Super Bowl 50 was the topic of discussion on Twitter Sunday night, and Arizona’s athletes took part in the conversation. From the Cardinals, who recently fell short of the big game, to the other local teams, everyone shared their thoughts.

It was a defensive battle between Denver and Carolina, and the Broncos impressed a lot of Cardinals, as well as Coyotes left wing Max Domi.

Tony Jefferson didn’t shy away from expressing his disappointment about not being in the big game, and he even thought about staying away from the television on Sunday.
