Five games left – It’s gonna be a wild ride ahead

Now that the hated eagles have lost to the niners, the Cowboys still have a shot at the division and a slim shot at the #1 seed. It will still be a tough hill to climb. We will certainly have to play our best football in the next few weeks and then get some help. But there is a chance. And that’s all we could ask for at this point. A real chance.

Having watched the NFL now for decades, the only guarantee I can make is there will be some surprises. They happen almost weekly. How many of us thought these outcomes would happen this year?

  • Week 1:
    • Lions upset the chiefs 21-20
    • Brown beat the bengals 24-3
    • Jets beat the bills 22-16
  • Week 3:
    • Cards upset Cowboys 28-16
  • Week 5
    • Niners beat the Cowboys 42-10 (not an upset but I didn’t see a slaughter coming)
  • Week 6
    • Browns upset the niners 19-17
    • Jets upset the eagles 20-14
  • Week 7
    • Bears crush the raiders 30-12
    • Pats upset the bills 29-25
  • Week 8
    • Panthers win their first game vs Texans 15-13
    • Broncos upset the chiefs 24-9
    • Bengals whip the niners 31-17
  • Week 10
    • Broncos beat the bills 24-22
  • Week 12
    • Pack upsets the lions on Turkey Day 29-22
  • Week 13
    • Cards beat the Steelers 24-10
    • Pack upsets the chiefs 27-19

So over 13 weeks, there have been at least 16 games that were either upsets or surprising beat down margins. None of us know how this is all going to play out!

Here’s my point: Fasten your seat belt my friends. The next 5 weeks is going to be wild! Lets go Cowboys!
