The Denver Broncos defeated the Carolina Panthers 24-10 in Super Bowl 50. Super Bowl 50 Most Valuable Player Von Miller spoke after the game.
It's the top-ranked Denver Broncos defense that can claim credit for the victory after holding the NFL's highest-scoring offense to a single TD and a meager 10 points. Denver's defense was led by Von Miller who forced Panthers quarterback Cam Newton into two fumbles that were both converted into touchdowns.
Trailing 3-0 in the opening quarter, Carolina quickly found themselves in an even deeper hole when Von Miller barreled into Cam Newton and stripped the ball from his hands; defensive end Malik Jackson fell on the ball in the end zone for the game's first touchdown. Miller then ended any hope of a Carolina comeback when he knocked the ball out of Newton's hand on the Panthers four-yard line where the Denver offense took over; C.J. Anderson powered his way into the end zone from the two for 24-10 lead.
Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller was voted Super Bowl 50's Most Valuable Player. This marks the tenth time in Super Bowl history that a defensive player has been named Most Valuable Player. Linebacker Malcolm Smith of the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII was the last defensive player to receive the honor.
The award is chosen by a panel of 16, comprised of members of the Pro Football Writers Association of America, selected members of the broadcast media and by fans interactively through the National Football League's official website, NFL.com.
Miller led a Broncos defense that recorded seven sacks, posting six tackles, two and half sacks, two forced fumbles, one pass defensed and two quarterback hits.
Miller, a fifth-year player from Texas A&M, helped force two turnovers that were instrumental in setting up both Denver touchdowns. His first-quarter sack forced a fumble that was recovered by defensive end MALIK JACKSON in the end zone for a touchdown to the give the Broncos a 10-0 lead. Miller's second full sack of the game came in the fourth quarter and forced another fumble that was recovered at the Carolina nine-yard line by safety T.J. WARD. Four plays later, Broncos running back C.J. ANDERSON ran for a two-yard score to seal the Broncos 24-10 win.
