Any team on any day has a chance at an upset. Today was no exception. The Seattle Seahawks surprised the New England Patriots with some terrific plays from Russell Wilson, including a late TD bomb caught by Sidney Rice (I squealed in excitement during the last three minutes of the game -- editor Jim). Perhaps even more shocking is the fact that the entire AFC East is tied up 3-3. Even the lowly Buffalo Bills and New York Jets have won three games this season. On the Jets: Has there been a more up and down team this season? I have no idea whether they'll score 30 points or three each week. Shonn Greene somehow managed to run for 161 yards and three touchdowns. I have nothing to say. There were major dismantling of 'trendy' up-and-coming teams by established champions such as the New York Giants' drumming of the San Francisco 49ers and the Green Bay Packers blowout win over the Houston Texans. Cue 'pretender' labels from fans and critics for at least a week. On the Giants: Before this game their secondary was considered a major weakness and Alex Smith had only thrown one interception. After this game he had thrown another three and suddenly the Giants are looking solid against the pass. The Washington Redskins beat the 4-1 Minnesota Vikings -- another trendy team -- and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers put on a show to shut down the Kansas City Chiefs. The Cleveland Browns won their first game of the year against the supposedly competitive Cincinnati Bengals. On the Browns: Could Brandon Weeden actually be a functional QB? I'm not sure, but their other draft picks have looked great -- aside from the rib injury Trent Richardson suffered. The Atlanta Falcons are 6-0, but earned that on two recent unconvincing wins over the Redskins and, this week, the Oakland Raiders. Still, it's the first time in Falcons history they have started the season 6-0, and are definite Super Bowl contenders if they can get the run game going. Don't forget week 6 started with the Tennessee Titans upsetting the Pittsburgh Steelers. Like I said, the best thing about this league is how competitive all the teams can be. Teams whose rankings will (rightly) suffer: New England Patriots, Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, Arizona Cardinals. Teams whose rankings will (wrongly) suffer: San Francisco 49ers, Houston Texans (both played elite teams). Teams whose rankings will (rightly) improve: Seattle Seahawks, New York Giants, Green Bay Packers, Miami Dolphins, Buffalo Bills. Teams whose rankings will (wrongly) improve: New York Jets, Washington Redskins, Detroit Lions (all three teams have the same problems). Quick and dirty prediction for Monday Night Football: San Diego will run all over the Denver Broncos through Ryan Mathews, but Peyton Manning's poise will keep them in the game. San Diego will win 24-21. Which team surprised you the most this week?
