The loss to the Buccaneers was definitely their upset of the year. They were set to shake off last weeks loss and they delivered. A nail biting late touchdown turned things around and helped them save face. Smith was quoted as saying “For our football team, we needed this.” And wow did they ever !
Amid injury crisis along with humiliating losses, Tampa Bay Buccaneers needed something to pull out of the hat and so did they against one of the bookies favorite Steelers. The bookmakers have heavily favored Steelers to comfortbaly roll over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but the end result was a huge surprise for fans, pundits as well as analysts.
Everyone thought that the Steelers were going to win the game. Even during the game, everyone still thought that the Steelers were going to win. However, it came down to the very last few minutes of the game when the Buccaneers pulled off an impressive and un-expected win! This has for sure been the upset of the year.
I think there is far more adventure in the making in the NFL. The teams are shook up and each is trying to make changes and revisions to improve their teams each week. This early in the season I think is a little early to determine the upset for the year.
