The Carolina Panthers are now just 14-1, no longer undefeated after losing to the Atlanta Falcons, and meme makers focus on the loss, but mostly on the bandwagon fans who might be starting to consider a new team to support.
The Falcons won’t make the playoffs, but at least they got some revenge for the arrogant thrashing they received at the hands of the Panthers not too long ago in Charlotte. Everyone on the Falcons team was dabbing at one point or the other. Even the owner after the game, not to mention the players on the field. This was about division hatred, not being classy.
Someone else who is extremely happy are the 1972 Miami Dolphins, who keep popping champagne bottles every time the last undefeated team falls. Their season was shorter, but they still hold the distinction of going undefeated and winning the Super Bowl.
The Panthers will forget about this loss if they win the Super Bowl, but after 18 consecutive regular season wins, they still need to worry about losing home field advantage on the final game of the season, which means they need to take their next game a little bit more seriously.
