When Super Bowl 50 happens on February 7th, the two teams playing against each other will be the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers. The Broncos beat the New England Patriots, 20-18, early Sunday, and then it was time for the Carolina Panthers to rout the Arizona Cardinals by a score of 49-15. Super Bowl 50 will be the Bronco’s 8th time, which ties a record, and will be the 2nd time for the Panthers.

The game is scheduled to be played in Levi’s Stadium, Santa Clara, California, starting at 3:30 PM PST and will air on CBS.

Broncos Hold Off Patriots

The NFL championship game is nothing new for Bronco’s quarterback Peyton Manning, 39, as it will be his 4th chance at winning an NFL championship.

It was with the help of two touchdown passes Manning made that the Denver Broncos are going again this year

Manning’s only NFL championship so far was when he played with the Indianapolis Colts at Super Bowl XLI versus the Chicago Bears on February 4, 2007. It’s speculated this could be Manning’s last season, especially since he will be 40 years old in March. Manning only threw 9 touchdowns and got 17 interceptions during the ten games in the regular season, and that’s not as good as when he got his Hall of Fame stats. Plus, he wasn’t able to play in six games this year due to a partly torn plantar fascia on his left heel, and he is the oldest quarterback to lead his team to the Super Bowl.

Panthers ruled over Arizona to get into Super Bowl 50

The game on Sunday between the Arizona Cardinals and the Carolina Panthers was the first time ever in the history of the NFL that two quarterbacks who had both won the Heisman Trophy played in a game against one another. These were Cam Newton from the Panthers, who got the Heisman Trophy in 2010 and Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer, who won a Heisman Trophy in 2002.

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is different from Manning in the fact that while Manning appears to be near the end of his Football career, Newton is just now coming into his prime as a quarterback. He is considered to be a part of the modern quarterbacks who can run as well as they can throw.

Denver is at 14-2 against Carolina’s 15-1.

Super Bowl 50 fans should be in for a great game come February 7th when they kick-off between these two powerhouse teams.
