interesting. I thought I remembered us getting killed against Carolina earlier that season, but I guess not. That said, I do remember that down the stretch of that season, we were atrocious, regularly getting beat like a pinata which helped us earn that moniker "worst playoff team ever" while Carolina went 10-2 after starting 2-2 and was undefeated at home at 8-0. Think we were something like 10 point dogs going into that game, thus the feeling that it would take a lot of unlikely twist and turns from not only us, but all the other games to end up playing at home in the NFC Title game.
and yup... that game was the ninth biggest upset in playoff history by spread.
