Who helps the Panthers win:

Michael Oher, Offensive Tackle

“The Blindside Guy” has bounced back to have an above average season protecting Cam Newton’s blindside. He’ll have his biggest challenge yet blocking big guys like Von Miller or Demarcus Ware. Cam can do a lot with his legs and his arm, but can’t work his magic if he is constantly being harassed; the protection will have to be the best it’s ever been.

Thomas Davis Sr., Linebacker

After breaking his arm in the NFC Championship, Davis underwent a corrective surgery that left him with eight screws in his arm. Immediately after his injury, Davis commented on his plan for the remainder of the season: he plans to play in the Super Bowl. The Broncos will definitely test his strength and see how well he is able to perform with his weaker arm. If he is able to perform at the Pro-Bowl level he played all year with a recently repaired arm, it would be a crime if the Panthers don’t win the Super Bowl.
