We've been driving the Carolina bandwagon since the preseason, so why stop now? Although home-field advantage still makes San Francisco the favorite, the game is a lot closer than people think, and the Carolina front seven is a strong weapon against San Francisco's running game.

After his historic day against Dallas, Calvin Johnson's on pace for the best season in terms of Win Probability Added by a non-quarterback since 1999. Is it about time we start giving the receivers the respect they deserve for the value they bring to these pass-happy offenses?
