Panthers troll Eagles with great Twitter graphic after comeback win
It looks like the Carolina Panthers were ready with some grade-A material in the event of a win over the Philadelphia Eagles, and they got to use it when it happened.
After scoring 21 unanswered fourth quarter points to stun the Eagles in Philadelphia, the Panthers’ official Twitter account tweeted out a simple piece of artwork that blatantly trolled their opponent.

For a bit of context, Eagles offensive lineman Lane Johnson famously donned a dog mask after their playoff win over Atlanta last season, a reference to the fact that he and his teammates felt disrespected at being home underdogs in the playoffs. It became something of a rallying cry during the team’s Super Bowl run.
Sure enough, the Panthers themselves were underdogs in Sunday’s game. It’s safe to say they felt the same disrespect, and aren’t afraid to have a bit of fun after upsetting those odds.
