SANTA CLARA -- T.J. Ward slipped twice on the same play.
Blame that turf.
The Carolina Panthers had the best regular-season record before losing Super Bowl 50. And they are among three favorites to emerge from Super Bowl 51 as champions.
SANTA CLARA – Peyton Manning might be the second quarterback to end an NFL career on the highest possible note.
SANTA CLARA – Raiders quarterback Derek Carr has met Denver edge rusher Von Miller several times. The exchanges are never pleasant.
In the end, Super Bowl L was not about Cam Newton OR Peyton Manning, no matter how hard the outside world tried.
