Top Ten NFL Upsets of All Time


The Top Ten

1 SuperBowl XLll

Sorry but Super Bowl III was the better upset. If that doesn't happen, the NFL doesn't merge. Plus, the Giants played the Patriots close in the regular season while the Jets would've lost to the Colts in the regular season had they played. The Patriots were favored by 12 points over the Giants while the Colts were favored by 18 over the Jets. In reality, the Giants had a better chance of beating the Patriots than the Jets did of beating the Colts of the odds. - BUETBU91

Greatest team ever to suit up, it's close to the 2001 Rams and oddly enough they lost to much weaker teams in the SuperBowl.

One of the most improbable upsets. A weaker team finds a way to beat one of the best NFL teams of all time.

I don't really like this super bowl. They kinda destroy the patroits greatness of how they play this year their getting this butt kick wot 2010 Super bowl lets go Patroits

Better than Super Bowl XLII because without it, the NFL wouldn't be what it is today. - BUETBU91

I do think overall Superbowl 42 was a bigger upset, but Superbowl 3 meant so much more, if it wasn't for this win, there may have never been a merger. - MRJ12744

9 Redskins' Scab Beats Americas Team
10 Patriots beating the Seahawks in 2015 Super Bowl XLIX

Malcolm Butler made the most amazing read ever. That's all I have to say

This wasn't an upset the game could have went either way

Whoever thinks the Patriots cheated:Go soak your head. We won the Super Bowl fair and square. Malcolm Butler was great, Tom Brady was fantastic.

I love the Seahawks and I don't like the patriots they cheated
