NFL Week Six Round Up – The Fans Are Split

Posted on October 8, 2019

By Annalece Anhalt-Slaughter

Good news for fans of the San Francisco 49ers and New England Patriots – your teams are still undefeated! Bad news for fans of the Cincinnati Bengals and Miami Dolphins – your teams are still winless. We’ll keep our fingers crossed for you. The fans seemed to have a tough time making hard decisions on some of these match-ups. The votes were split on three separate games, so they ended up with 6-5-3 with their picks, bringing their season record to 52-33-7. Now for a breakdown of each pick – bold indicates the winner of the game, italics indicate who the fans selected.

  • New York Giants vs. New England Patriots
  • Carolina Panthers vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – fans were split on this match-up!
  • Washington Redskins vs. Miami Dolphins – another tie for the fans
  • New Orleans Saints vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
  • Cincinnati Bengals vs. Baltimore Ravens
  • Seattle Seahawks vs. Cleveland Browns
  • Philadelphia Eagles vs. Minnesota Vikings
  • Houston Texans vs. Kansas City Chiefs
  • Atlanta Falcons vs. Arizona Cardinals – one more tie this week
  • San Francisco 49ers vs. Los Angeles Rams
  • Tennessee Titans vs. Denver Broncos
  • Dallas Cowboys vs. New York Jets
  • Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Los Angeles Chargers
  • Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers

Don’t forget, fans! NFL Week 7 picks open up TOMORROW on Twitter! And now, here are some of our favorite moments from Week 6:

  • Eli Manning might be benched, but that doesn’t mean he won’t continue to give the internet nothing but amazing opportunities to poke fun at him.


  • Move over, *NSYNC. The Seahawks not only defeated the Browns, but they proved they’re better dancers than all of you.
  • Russell Wilson led his team to a TD without the aid of his helmet communication system. It’s *almost* like he’s earning his paycheck out there!
  • The Detroit Lions showed up at Lambeau to remind you why their season isn’t dead with a perfectly executed Flea Flicker for their first play of the game!
  • There were a LOT of things going wrong in the Lions-Packers game last night, but the only thing worse than the officiating had to be Rodgers’ receiving core.

NFL Week Five Round Up – And Then There Were Two

Posted on October 8, 2019

By Annalece Anhalt-Slaughter

Going in to NFL Week 5, there were three teams that remained undefeated, but then the Indianapolis Colts showed up to do WORK. The Kansas City Chiefs tried to bring home the win, but clearly they could have tried harder. Now, only the San Francisco 49ers and New England Patriots remain undefeated. One of these comes as a huge shock to us, the other doesn’t, considering they have the easiest schedule in the league. Just like last week, fans went 8-6-1 with their picks, bringing their season record to 46-28-4. Now for a breakdown of each pick – bold indicates the winner of the game, italics indicate who the fans selected.

  • Los Angeles Rams vs. Seattle Seahawks
  • New York Jets vs. Philadelphia Eagles
  • Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Carolina Panthers
  • Minnesota Vikings vs. New York Giants
  • Atlanta Falcons vs. Houston Texans
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. New Orleans Saints
  • Buffalo Bills vs. Tennessee Titans
  • Arizona Cardinals vs. Cincinnati Bengals
  • New England Patriots vs. Washington Redskins
  • Baltimore Ravens vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
  • Chicago Bears vs. Oakland Raiders
  • Denver Broncos vs. Los Angeles Chargers
  • Green Bay Packers vs. Dallas Cowboys
  • Indianapolis Colts vs. Kansas City Chiefs
  • Cleveland Browns vs. San Francisco 49ers – the fans were split on this match-up, so we have another tie!

Don’t forget, fans! NFL Week 6 picks open up TOMORROW on Twitter! And now, here are some of our favorite moments from Week 5:

  • Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey scored an absolutely INSANE in Sunday’s win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The only way it could have been better is if it were called in Spanish. Oh, it was? Perfect!
  • Oh, Baker. The Browns QB snubbed the San Francisco 49ers Team Captains during the pre-game coin toss, so Joey Bosa decided to get a little payback by ‘planting the flag’ in Santa Clara.
  • Sadly, Mason Rudolph sustained a concussion during the Steelers-Ravens game on Sunday. To make matters worse, the cart taking him off the field broke down and he ultimately had to be carried away. We get the feeling EVERY cart at EVERY stadium will be fully charged before Week 6 action kicks off.

