Can these Carolina Panthers win outside the known universe?

The woman in the bright blue shirt sets her card table up across from the pristine Cathedral of St. Louis, which opened in 1794. She has yet to remove her tarot cards from the bag in which she keeps them. So on this beautiful sunshiny morning she instead reads a customer’s palm.

NFL picks: Can’t be as bad as last week

Last week was the worst for me and for most of the people I know. Jacksonville won. Houston beat Cincinnati in Cincinnati. Detroit beat Green Bay in Green Bay. Seattle lost at home. Washington beat New Orleans by 33. Philadelphia lost at home to Miami. Denver lost at home by 16 to Kansas City, and starting quarterback Peyton Manning was benched. And Eli Manning’s New York Giants lost in the final seconds.

I hadn’t seen so many Carolina Panthers jerseys at a road game since I was last in Atlanta. At least a third of the 63,591 fans at Nissan Stadium cheered for Carolina. They had more to cheer and often made more noise. When Luke Kuechly made a tackle (he had a team-high eight) fans filled the air with “Luuuuke!”
