Greatest Football Movie Ever Tournament: Invincible vs Paper Lion

Well, we're on to the last of our first round match-ups in the Professional bracket, and our last match-up gave us what can definitely be termed an upset, as the young upstarts. . .The Replacements. . .knocked off the old standby, North Dallas Forty.
