passing game well. Baker Mayfield has been brutal with decision making and could easily have another awful game in Denver.
