Broncos defense dominates Panthers in Super Bowl 50



Santa Clara~ I think we can all agree that the Denver Broncos defense of the ages basically handed legendary quarterback Peyton Manning the Vince Lombardi Trophy in most likely Manning’s final game.

Led by Von Miller, the Denver defense sacked Carolina Panthers stud QB Cam Newton a Super Bowl record, six times forcing him to fumble twice Sunday evening at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California. Miller, who was named the MVP (Most Valuable Player) of Super Bowl 50, recorded 2 and a half sacks while forcing 2 fumbles in the Broncos defense’s beating of NFL MVP, Cam Newton, who never really had a chance. Denver, a 5 and a half point underdog leading into the big game, took a 3-point lead on their opening possession and never lost the lead. On that opening drive the 39-year-old Manning completed 3 of his first four passes for 46 yards, but then he got sacked a few times and he started playing poorly.

Carolina’s offense just never got going with running back Jonathon Stewart nursing a right ankle injury. The fact that Broncos secondary specialists Chris Harris Jr. Aqib Talib, and T.J Ward manhandled Carolina receivers Ted Ginn Jr., Devin Funchess, Greg Olsen, and Philly Brown. the main reason that the Panthers offense struggled was that often many times Cam Newton was under pressure from Danny Trevathan, Von Miller, Vance Walker, DeMarcus Ware, and Malik Jackson.

Peyton Manning refused to say whether he was retiring, telling reporting he’d give it some time to reflect after the Super Bowl victory.
