Here are five teams that should be on upset alert heading into NFL Week 15 of the 2018 season.
Without question, the Miami Dolphins putting together that miracle final play against the New England Patriots may have been the most surprising upset of last weekend when seeing how Tom Brady and company seemed to have the win in the bag. As for what football fans can expect from NFL Week 15, well let’s just say there will be a handful of candidates once again when it comes to potentially being on the wrong end of an upset.
Right away, the one game that sticks out the most will be a showdown in the NFC North, as the Green Bay Packers hope to keep their playoff hopes alive by earning another win over the Chicago Bears to sweep the season series. Normally, the Packers are one of the last teams any football fan would expect to see on a list like this, but between the team sitting below .500 along with the fact they already fired Mike McCarthy, things are different in 2018.
Thanks to building a better offense around Mitch Trubisky along with hiring Matt Nagy turning out to be the best decision the team could have made in the offseason, Chicago is on the verge of winning the NFC North title.
Before that happens, of course, the Bears need to make sure they figure out a way to take down the Packers on Sunday since Aaron Rodgers will most likely be playing with more motivation than ever. So along with Chicago, here are some other teams that hope to avoid being on the wrong end of an upset during Week 15.
