!

The Carolina Panthers 49-15 win over the Arizona Cardinals Sunday night not only won a spot in the Super Bowl 50 pero hizo historia para los Latinos. With the win, Panthers head coach Ron Rivera did what only one other Latino heach coach has done – take a team to the Super Bowl.

The other Latino head coach was Tom Flores who was the the first and only Latino to win a Super Bowl as a head coach. In fact won twice when he coached the Oakland Raiders, winners of Super Bowl XV, and when he coached the Los Angeles Raiders, winners of Super Bowl XVIII. Rivera is considered the first Latino to play in the NFL when he was drafted by the Chicago Bears in 1984. Now he has a chance to make more history.
