NFL Week 5: Three Teams on Upset Alert
Week five of the 2018 NFL Season started with the New England Patriots doing their thing on Thursday Night. In a little more than 24 hours, 26 more teams take the field for their attempt on this young NFL season. Many teams are looking to pick up where they left off in week four. While other teams are looking to make a name for themselves this season. Several teams are favored to win big in week five. Each week I am going to look at three teams that should be on upset alert. Here we go with week five.
Last week we saw the Baker Mayfield era begin with the Cleveland Browns. In that game, the Browns felt robbed out in Oakland. This week they play a little more aggressive defense in the Baltimore Ravens. With Mayfield’s ability to extend plays that could play right into the hands of a Browns’ upset.
The Chiefs are one of the two remaining undefeated teams in the NFL. This could all come crashing down at home on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jags defense will be the best defense that Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs have faced all year. Even without star running back Leonard Fournette, this game should play right into the hand of the Jags offense. The Chiefs defense is weak and ready to give up points.
The Bengals face the 3-1 Miami Dolphins in week five. While the Bengals are playing good football, they lost a couple of pieces to their offense. Out for the season is TE Tyler Eifert. The Bengals also lost RB Giovanni Bernard for 2-4 weeks. However, they do get back RB, Joe Mixon. Nonetheless, Miami is primed to come in and pull the upset this week. They will need to show they can keep pace with the New England Patriots.
These three teams will have their work cut out for them in week five of the 2018 NFL Season. They will need to bring their A-Game to stay on top of their game.
