Okay, precedent-watchers, you can come in off the window ledge now.
The Washington Redskins have lost their last home game before the election, therefore ensuring a win for the challenger.
History dictates that the Panthers 21-13 victory over the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field bodes well for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. In the 18 presidential elections that have taken place since the Redskins moved to Washington in 1937, 17 have been predicted by the team's performance in its final home game prior to the election.
If the Redskins win at home, the incumbent party usually wins the presidential election. If the Redskins lose at home, the challenger usually prevails.
There you have it. 17 out of 18 times it's been absolutely correct, so you can put down the hari-kiri dagger. Romney's got it in the bag.