  • Travis Kelce is all of us, getting fired up at coaches when you’re losing a game you SHOULD be winning.
  • And last, but certainly not least, the camera crew caught Jerry “Crypt Keeper” Jones channeling every Cowboys fan by getting frustrated with Dak Prescott.

NFL Week Four Round Up – What Just Happened?

Posted on October 1, 2019

By Annalece Anhalt-Slaughter

Talk about a week of upsets! Don’t worry fans, you weren’t the only ones to miss some of these picks. Who would have thought that Tampa Bay would take down the Los Angeles Rams? Or that the Cleveland Browns would beat the Baltimore Ravens? You still pulled off a winning record this week though! Fans are ending NFL Week 4 at 8-6-1, bringing their season record to 38-22-3. Now for a breakdown of each pick – bold indicates the winner of the game, italics indicate who the fans selected.

  • Philadelphia Eagles vs. Green Bay Packers
  • Washington Redskins vs. New York Giants – Here’s your tie! The fans were split on who would take the win, but ultimately the Giants brought home the W.
  • Kansas City Chiefs vs. Detroit Lions
  • Tennessee Titans vs. Atlanta Falcons
  • Cleveland Browns vs. Baltimore Ravens
  • Oakland Raiders vs. Indianapolis Colts
  • New England Patriots vs. Buffalo Bills
  • Carolina Panthers vs. Houston Texans
  • Los Angeles Chargers vs. Miami Dolphins
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Los Angeles Rams
  • Seattle Seahawks vs. Arizona Cardinals
  • Minnesota Vikings vs. Chicago Bears
  • Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Denver Broncos
  • Dallas Cowboys vs. New Orleans Saints
  • Cincinnati Bengals vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

This week felt like more of a fluke, but as always, we encourage the fans to do their research before making NFL Week 5 picks tomorrow on Twitter! And now, some highlights from the Week 3 action:

  • Literally no words are needed for this clip. Thank you to the internet for providing such quality content.

    This is too good 😂 #billbelichick 🎹 🎶

    A post shared by Kelson Auger (@theboon06) on

  • Texans QB Deshaun Watson may have just secured his first job when the time comes to retire after breaking down the Panthers defense like a pro. If only his team’s coaching staff could see what he did, they may have pulled out a win.
  • Dak Prescott literally creating meme gold when throwing into quadruple coverage in a last-ditch attempt to defeat the New Orleans Saints. This might have been the most exciting moment of the week’s most boring game.
  • This fan that just RIPPED into the Atlanta Falcons at half time, living out every disgruntled fan’s dream.
  • This unbelievable pass from Matt Stafford. We’re still not sure how he made this sorcery happen, but we don’t see him pulling it off again any time soon.

NFL Week Three Round Up – Fans Favor Home

Posted on September 24, 2019

By Annalece Anhalt-Slaughter

This week, it became clear that the fans like to favor the home team, and they probably shouldn’t based on how everything shook out during NFL Week 3. This week the fans went 9-7, bringing their season record to 30-16-2. Now for a breakdown of each pick – bold indicates the winner of the game, italics indicate who the fans selected.

  • Tennessee Titans vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
  • Miami Dolphins vs. Dallas Cowboys
  • Cincinnati Bengals vs. Buffalo Bills
  • Detroit Lions vs. Philadelphia Eagles
  • New York Jets vs. New England Patriots
  • Atlanta Falcons vs. Indianapolis Colts
  • Oakland Raiders vs. Minnesota Vikings
  • Baltimore Ravens vs. Kansas City Chiefs
  • Denver Broncos vs. Green Bay Packers
  • Carolina Panthers vs. Arizona Cardinals
  • New York Giants vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
  • New Orleans Saints vs. Seattle Seahawks
  • Houston Texans vs. Los Angeles Chargers
  • Pittsburgh Steelers vs. San Francisco 49ers
  • Los Angeles Rams vs. Cleveland Browns
  • Chicago Bears vs. Washington Redskins

Fans – we hope you do a little more research before making your picks for NFL Week 4 tomorrow on Twitter! We don’t know how much the below clips will help you with making your picks, but at the very least you’ll be entertained! Here are a few highlights from the Week 3 action:

  • Football, on occasion, helps people show their worst sides. It’s just one of those facts of life that even the Dean of Admissions and Penn can’t deny. Shout out to the camera crew who caught Eric J. Furda getting a little expressive during the Eagles-Lions game.
  • That moment when Patrick Mahomes remembered he’s still under his rookie contract and probably shouldn’t risk an injury.
  • The Washington Redskins know all about finding creative solutions to problems – just not on the field. That area is still a total mess for them.
  • Khalil Mack continues to show us why 1) he is worth every penny, 2) we should be afraid of going against him in a fight and 3) to have a good medical team on standby after playing the Bears.
  • Yesterday we shared our favorite instance of shade being thrown at a football player when a Philadelphia local not only saved children from a burning building, but called out Nelson Agholor’s poor performance in his news interview. Algholor, who is currently 18 of 28 this season on receptions, has since invited the local hero to a game.

