At the end of Super Bowl 50, people realized that a strong defense can still win championships, and the Broncos offensive stats proved that. Peyton Manning, Quarterback for the Broncos, only completed 13 of his 23 passes for 141 yards and he also threw one interception. This game was all about defense, on average the Broncos only allowed 4.2 yards per play during the Super Bowl. Broncos linebacker Von miller was the Super Bowl MVP, getting 2.5 sacks, forced two fumbles and constantly was rushing Cam Newton.
A big highlight of the Super Bowl was the halftime show. Beyonce, Coldplay and Bruno Mars were the ones that performed during it. The halftime show seemed this year to be a lot shorter than the previous years and had some slip ups, Beyonce slipped up in her dance, but got lucky and pulled it off to make it seem like nothing happened.
The game started off pretty rough for the Panthers, beginning with the Broncos getting a field goal then causing Cam Newton to fumble the ball and the Broncos recovered it and got a defensive touchdown. The Panthers from there out had a rough game only scoring ten points and the Broncos winning by twenty-four.
