The Carolina Panthers did better than expected. With a 12-4 record and making the playoffs for the first time in 5 years, it's a safe bet that we can not hide from the public forever.
Look no further than Vegas, who post early odds on which team will win Super Bowl XLIX. Of course, leading the charge are the Seahawks and the 49ers at 5-1, followed by the Broncos at 11-2 and the Patriots at 10-1. The Saints and Packers tie 15-1 with the Eagles and Panthers at 22-1. That's right, you heard me, 22-1. It was this time last year that the Panthers were a 70-1 odds of winning the whole thing. Funny how a winning season can change things.
