My picks this week went 8-8, so I obviously had a few surprises, but some were huge.

The Chargers' win over the Seahawks and Bears' win over the Niners were both in the latter category. I think I'd have to pick the Bear's win as the biggest upset of the weekend -- going into the 49ers' new home and ruining their big party. Cutler was as sharp as I've ever seen him.

Would have to say the Bears game not just because of the final score, but the huge comeback needed to do it.

I bet a lot of people on the east coast (like me) turned off their TV's and didn't see the comeback because everyone thought the Niners had it in the bag.

Bears over the 49ers, and Chargers over the Seahawks. I'm suprised people didn't pick the Browns as the biggest suprise. I mean, it wasn't a suprise to me, because I was one of the few on here that picked them to win!

Definitely the Bears/49ers, Seahawks/Chargers and Saints/Browns, too! Saints in close game, I would take them! Great confidence builder for the Browns! Rob Ryan on the hot seat for not getting a stop, letting them march down the field!

The Saints wasn't as much as surprising only because Drew and company are a different team away from home..

The Browns get a lot of flack, but they are a darn good team IMO.....I am pulling for them to do well...

Yes the Saints tend to struggle on the road, especially early on. But, I still say even though they're 0-2, I wouldn't rule them out. Thanks for the well wishes BTW. If the Browns continue to play like they played the last 6 quarters (that first half clusterf*** in Pittsburgh doesn't count) it is going to be a fun season.

I picked the Chargers and Browns in my pick 'em pool and both helped me move up.

My biggest surprise was the Skins beating the Jags 41-10. I know it was the Jags but I just didn't think the skins had that type of offensive fire power to put up that many pts. We will find out next week if the Jags are that bad or if Cousins is that Good
