The Carolina Panthers have won the Super Bowl! OK, not that Super Bowl. But SportsCenter's Ultimate Playoff Super Bowl, as viewed by analysts Mark Schlereth, Mike Golic and Sean Salisbury.
Jake Delhomme had 24 touchdown passes in 2005.
SportsCenter ranked all 32 NFL teams in key categories -- QBs, RBs, pass catchers, rushing defense and passing defense. The unit rankings were used to determine overall rankings, which were then used in a simulated playoffs. The Carolina Panthers defeated the Washington Redskins in the divisional round, Seattle Seahawks in the conference championship and edged the New England Patriots for the title.
The results of SportsCenter's rankings as well as the bracket for the playoffs can be found below. You can vote on each matchup to see how your opinion compares to that of the analysts.
In addition to the expert analysis, we also asked you to rank the teams in each key category and overall.
