Most Surprising NFL Teams of 2017 After Week 6

Randomator
Teams that shocked us the most good or bad as of Week 6 of the 2017-18 season

The Top Ten

1 New Orleans Saints New Orleans Saints The New Orleans Saints are a professional American football team based in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Saints currently compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference South division.

The Saints suddenly exploded on offense against a solid Detroit team putting up 52 total points and winning by 14 points. What makes them so surprising is that they came out of nowhere. And this was after trading AP! The Saints are 3-2 and only a half game behind Carolina. - Randomator

2 Kansas City Chiefs Kansas City Chiefs The Kansas City Chiefs are a professional American football team based in Kansas City, Missouri. The Chiefs compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's American Football Conference West division.

What happened to Kansas City? Their red hot offense was completely shut down by a Steelers defense that was struggling. Kansas City should have been able to get revenge on the team they lost to in the playoffs last year but no. On top of that they were playing at Arowhead which is a tough environment for road teams. - Randomator

Yes its shocking they lost, but at the same time they should beat most of the remaining schedule after this. - htoutlaws2012

3 Los Angeles Chargers Los Angeles Chargers

They defeated the Raiders on the last play of the game. What shocks me though is the fact they were 0-4 and have now picked up 2 straight wins. - Randomator

Even with Derek Carr in I had a strange feeling the Chargers would win, but not in the way I thought. - htoutlaws2012

4 Pittsburgh Steelers Pittsburgh Steelers The Pittsburgh Steelers are a professional American football team based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, that competes in the National Football League.

Pittsburgh once again beat Kansas City. Slaying the last undefeated team Ben Brown and Bell look back in Business and the defense was able to contain a red hot Chiefs offense. - Randomator

Now the Steelers look like the team everybody fears to play for any opposable defense. - htoutlaws2012

This team is inconsistent. They beat KC but lose to Chicago and Jacksonville. I'm not buying this team yet - Gametheorysucks

5 Chicago Bears Chicago Bears The Chicago Bears are a professional American football team in Chicago, Illinois. The Bears compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference North division.

Chicago got a win over a decent Ravens squad and Trubisky got his first OT win. He might be a better rookie starter than people give him credit for. I'm willing to give Chicago a chance. With Rodgers down anything is possible in the NFC North now. - Randomator

6 Miami Dolphins Miami Dolphins The Miami Dolphins are a professional American football franchise located in the Miami metropolitan area.

They were down against Atlanta 17-0 only to rally and win 20-17 with a very mediocre offense. Especially with Cutler at QB. I figured they were more surprising than Atlanta blowing yet another large lead at halftime. - Randomator

Looks like Atlanta cannot get over the super bowl hangover could this mean a potential miss for the playoffs down the road? - htoutlaws2012

7 Oakland Raiders Oakland Raiders The Oakland Raiders are a professional American football franchise based in Oakland, California. The Raiders began playing in 1960 as a member club of the American Football League; they have been a member club of the National Football League since the 1970 AFL–NFL merger.

The Raiders have dropped 4 consecutive games. This team has some serious work to do. They play KC on Thursday night and really can't afford to lose. They are already 2-4 and in last in the AFC West after losing to the Chargers. Oakland needs to turn the ship around - Randomator

Never would of thought after 6 games the Raiders would be last in the first half of the 2017 season. - htoutlaws2012

8 New York Giants New York Giants The New York Giants are a professional American football team located in the New York metropolitan area.

The Giants finally got a W this year. (It's about time) and it was against the Denver Broncos in the mile high city. McAdoo not calling plays might have been the reason but hey The Giants were able to score some points by running the by running the ball against the Broncos who have arguably the best defense in the league especially against the running game. Speaking of defense the Giants defense looked solid and was able to hold the Broncos almost lifeless on offense. - Randomator

Got a win unfortunately too little too late, the Giants are still a weak offensive team that isn't threatening sure they ran the ball effectively against the #1 rushing defense, and refuses to start over is what makes the team frustrating if you're a Giants fan. - htoutlaws2012

9 Arizona Cardinals Arizona Cardinals The Arizona Cardinals are a professional American football franchise based in the Phoenix metropolitan area.

After an Embarrassing loss last week to Philadelphia the Cards rebounded against a Tampa Bay team that was also looking to rebound from a missed opportunity for an upset over New England. They might still have a little bit of life left after all. Maybe? Maybe Not? - Randomator

10 Minnesota Vikings Minnesota Vikings The Minnesota Vikings are an American football team based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The Vikings joined the National Football League as an expansion team in 1960, and first took the field for the 1961 season.

They crushed their biggest rival Green Bay both literally and Mentally. They won 23-10 and injured Aaron Rodgers who may potentially be out the rest of the season and this is a Packers team already dealing with a bunch of injuries as is. The Vikings showed that they might dethrone their big brother Green Bay again and win the division. But even if they don't they made the division race way more interesting now by opening the doors for Detroit or heck even Chicago - Randomator

The Contenders

11 Green Bay Packers Green Bay Packers The Green Bay Packers are a professional American football team based in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The Packers compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference North division.

As a Packers fan myself I was obviously surprised at how quickly the season could take a turn for the worst. With Aaron Rodgers down for potentially the rest of the season the Packers are in deep trouble considering they are already banged up on both offense and defense. Aaron Rodgers injury could very well be the dagger in their playoff hopes. To be fair Hundley got thrown in the game unexpectedly so I will give him a chance - Randomator

12 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tampa Bay Buccaneers
13 Cleveland Browns Cleveland Browns The Cleveland Browns are a professional American football team based in Cleveland, Ohio. The Browns compete in the National Football League as a member team of the American Football Conference North division.

Not surprised. - Randomator

14 Atlanta Falcons Atlanta Falcons The Atlanta Falcons are a professional American football team based in Atlanta, Georgia. The Falcons compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference South division.

Oh hey another blown lead! - Gametheorysucks
