Panthers shut down Redskins' Twitter trash talk

Carolina throttled Washington on Sunday to improve to 10-0. But the real beatdown might have occurred off the field.

The Panthers' social media team engaged in a one-sided battle with Washington on Twitter, making for an even more demoralizing day for anyone with #HTTR (hail to the Redskins) in their bio.

It started after the Redskins account took a jab at the Panthers by declaring, "Carolina is Redskins country," which was met by this zinger:


Give the Redskins credit; they didn't back down.



But, man, would they regret it. Quarterback Cam Newton and his five-touchdown day made sure of that.

Panthers 44, Redskins 16.

And, of course, the Panthers weren't about to let that earlier bit of trash talk slide.



Sorry, Kirk Cousins, but we do like that tweet.

Throw in the towel, this one's a wrap. Hopefully the Dallas Cowboys, Carolina's next opponent, know better than to poke the Panthers.
