Yesterday, the Carolina Panthers ended the Seattle Seahawks attempt to make it to three straight Super Bowls with a 31-24 NFC divisional round victory.
From the music the Panthers played in the pre game to their sack dances, part of Carolina's strategy seemed to be to rattle Russell Wilson by evoking his girlfriend Ciara's ex Future.
The strategy almost backfired, as the Seahawks came storming back from a 31-0 deficit.
But Seattle came up a bit short, and the Internet has picked off where the Panthers left off in terms of bashing Wilson with Future.
Future really put out a soundtrack for the downfall of Russell Wilson today...God is just! #PurpleReign pic.twitter.com/yFbqinguWU— Ant (@InAntWeTrust) January 17, 2016
