Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Ron Rivera's post game message to the Panthers: "Don't let this diminish what you have accomplished. We had a great season. We reached the mountaintop, just not the peak, not the summit. We have an opportunity to get better as a team. That team a couple of years ago got beat in the Super Bowl and look where they are today. We have an opportunity just like they did to become a better team."
