Most Surprising NFL Teams of 2017 After Week 9

Randomator
As we enter the second half of a bizarre season that will probably end up being more bizarre than it started out here's who has surprised us the most either good or bad.

The Top Ten

1 Washington Redskins Washington Redskins The Washington Redskins are a professional American football team based in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.

After struggling against Seattle's defense Kirk Cousins was able to magically lead this team to the end zone in the final 2 minutes of the game at the tough environment of Seattle. If they keep it up they are still alive - Randomator

Yeah I'm stunned that a much depleted, and banged up Washington team was able to score the upset at the 12th men territory is quite shocking. - htoutlaws2012

2 New York Jets New York Jets The New York Jets are a professional American football team located in the New York metropolitan area.

After beating Buffalo I am all but convinced that they are no longer tanking. But really New York what the heck are you doing? Are you still supposedly tanking or not? I can't be sure of what the Jets are doing for sure - Randomator

After this game tell me again how the Jets are tanking exactly we got the wrong New York team taking which is totally strange. - htoutlaws2012

3 Seattle Seahawks Seattle Seahawks The Seattle Seahawks are a professional American football franchise based in Seattle, Washington. The Seahawks compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference West division.

For the second week in a row Seattle decided to play a thriller game. I'm surprised that the defense completely fell apart in the final 2 minutes by letting Cousins make 2 crucial completions to save the Redskins. Seattle your division isn't just yours this year. The Rams are on the rise. - Randomator

4 Dallas Cowboys Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys defeated the Chiefs after an embarrassing first half ending. They are still very much alive in the playoff race after some uncertainty earlier on. And in case anyone was wondering Zeke continues to tease the Cowboys fanbase and haters about his suspension. As he was eligible to play this week - Randomator

Mighty impressive victory for Dallas perhaps trying to get a wild card spot down the line, maybe get a victory over the Eagles. - htoutlaws2012

5 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.

After starting 0-2 the Saints have won 6 straight games and lead the NFC south and look like a real contender. - Randomator

6 Jacksonville Jaguars Jacksonville Jaguars The Jacksonville Jaguars are an American professional football franchise based in Jacksonville, Florida.

The Jags finally put together a winning streak for the first time this year by dismantling a woeful Bengals team. What's shocking is that they didn't even need Fournette to win this game. Although they are still very inconsistent and young. I'm saying there's still a chance for them in a crazy AFC South division - Randomator

2 game streak for the Jags now the race is on for the AFC South crown between the Jags, and Titans. - htoutlaws2012

7 Indianapolis Colts Indianapolis Colts The Indianapolis Colts are an American football team based in Indianapolis, Indiana. The Colts compete in the National Football League as a member club of the American Football Conference South division.

The all but lifeless and dead Colts beat Houston which is surprising in itself but it was largely just because Deshaun Watson went down but still. Gotta give credit where credit is due. - Randomator

While Hilton had an awesome game they also played a team led by Tom Savage I mean... enough said. - htoutlaws2012

T.Y Hilton was honestly the real hero for Indy. - Randomator

8 Detroit Lions Detroit Lions The Detroit Lions are a professional American football team based in Detroit, Michigan. The Lions compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference North division.

The Lions absolutely humiliated Green Bay which honestly is not as big of a surprise as you would normally think at this point considering how many injuries Green Bay is facing. But I have to give credit to Stafford and Detroit. They showed us that they are still very much in the hunt - Randomator

A must win situation, and the Lions did not screw around with Green Bay thank goodness they took care of business because hey guess what we face one of the worst teams in the NFL next week. - htoutlaws2012

9 Cincinnati Bengals Cincinnati Bengals The Cincinnati Bengals are a professional American football franchise based in Cincinnati, Ohio. The Bengals currently compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's American Football Conference North division.

Cincinnati's season can be summed up perfectly by the game against Jacksonville: Frustrating. The offense struggled for almost 95% of the game. It's going to be another disappointing season for Cincinnati. - Randomator

AJ Green even decided to bring out his frustration and got suspended. - Randomator

10 Los Angeles Rams Los Angeles Rams The Los Angeles Rams are a professional American football team based in the Los Angeles metropolitan area.

They dominated the Giants which isn't a surprise at all but they have taken over first place in the NFC West. This could be the year they finally make the playoffs again - Randomator

After the way Seattle played the Seahawks might not win the division as easily if they win it at all - Randomator

The Contenders

11 Carolina Panthers Carolina Panthers The Carolina Panthers are a professional American football team based in Charlotte, North Carolina, that competes in the National Football League.

I'm not that surprised that they beat Atlanta actually. This is a decent Panthers team and with Cam at QB. Atlanta is still on super bowl hangover - Randomator

It was gonna come down to who was make the bigger mistake between Ryan, and Newton, and that sows once again Matt Ryan cannot overcome the hangover. - htoutlaws2012

12 Denver Broncos Denver Broncos The Denver Broncos are an American football team based in Denver, Colorado. The Broncos compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's American Football Conference West division.

You'd think that the best defense in the league would be able to hold Philadelphia down but no. The Eagles made the defense look nonexistent by putting up 51 points and the Denver offense was also nonexistent - Randomator

So much for the orange crush 2.0 laying down, and given up 50, and against the best team in the NFL. - htoutlaws2012

13 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.

I'm surprised that KC just couldn't do anything especially after the crazy first half ending from Tyreek Hill should have given them some momentum going into halftime. I still think that they are good for the playoffs but the Chiefs need to find their mojo again or they could be in trouble - Randomator

I can't blame the offense on this it goes to a struggling passing defense that has given up a lot of points to opposing offensive teams which led to this loss. - htoutlaws2012

14 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.

Okay at this point I have officially given up on Green Bay this season. The injuries outside of Rodgers have come back to haunt them.I've given Hundley his chance after having time to really practice during the bye week and get advice from Rodgers himself but to get humiliated by the Detroit Lions at Lambeau is something else. Gotta give credit to Detroit though. - Randomator
