The Dolphins’ win over the Ravens on Thursday Night Football continued an impressive run of success for big underdogs in the NFL.
Underdogs of more than seven points have gone 4-1 in Week Nine and Week 10. Before Week Nine, underdogs of more than seven points were 1-26 this season.
The four big recent upsets:
- The Dolphins beat the Ravens 22-10 as 7.5-point underdogs.
- The Broncos beat the Cowboys 30-16 as 10-point underdogs.
- The Jaguars beat the Bills 9-6 as 14.5-point underdogs.
- The Titans beat the Rams 28-16 as 7.5-point underdogs.
It’s been a surprising run of upsets. And perhaps a warning for the Colts, Cowboys, Bills, Buccaneers, Steelers and Cardinals, all of whom are favored by more than seven points on Sunday.
