On February 7, 2016, Super Bowl 50 aired on live television where the Denver Broncos beat the Carolina Panthers, 24 – 10.

The Carolina Panthers were coming off a hot 2015 season losing only one game.   But with the Denver Broncos number one defense, they were going to have to put up quite a fight!  The Bronco’s legendary quarterback, Peyton Manning, and Carolina’s MVP quarterback, Cam Newton, had to play their best games ever to win the Super Bowl.

The game started off quickly with Peyton leading his team off to a field goal with more than twenty yards in the air.  When the Panthers came onto the field to retrieve the kick, the returner ran it back only to the fifteen yard line.  The drive started off with a BANG!  On third down, Von Miller came around the line and knocked the ball right out of Cam Newton’s hand!  Right as the ball got knocked out, the Denver Defense was all over it!  Touchdown, Denver!!  On Carolina’s next drive, they drove the ball down more than 80 yards to get to the 1 yard line.  On first down, they handed the ball off to Mike Tolbert and he jumped right over the defensive players and into the end zone.  Touchdown, Panthers!  The score was 10 to 7.

After halftime and into the fourth quarter, the score was 16 – 10, Broncos.  The Panthers were on a crucial drive that would decide the fate of the game.  It was third down and the Panthers had to convert.  “Hut, Hut!” Cam yelled.  Once the play started, everything went wrong!  Cam started to scramble around with Von Miller right on his tail.  Then Cam stopped and Miller grabbed the ball and took itaway.  The ball was up for grabs!  Then the Denver Defense was all over it again.  Then in a few plays, Peyton handed the ball off and touchdown!  That touchdown wrapped up the game!

The Most Valuable Player, or MVP, was Von Miller, of course.  He caused two fumbles, one for a touchdown in the first quarter.  My favorite part of the game was when the Panthers got their only turnover in their favor with Peyton dropping back and throwing the ball, when Bang!  A defensive lineman got a one-handed pick.  When the Denver Defense got a touchdown, I told my dad that the Denver D was too dominant for the Panthers to handle. 

I am glad I did not go to the game and spend over $2000.  With Peyton probably retiring, he leaves a legacy that started in 1998.  He will always be remembered as one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time.
