Broncos, Panthers To Square Off In Super Bowl 50


Patriots 18-Broncos 20: Peyton Manning, once again played the role of the most decorated game manager in history. Manning churning his 39-year-old legs around right end for a 12-yard gain and a first down. The play swung the momentum to Denver’s side and Manning is back in the Super Bowl. The Denver Broncos are heading to the Super Bowl, thanks to his efficient offense and a big-play defense that saved a 20-18 victory over Tom Brady and the New England Patriots on Sunday. “It’s been a unique season,” Manning said. “And this game today was a unique football game.”

Cardinals 15-Panthers 49: Cam Newton threw for two touchdowns and ran for two others, and Carolina’s big-play defense stifled the league’s top-ranked offense in a 49-15 romp Sunday for the NFC championship. It was the most points for a winner of an NFC title game.The NFL’s new top man at quarterback Newton will lead the Panthers against five-time MVP Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos in two weeks. “Playing the sheriff,” Newton said of Manning. “We’re going to live in the moment right now. We’re going to be excited.” It will be Newton’s first trip to the Super Bowl and it couldn’t come against a better QB.

This will be the second trip to the big game for the Panthers (17-1), who lost to New England 12 years ago. Meanwhile, Denver will be playing in it’s NFL record tying 8th Super Bowl.
