Broncos Stuff Newton, Panthers, Win Super Bowl 50

It was supposed to be a coronation for Cam Newton.

Instead it was a master class of defensive football, as the Denver Broncos locked down the league MVP and the Carolina Panthers en route to a 24-10 victory in Super Bowl 50 in San Francisco on Sunday.

Newton, the offensive juggernaut who ran roughshod over the NFL this season, was harassed all night by Denver’s speedy defensive front line, particularly Von Miller, who had 2.5 of the team’s 7 sacks while picking up the game’s MVP honors.

Miller stripped Newton during a first-quarter sack deep in Panthers territory, and the fumble was recovered in the end zone by Malik Jackson to put Denver up 10-0, and the Broncos never looked back.

The game was a fitting end for Peyton Manning, who likely played his last game in Denver and possibly ever. The future Hall of Famer, who at 39 was the oldest starting quarterback in Super Bowl history, wasn’t much of a factor but did just enough to get his second championship ring.
