Denver Broncos win Super Bowl 50

The Denver Broncos have defeated the Carolina Panthers to win Super Bowl 50. The Broncos won 24-10 from Levi Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif.

Gary Kubiak, the Broncos head coach, is now a perfect 4-0 as an assistant coach or head coach in the Super Bowl. He’s also the first to win the Super Bowl for the same team that he was a player with.

Kubiak came to the team in the off-season after being the Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator. He replaced John Fox, who mutually agreed to leave the team last year.

Kubiak said in the off-season that if he left the Ravens, it would only be for the Broncos, whose good friend is John Elway. The legendary Broncos dedicated the win to owner Pat Bowlen.

Peyton Manning is the first NFL player to win 200 games in his career. He’s also the first quarterback to win Super Bowls with multiple teams.

He was noncommittal about his retirement when CBS Sports Sideline reporter Tracy Wolfson asked. He said he would take a few days to think about it, which he didn’t want it out staged the Broncos win by doing so.

Von Miller was named the Super Bowl 50 MVP. He had 2.5 sacks and forced two fumbles, which led to two Broncos touchdowns.

C. J. Anderson scored on a game-winning, two-yard rushing touchdown. Manning then hit Bennie Fowler for the two-point conversion.

Anderson has scored a touchdown in four of his past five games.

The Super Bowl would give the Manning brothers four of the past 10 wins in the big game. Now, both of the brothers have two rings apiece.

It’ll be nearly a decade between Manning’s Super Bowl wins. His’ Indianapolis Colts defeated the Chicago Bears in 2006.

Also, with this being his final game, Manning will go out with a Super Bowl win. Elway, the man who helped bring him to Denver, was the other to do that.

Both kickers traded field goals in the second half.

Manning threw an interception to Panthers defensive end Kony Ealy in the second quarter. It was Manning’s first postseason interception in a 164 attempts.

However, on the following possession, the Panthers went 3-and-out, so the impact was minimal.

While the Broncos have one turnover, the Panthers have two turnovers, both by Mike Tolbert.

After a Brad Nortman punt, Broncos returner Jordan Norwood took the ball down the sideline for a 61-yard punt return. It was the longest punt return in Super Bowl history.

The Broncos were called for a holding penalty on 4th and 1. That brought out Brandon McManus, who connected on a 33-yard field goal for the 13-7 lead.

Jonathan Stewart, who went out of the game earlier with a short-term injury, cut the Broncos lead to 10-7. He scored on a one-yard rushing touchdown.

The Panthers trailed 10-0 in the game. They’ve trailed by 10 or more points three times — and they’ve won each game, but wasn’t able to do it in this game.

The Broncos took the 10-0 lead when Malik Jackson scooped-and-scored on a fumble recovery. Miller sacked and stripped the ball away from Newton for an 11-yard loss.

It was Jackson’s first career touchdown.

McManus made a 34-yard field goal to give the Broncos the 3-0 lead at 10:44 in the first quarter.
