Saquon Barkley could rise to the level of the opponent. He rushed for 194 yards against Southern Cal in a Rose Bowl, 137 against Washington in a Fiesta Bowl and 194 yards against Ohio State. He slapped a 200-yard game on Iowa and 100-yard games on Michigan, Michigan State and Nebraska.
Cameron Wake played two seasons in the CFL and led the league in sacks both times, collecting 16 in 2007 and 23 in 2008. That earned him a return to the NFL with the Miami Dolphins in 2009. He has played the last nine seasons for the Dolphins, collecting 92 sacks.
Kansas City was the last Super Bowl champion to finish first across the board in the four major defensive statistical categories – run, pass, total and scoring defense.

Only twice in Super Bowl history has the champion scored 50 points in a game and Charles was on the winning side in both games – the 49ers’ 55-10 demolition of the Broncos in 1990 and the Cowboys 52-17 pasting of the Bills in 1993.
