    The Panthers lost in bad fashion to the 49ers in their first playoff game, and the Patriots fell in an equally lopsided contest to Denver. 

    So there it is. I’m wrong, all my friends were right, and I’m a bumbling idiot who knows nothing about sports (they told me I had to say that last part).
