This has been a long time coming, but now we have the Super Bowl. Just like my Divisional Round, my conference championship predictions were on point and I had the Carolina Panthers facing the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50. I’m looking forward to seeing this Super Bowl, whether it’s just the excitement, the hype or the Super Bowl commercials, this should be a really good game. On one hand, we have the Denver Broncos lead by Peyton Manning, who could be playing his final game and what better way to cap off his Hall of Fame career by going out on top. We head to the Carolina Panthers, whose lead by Cam Newton, the likely league MVP and arguably the most popular and most polarizing figure in the NFL. Let’s see how I think things will go between the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50.
Welcome to Super Bowl 50!! The Carolina Panthers come into this game with only one blemish on their record the entire season and the favorite coming into the game. Throughout the season, Cam Newton has garnered all the attention and deservedly so, but the defense is one of the league’s best and score just as much as the offense. The Panthers road to the Super Bowl started by beating the Seahawks in the Divisional Round and then the Cardinals in the Conference championship. The Denver Broncos come into this game with the best defense in the league and one that has caused havoc all year. The defense is the reason Denver made it to the point, but Peyton Manning played a mistake-free game to beat the New England Patriots in the conference championship. This has been one of the worse seasons for Manning as he was dealing with multiple injuries that saw him miss quite a few games and he emerged in the second half of the final game of the year. Does Peyton have one more great game in him? Will the Panthers frustrate Manning with their swarming defense? Can the Broncos put as much pressure on Cam Newton like they did Tom Brady? This should be a really good game between these two, but in the end I believe the Panthers defense will cause fits for Manning more than the Broncos pressuring Newton. I’m going with the Panthers to hold up the Lombardi Trophy in the end!!
Carolina Panthers Win 31-17
