NFL A Purrfect Season Still Possible

I know that the title is a stretch as the Carolina Panthers are the only undefeated team at this point in the season. To know me is to know I’m a puny guy. I was going to write about this last month but opted to write about NASCAR instead. On Nov. 14th there were three undefeated teams and I thought two of them had a good chance of running the table in the regular season. The other undefeated teams were the Cincinnati Bengals and New England Patriots. I thought New England and Carolina had the best chance of being 16 & 0. Unless you have been off the grid for the past month you know that the Bengals have lost 3 games and the Patriots 2 games. That brings us back to the Panthers. With three games remaining, I think the 1972 Miami Dolphins will have to keep the champagne on ice for a while. They are the last and only team to go undefeated and untied then go on to win the Super Bowl. Each year they celebrate the last team to lose their first game. The Panthers face the New York Giants, Atlanta Falcons and Tampa Bay Buccaneers on their quest to finish the regular season undefeated. As of this writing, all of these teams are 6 and 7. The Giants are actually still in the hunt for their division title while the Falcons and Bucs are probably out of the playoffs. As the saying goes, “On any given Sunday…” that’s why they play the games. Momentum, injuries and resting key players will factor in as the Panthers look forward to the playoffs. It depends on what they have as their goals. Home field advantage can be very helpful in the playoffs. I feel they will win the remaining 3 games and have a fairly good chance of getting to the Superbowl. The only question that remains is, “Do Panthers purr?” Keep watching, time will tell.
