The Weekend has officially gone over and with this, a lot of surprises were given across the entire league, including fan favorites’ wins and some of the biggest upsets that we have seen the entire season this year. The upset streak started on Thursday Night Football when the Miami Dolphins beat a very talented QB in Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens to take the season for a spin and have doubters become believers at Miami Gardens. Not only was this not something most may have seen coming, but we never expected this would be the start of a bigger trend that will continue to happen consequently until Sunday.
Dallas Cowboys at Atlanta Falcons
QB Dak Prescott and the Cowboy absolutely smashed the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday schedule, getting the win 43-3 in a display of both passing and ground game by the Cowboys offensive team that was led by RB Ezekiel Elliot by getting two TD runs and a 2-point conversion and WR Cedee Lamb who continues to show up when they need it the most receiving 94 yards and two TDs for his team. Even QB Prescott was able to get a TD on his own in the third quarter when he ran into the end zone to make a wider advantage that will position the Cowboys back into the contender conversation.
The Falcons, even when trying to punt back after another failed attempt to move forward, was caught by the Cowboys special teams who showed up as much as the power offense that the team currently has to give another chance to get the score, which they finally did and converted into more points on the board.
Washington Football at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Buccaneers had found their first big upset during this season when the unexpected Washington Football started taking the advantage early going against an MVP candidate QB Tom Brady who was not feeling himself very much and threw for two interceptions that cost the Bucs a lot throughout the entire game. Washington’s QB Heinicke took advantage of a hard time that Brady was going through and fed himself off from their bad momentum to start using the passing game a lot more and have himself put points on the board. By halftime, Washington was up against Tampa Bay and that would ring all alarms for the upcoming upset.
Aside from what was happening, for the Bucs WR Mike Evans did his best to get the Bucs back in the game. He made two receptions for a total of 62 yards and one touchdown, but this was still not enough to overcome the Washington energy that was overflowing from the crowd to the players on the field to finally get the win at home that counts for two.
Arizona Cardinals at Carolina Panthers
When we watched TNF and Miami beat the Ravens, we may have thought that the upsets for the week were probably done, but we were all wrong. The return of QB Cam Newton to the Carolina Panthers meant another game to the series of upsets that will happen in NFL’s Week 10 that will be remembered by a lot of fans for the surprising results and the comebacks that will echo throughout the rest of the season. Superman is back with Carolina, and the fans were happy to see former MVP QB Newton back in uniform. The latter showed himself very happy to be back with his team and get the win against one of the toughest opponents in the league.
Carolina beat the Cardinals by a score of 34-10, now in the third spot in the NFC South Division standings below Tampa Bay, who also ran into an upset loss, and the New Orleans Saints who also took the loss against the Tennessee Titans.
Green Bay Packers at Seattle Seahawks
After weeks full of controversy, again for the Green Bay Packers, his most valuable player, QB Aaron Rodgers, has taken the win one more time for his team in a game where he accumulated 292 yards and a single interception that finally made no difference in the final outcome of this matchup. In an awesome display of ground running, RB AJ Dillon took the most important plays for the Packers during this game, and even when he only ran for 66 yards, two of those runs were for the TDs that made the difference for Green Bay.
The welcome party was completely ruined for QB Russell Wilson, who was also looking to make a comeback after his injury, that kept him off the field for a few weeks, but was not able to make any points on the board for his team in a very tough loss that will surely surround that team’s morale for some time in addition to the ejection of WR DK Metcalf who lost his cool during the last minutes and got himself taken off the field.
