One of the fun and exciting things about the NFL is the constant possibility of upsets from game to game, especially compared to the three other major sports in our nation.
One or two upsets over the course of a season could literally turn a team’s season around, or cause another squad to fall out of the playoff picture altogether.
Fox Sports personality Colin Cowherd is predicting what would be a pretty big upset in Week 6 – the New York Jets defeating the Green Bay Packers.

The Jets Do Have The Firepower Cowherd Mentioned
New York has been in a rebuilding process for some time, but there finally may be at least a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel.
It has four players with at least 200 receiving yards so far this season – rookie wide receiver Garrett Wilson, second-year wideout Elijah Moore, veteran wideout Corey Davis and rookie running back Breece Hall.
The Jets are 3-2 on the season, and while their running game and defense are somewhat lacking, they do rank ninth in passing yards.
Another young gun, second-year quarterback Zach Wilson, is back from the knee injury he suffered during the preseason, and while he isn’t setting the world on fire, he did play well last week versus the Miami Dolphins.
Look at the talent. Look at the effort.

Green Bay Will Be A Stiff Test For New York
Going up against the Packers means going up against Aaron Rodgers, and that is never an easy task.
Luckily, they don’t have Davante Adams anymore, and while a number of their receivers this year have been picking up the slack, there is simply no replacing Adams’ ability to make game-changing big-yardage catches that pierce the hearts of their opponents.
If New York wants to prove it isn’t a mirage, it needs to go into Lambeau Field and get this win.
