A Panthers fan seriously trolled the Atlanta Falcons during Thursday night’s exhibition game with Pittsburgh.
The fan wore a white Panthers jersey with the number 25 on it. Above the number on the back, where the last name would normally go, he had “ATL LED BY.”
So he was saying “Atlanta led by 25,” referring the Falcons -- the Panthers’ arch rival -- leading New England by 25 points in the Super Bowl last February before suffering perhaps the worst breakdown in Super Bowl history, losing 34-28 in overtime.
Of course, Atlanta fans had a good time taking a few shots at the Panthers last year after Carolina went 15-1 in the 2015 regular-season, ran through the playoffs, and laid an egg in the Super Bowl, losing to offensively-challenged Denver Broncos.
