I dunno...the Iggles, Texans, and Bellicheetahs winning don't sound like upset specials to me.

Just like in week 1, I don't believe your late Thursday Night Football pick.

Wait...they lost?

The last time the Steelers visited Oakland, Ben Roethlisberger threw four interceptions, two of which were returned for touchdowns, in a 20-13 Raiders victory.
The Steelers have manhandled the Raiders twice since that time - both at Heinz Field - including a 35-3 dismantling in 2010.
Like those two other teams the Steelers beat up on, this Oakland team looks like a mess.
The Raiders can't run the ball, putting up 68 yards in their first two games, can't stop the run, allowing 142 yards per game on the ground, and can't rush the passer, picking up just two sacks.
Other than that, they're fine.
Troy Polamalu and James Harrison will sit out again for the Steelers, but Roethlisberger and his receivers are healthy.
The Steelers haven't had much of a running game themselves, but they'll find one against the Raiders as they adjust from all of the outside runs they've attempted in the first two weeks to a more straight-ahead style.
Take Pittsburgh, which is favored by four points, to win this one, 24-13.
What is this... I don't even...
Considering 5 out of your 8 picks were wrong and 1 was not an upset (Houston) i think you need to better understand the word upset...
10-6 on the week. 29-19 overall.
