Thursday Night Football has the Falcons at Panthers.  While not the sexiest matchup in NFL history these teams do have interesting histories.  So we will do Falcons at Panthers  Trivia on Wiki-Pete-ia on the Shemon and Sheppard Show on ESPN Southwest Florida.

And GOOD NEWS!  Our phones are back for the first time since Hurricane Ian!

In case you are not fortunate enough to be lucky caller number nine at 239-337-ESPN, then you are in luck!  Play at home and dazzle your family!  Stump your co-workers with useless knowledge!  Amaze your friends with your newfound intelligence!  Below are the actual questions AND ANSWERS heard during Wiki-Pete-ia on our show.

The Atlanta Falcons have had a long history of losing and frustration however they have been to two Super Bowls.  They lost them both, including one where they blew a record 28-3 lead to the Patriots.  They currently have a strong running game with Cordarrelle Patterson (although the most talked about running back in Georgia these days is Hershel Walker ).

The Panthers have also lost two Super Bowls.  Their first loss is more remembered because of Janet Jackson’s wardrobe malfunction.  Their second loss was in Super 50, which happened to be Peyton Manning’s swan song.

But tonight it is Falcons at Panthers.  Let’s play Wiki-Pete-ia!

Good Luck!
