Well, it's not often a blind squirrel finds a nut - but ole DLT found himself 2-0 in his upset specials thanks to big wins by the Washington football team with a racial slur for a name and Cleveland.
But as our beloved Buccaroonies look to get off "O" this week against the Miami Vices, I like to consider the possibilities that this could be a week of upsets.
So, here we go!
Last Week: 9-4 69% Upset Specials: 2-0 100%
Season: 88-47 65% Upset Specials: 8-8 50%
Seahawks 30, Falcons 20 - I almost went with my rule of west coast coming east in this one but the Flukins are in such disarray and I think the Seahags have had their wakeup call the last couple weeks against the Scams and the Yucks.
Lions 23, Bears 20 - DABEARS got a big break when Aaron Rodgers went down, allowing them to pull out a win they had no business getting and destroying the hopes of fantasy football league owners throughout the country. How will my team, the Supreme Daleks, recover? I signed Mike Glennon. Yeah, it's that bad.
Giants 20, Raiders 6 - Let's see would I rather watch this disaster of a game or be forced to read Ravished by the Triceratops(yes, its really a thing - the link may be a little NSFW)? Decisions....decisions...I'll take waterboarding for $200, Alex.
Upset Special #2: Panthers 27, 49ers 17 - Yes, I am drinking the Panther kool-aid (ooh that sounded gross). Plus I think that defense is going to give Kap fits. It's a long trip but it will be worth it for Carolina.
