DeMarcus Ware collected five tackles and two sacks in Sunday's Super Bowl 50 victory over Carolina.
Ware ended any hopes of a big play to end Carolina's first half by nailing Cam Newton for a sack. Nearly an entire half later, Carolina was down two scores and in hurry-up mode. On 2nd and 10 Newton spun out, avoided Malik Jackson and found himself smothered by Ware for a 14-yard loss. Ware waited 11 years to make his first big playoff push and didn't disappoint. When Denver drafted Shane Ray in the first round and watched Shaq Barrett impress while Ware's back hampered him during the season, the veteran looked like a potential cap casualty. With 5.5 sacks in his final five games, however, Ware has changed the conversation.
