Top Ten NFL Upsets of All Time

The Top Ten

1 SuperBowl lll

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

Jets upset the colts with Joe Namath - ZachW97

2 SuperBowl XLll

This should number 1 giants are the best

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.

3 Chiefs End the Packers Undefeated Streak In 2011
4 Falcons Upset Vikings in the 1998 NFC Championship

Really 11th?!?! It was a) 20-7 Vikings b) up to their perfect kicker to make a 38 YARD FIELD GOAL and missed and the falcons won 30-27(OT)

5 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
