All-day breakfast joints are a glorious thing. They're also a big reason behind the success the Carolina Panthers have experienced this season, apparently.

Defensive end Mario Addison believes the Panthers' close proximity to 24-hour restaurant chain Waffle House aided in their 15-1 season.

"Oh, it's definitely an advantage," Addison told Kevin Clark of The Wall Street Journal. "Country ham, four eggs-scrambled - with cheese."

Addison isn't the only Panthers player addicted to Waffle House. Quarterback Cam Newton has celebrated wins at the restaurant and said two years ago that he was "on a first-name basis" with the staff.

It's not just about convenience, though. There's also an economical benefit to dining at Waffle House.

Safety Tre Boston said he visits the chain about "two times a week" when he's back in his college town of Chapel Hill, N.C.

"You get the All-Star Special," he said. "But you go with the toast. Some people go with the biscuit, but if you go with the toast, you can take the bread, eggs, ham, and hash browns and create a second sandwich. All of a sudden, you've got two meals in one. You can stretch it out."

If the Panthers end up winning Super Bowl 50, you know where they'll be celebrating.