NFL Week Two Round Up – Keep It Up, Fans!

Posted on September 17, 2019

By Annalece Anhalt-Slaughter

Once again, on Wednesday, we had the fans vote on the outcome of every NFL Week 2 match up on Twitter, and they didn’t necessarily do worse than last week – but not much better either. This week the fans went 11-5, bringing their season record to 21-9-2. Now for a breakdown of each pick – bold indicates the winner of the game, italics indicate who the fans selected.

  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Carolina Panthers
  • Arizona Cardinals vs. Baltimore Ravens
  • Los Angeles Chargers vs. Detroit Lions
  • Indianapolis Colts vs. Tennessee Titans
  • San Francisco 49ers vs. Cincinnati Bengals
  • Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Houston Texans
  • Minnesota Vikings vs. Green Bay Packers 
  • Dallas Cowboys vs. Washington Redskins
  • Seattle Seahawks vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
  • Buffalo Bills vs. New York Giants
  • New England Patriots vs. Miami Dolphins
  • Kansas City Chiefs vs. Oakland Raiders
  • New Orleans Saints vs. Los Angeles Rams
  • Chicago Bears vs. Denver Broncos
  • Philadelphia Eagles vs. Atlanta Falcons
  • Cleveland Browns vs. New York Jets

We hope the fans are ready to make their picks for Week 3 tomorrow night on Twitter! More importantly, the shake up in QBs for multiple teams will hopefully guide the fans to make the right picks. We want to see you continue your winning record, so be sure to catch up on all the must-see moments from the weekend you may have missed. Here are a few highlights from the Week 2 action:

  • Obviously, the Patriots completing shutting out the Dolphins was rough to watch – we even asked the fans if they laughed at the outcome or felt the need to ‘pour one out’ for Miami. But when you take into consideration that the Dolphins literally ducked to avoid catching a ball, you can no longer feel bad for the team and their dumpster fire season.
  • Speaking of dumpster fires! A speaker caught on fire at Nissan Stadium ahead of the Indianapolis Colts-Tennessee Titans game. While some used footage to reference the Dolphins season, the Colts social media team used it to get their fans ‘fired’ up.
  • Forget the Atlanta Falcons – the NFL Officials are now the biggest rival for the New Orleans Saints. This couldn’t have been more clear after a play was blown dead when it very much wasn’t. Sure, I might be a very disgruntled Saints fan, but Cam Jordan’s post-game interview is too good not to include here. Don’t worry fans, this will NOT be an issue in the FCFL!

  • OBJ hit the field last night to remind the Giants what they’re missing out on – and broke his own record in the process.
  • Technically this is more of a look ahead to Week 3, but the Giants have benched Eli Manning and Steelers’ Ben Roethlisberger is out for the rest of the season – so naturally someone needed to use this opportunity to make Twitter gold.

NFL Week One Round Up – How’d the Fans Do?

Posted on September 10, 2019

By Annalece Anhalt-Slaughter

Wednesday night we had the fans vote on the outcome of every NFL Week 1 match up on Twitter, and we have to say, they didn’t do half bad. With a final score of 10-4-2 (see the notes next to the picks to explain the ties), the fans proved they know their stuff! Now for a breakdown of each pick – bold indicates the winner of the game, italics indicate who the fans selected. We want to see more of these teams overlapping next week!

