The Broncos defense that shut down the Panthers is the mission statement for Ryan Pace and John Fox -- to develop a defense that ensures that the Bears are always in positions to have chances at wins.

The Denver Broncos' suffocating defense stalled Cam Newton and the Panthers, handing Peyton Manning one more Super Bowl championship in a storied career.
