Frankly, not a very good week for Upset Watch, with most lines at three points or less. No game really sticks out as a possible upset, but Green Bay-Houston comes closest because Green Bay really isn't playing like a 2-3 team. (Houston, however, is playing like a 5-0 team, which is why this wasn't the easiest week to pick an Upset Watch.) Cover Watch is Tennessee-Pittsburgh.

A closer look shows that the 3-1 Bengals have gotten all the breaks, and the 1-3 Dolphins have not, but the two teams are relatively equal. Plus, Cover Watch looks at the return of Brady vs. Manning.

Today's upset watch looks at the Bears, fifth in VOA and underdogs on the road against Dallas, 18th. Two similar teams, with one big difference: special teams. Special teams are also the secret behind our Cover Watch, Tennessee at Houston.

This week: How the replacement refs can help the Cardinals surprise the Eagles, and why the placement of cornerbacks is critically important in this game. "Cover Watch" looks at San Francisco at Minnesota. A change this week: From now on, we're only going to cover games where the line is at least three points.

Once upon a time, the Ravens brought pressure, but Michael Vick was great when pressured. Last week, the Ravens didn't bring as much pressure, and Michael Vick was awful when pressured. What wins out this Sunday?

Debuting a new weekly feature for ESPN Insider: Upset Watch. Each week, I'll be doing game analysis on the most likely upset of the weekend according to the FO Premium picks system. We'll also include a couple paragraphs on the most likely underdog to cover. This week: An overrated Denver defense makes Pittsburgh a smart pick in Week 1, plus why 12.5 is a lot to give Miami against Houston.