  • Green Bay Packers vs. Chicago Bears
  • Kansas City Chiefs vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
  • Atlanta Falcons vs. Minnesota Vikings – the fans were split 50/50 on this one, so we won’t count it as a loss
  • Tennessee Titans vs. Cleveland Browns
  • Buffalo Bills vs. New York Jets
  • Baltimore Ravens vs. Miami Dolphins
  • Washington Redskins vs. Philadelphia Eagles
  • Los Angeles Ramsvs. Carolina Panthers
  • Indianapolis Colts vs. Los Angeles Chargers
  • Cincinnati Bengals vs. Seattle Seahawks
  • New York Giants vs. Dallas Cowboys
  • San Francisco 49ers vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
  • Detroit Lions vs. Arizona Cardinals – sorry fans, this game ended in a tie!
  • Pittsburgh Steelers vs. New England Patriots
  • Houston Texans vs. New Orleans Saints
  • Denver Broncos vs. Oakland Raiders

We hope the fans are ready to make their picks for Week 2 tomorrow night on Twitter! We want to see you continue your winning record, so be sure to catch up on all the must-see moments from the weekend you may have missed. Here are a few of our favorites from the Week 1 action:

  • The return of the Collinsworth Slide. Need we say more?
  • Kyler Murray was sacked by his own guard in his debut against the Detroit Lions. Sure, the team rallied to tie the game at the end of OT, but this is just too good not to share with the fans that may have missed it.
  • This entire call. We won’t give Pittsburgh Steeler center Maurkice Pouncey a harder time than the announcers did, but damn. It hurts every time we watch this. Let’s just hope he learns his lesson before the Steelers face the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.
  • You already know how much we hate to see a game be won off of a field goal. Unfortunately for the Houston Texans, a terrible defensive call was made that put the New Orleans Saints into field goal range.
  • And last, but absolutely not least, the fans made a difference during Monday Night Football! For whatever reason, the folks at ESPN decided to have the graphic for downs be yellow – which basically meant the entire first half had fans thinking there was a flag on every call. Thankfully, the fans took to Twitter to demand change, and EPSN pulled through.

How Many Tight Ends Does It Take To Replace Gronk?

Posted on July 24, 2019

By Annalece Anhalt-Slaughter

Answer: more than five, apparently. Earlier today, the New England Patriots signed Lance Kendricks to fill the Gronk-sized hole on the roster. But it should be noted that he certainly was not the only one signed for that position. The folks at For The Win! put together a timeline of all the transactions (and other notable events) the Pats have made:

  1. Signed Matt LaCosse, March 15
  2. Signed Austin Seferian-Jenkins, April 10
  3. Traded Jacob Hollister to the Seattle Seahawks, April 29
  4. Signed undrafted free agent Andrew Beck, May 4
  5. Signed Ben Watson, May 10
  6. Watson gets suspended for four games, Late May
  7. Released Seferian-Jenkins, June 4
  8. Traded with the Detroit Lions for Michael Roberts, June 13
  9. Trade for Roberts falls apart, June 14
  10. Signed Lance Kendricks, July 24

With 43 days left until the start of the regular NFL season, we wouldn’t be surprised if there were a few move moves made by the Patriots to replace Gronk. Now, we know the fans won’t go this HAM in an effort to replace one of their players after they hang up their jersey for good, but we do think they’ll be extremely thorough in the scouting process. It’s one thing to watch along with the draft and throw in your votes for who will make the cut, but it’s another to make sure the best talent ends up at the draft! So keep those eyes peeled fans, make sure you’re scouting out the best talent to end up on your team!

Best of the 2019 NFL Draft

Posted on April 29, 2019

By Annalece Anhalt-Slaughter

Over the last few days, we lived and breathed the NFL Draft for you, because we know it can be a LOT to take in. So we have you covered fans! Behold, some of the best (or worst, depending on how you look at it) moments of the 2019 NFL Draft!

Fans of the Oakland Raiders were left VERY confused by their team selecting Clemson DE Clelin Ferrell with their first pick.

The Buffalo Bills got draft pick approval from their biggest fan, Pancho Billa.

Reggie Wayne taunts Tennessee Titans fans.

Pete Carroll took off his shirt. Really.

Pat McAfee stole his job (back) from an orangutan.

The Baltimore Ravens made draft history in the sweetest way.

And one more moment that isn’t *technically* from the draft, but still very much draft related: Co-Founder Ray Austin called our bluff, and showed that he can still rock the hell out of the suit he wore to the 1997 NFL Draft. We know when to admit we’re wrong, Ray!

Overall, the draft was a ton of fun to watch, but now we’re just counting down the days until the inaugural FCFL Draft! We’re not going to spoil everything we have planned for you fans, but we want to know what you’re expecting from us. We think you’ll want to be able to immerse yourself in the experience. We’re pretty sure you plan on having a ton of fun while calling the shots. Are there any specifics that we’re missing? Let us know!
