Week 5 of the NFL season will have several upsets. One from a rejuvenated team, one from a team starting over and one from a team that's just due.

Week 5 kicks off with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers visiting the Chicago Bears. The Bears has seen a renaissance of sorts since Nick Foles became their starting quarterback. I see Foles leading the Bears over the Buccaneers in a close one, 30-27.

The Houston Texans have had a dismal start to the season which resulted in the firing of head coach and general manager Bill O'Brien. The Texans are at home this week against division rival Jacksonville Jaguars. I believe the Texans will pull out the win under interim coach Romeo Crennel, 28-21.

The Atlanta Falcons. Oh boy, the Atlanta Falcons. They have not been able to recover from their Super Bowl LI debacle. Since that game, the Falcons have had a record of 19-18. They are 0-4 so far this season. The Falcons will get their first win of the season against division rival Carolina Panthers on Sunday, 35-24.
