Luckily for Denver Broncos defensive end Shaun Phillips, he had someone to remind him that his team's loss in Super Bowl XLVIII didn't change anything for those who loved him. The 32-year-old NFL veteran shared an uplifting text message exchange with his son, Jaylen, that should brighten the mood of even the most disappointed fan in Denver.
