The time has finally come – the New England Patriots are no longer undefeated! Yesterday, Tom Brady and his team lost to the underrated Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens. The 37-20 loss for the Patriots will likely leave their defense with nightmares for a week after they allowed themselves to be blown out at home. Who knows, maybe this reality check will serve up some humble pie for the 6-time Super Bowl Champions – and push the Ravens to taking down the only remaining undefeated team in the league: the San Francisco 49ers.

What does that mean for the rest of the season? Well, for starters – ANYTHING Is possible. Sure, the Patriots typically have the easiest schedule every year considering how awful their division is, but if the Super Bowl favorites can lose to the Ravens the same week that the Miami Dolphins finally pull out a win, the Vince Lombardi Trophy could go to anyone. Well, anyone but the Dolphins, Cincinnati Bengals, Atlanta Falcons and Cleveland Browns. We just hope the fans remember this during the inaugural season of the FCFL. Every team will have solid talent on their rosters, so everything comes down to them. Their play calling abilities will be what makes or break their team’s season. So, no matter how good one team may seem, the fans can change everything with their voting power. What else did you expect from the Fan Controlled Football League?
