Golic: Defense wins championships (1:53)

KC Joyner ESPN Insider 

Two interesting items from the ESPN Stats & Information review of Super Bowl 50. Cam Newton was 5 for 20 for 147 yards (7.4 YPA), zero touchdowns and one interception on vertical passes (aerials thrown 11 or more yards downfield). He had a Total QBR of 17 on those throws, which is really bad considering 50 is the average in that metric. The odd part is Newton was exceptional on stretch vertical passes (aerials thrown 20 or more yards downfield). He went 3 for 5 for 86 yards (17.2 YPA) and a 99 Total QBR. Add it up and it turns out Carolina might have been better suited to let Newton be even more aggressive on downfield throws.

One of these won a second Super Bowl and the other probably will win a couple some day. Super Bowl 50 is in the books.

RECORDS SET IN SUPER BOWL 50 Oldest quarterback to start and win: 39, Peyton Manning Longest punt return: 61 yards, Jordan Norwood Most sacks, both teams: 12, Carolina vs. Denver Fewest total yards, winning team: 194, Denver

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."
