Now that the Super Bowl has finally come and gone—putting all sports fans in a rut already waiting for next season—we’re taking a look back at some of the things that the game itself gave us.
On top of a major blowout, it also gave us a championship quarterback who won in his second season in the league.

Sure, Wilson might not blow up the stat sheet with eye-popping numbers like Robert Griffin III or Andrew Luck have done the past two seasons, but he’s a winner, a leader and one of the most polished passers because of what he knows he can and can’t do on the football field.
Those are just a few reasons why the Hawks will be defending their championship next season.
