LIVE BLOG: Super Bowl 50 - Denver Broncos vs. Carolina Panthers
MANILA, Philippines – The best of the AFC takes on the best of the NFL when the Denver Broncos battle the Carolina Panthers at Super Bowl 50 on Monday, February 8, at the Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
After finishing the regular season with a 12-4 record, Denver won close games against the Pittsburgh Steelers and defending champion New England Patriots in the AFC postseason to get to this stage.
While Peyton Manning has looked way off from his usual dominant self, Denver’s defense has consistently been the best in the NFL all season long and will look to create problems for their opponents.
On the other end, the Panthers have been the class of the NFL over the past few months. Led by league MVP Cam Newton, plus Greg Olsen, Jonathan Stewart, and the rest of its explosive offense, Carolina blitzed through the regular season with a 15-1 record and was dominant in playoff wins against Seattle and Arizona.
The Panthers’ defense is also no joke, and if Manning is having one of those high-interception off games come Monday, Josh Norman and company may make this a quick blowout.
