Countdown to 2020 Super Bowl LIV Miami: Super Bowl 50

We’re just a little more than two weeks from kicking off Super Bowl 54 weekend in Miami, Florida! We’re heading back to 2016; Super Bowl 50, between the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers.

February 7, 2016

The Denver Broncos walked away Super Bowl 50 champions, 24-10 winners over the Carolina Panthers. And in a season that saw turmoil following injury, former Indianapolis Colt Peyton Manning walked away with his second Super Bowl victory, in what would be his final game of his career.

“All I know is, I’m going to go out tonight and drink a lot of beer…drink a lot of Budweiser,” Manning said to CBS Sports analyst Jim Nantz when asked about pondering retirement.

Despite being Manning’s final game as a player, it was the Broncos defense that stepped up and dominated the game. Broncos linebacker Von Miller, who would go on to be named Super Bowl 50 MVP, recorded six tackles, 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble, which ended up leading to the game-clinching touchdown for the Broncos.

Carolina Panthers quarterback and league MVP Cam Newton, who had been phenomenal all season, struggled in Super Bowl 50, garnering only 265 yards and one interception on 18-of-41 passing. Newton was hurried over 20 times in the game, being hit 10 times and sacked 7 times.
