Super Bowl 50 is set. The Carolina Panthers will face the Denver Broncos at Levi Stadium in two weeks on February 7th.

The Panthers defeated the Arizona Cardinals, 49-15 at Bank of America Stadium. It’s the most points scored in an NFC Conference Championship game in NFL history.

Panthers star linebacker Luke Kuechly gave the Panthers a 49-15 lead when he picked off Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer and returned it for a pick-six. As he was in the end zone celebrating with the fans, a fan fell onto the field and Kuechly went to check on him.

Panthers rookie wide receiver Devin Funchess made it 42-15 when he caught a five-yard touchdown from quarterback Cam Newton.

The Cardinals made it 34-15 when Palmer hit tight end Darren Fells for a 21-yard touchdown. Rookie wide receiver J. J. Nelson converted the two-point conversion.

Newton also had a 12-yard rushing touchdown in the third for the 34-7 lead. Panthers kicker Graham Gano made it 27-7 when he made a 21-yard field goal.

Newton had a one-yard run to put the Panthers up 24-7. Four minutes earlier, the Cardinals got on the board when rookie running back David Johnson scored on a one-yard run.

The Panthers led 17-0 in the first quarter. Gano gave them a 3-0 before touchdowns by wide receivers Ted Ginn Jr. and Corey Brown.

Ginn Jr. came to the Panthers after playing with the Cardinals last season. Ginn Jr. was also with the Panthers in 2013.

After the game, head coach Ron Rivera gave Ginn Jr. the game ball.
