NFL Upset Picks – Week 9

by on October 31, 2014 updated October 31, 2014

It’s time once again for NFL upset picks. It’s week 9 and things are starting to jell for some and fall apart for others, which always makes for interesting discussions. Without further ado let’s look at my upset picks for Week 9.

Denver Broncos at New England Patriots – Of course the focus is on another epic Brady vs Manning showdown but it seems to me that the point is being missed. These are both good teams. Denver is 6-1 and 1-1 on the road. The Patriots are 4-0 at home, yet are currently 4 point underdogs. Certainly New England has been erratic. Let’s not forget though, that Bill Bellichick is not going to take this game lightly. A win puts them in control of the AFC. I’m thinking this is going to be one of those mad scientist type schemes that gives Manning enough trouble for the Patriots to squeeze out a win and tighten things up in the AFC.

Arizona Cardinals at Dallas Cowboys – The Dallas Cowboys will be trying to come back from a very tough loss to the Washington Redskins and may be trying to do it without Tony Romo. At 6-2, the Cowboys are still way ahead of where most pundits had them at this point in the season. But are there cracks in the facade? Washington stymied a stout Cowboys running game when it had to and Romo, if he plays, will not be at his best. I suspect Dallas will revert to form while the 6-1 Arizona Cardinals will show exactly why they are 6-1 and serious contenders in the NFC West.

St. Louis Rams at San Francisco 49ers – This may be my craziest NFL upset pick ever. I don’t know why but I just believe the 49ers are struggling with some kind of internal malaise that won’t be evident until season’s end. Meanwhile the Rams are showing me some grit. It wouldn’t surprise me to see St. Louis find some weird way to catch a win.
