What a Super way to go out for Peyton Manning.Von Miller and the Broncos' swarming, big-play defense served up his second NFL championship.Should Sunday's 24-10 victory over the Carolina Panthers be his finale, Manning certainly can be satisfied and comfortable in retirement. He wasn't the star but Manning really hasn't been the headliner in this injury-shortened season. Game MVP went to Von Miller who seemingly was everywhere on every Carolina play.


While almost all of the pre-game attention for Super Bowl 50 focused on the two star-studded quarterbacks, it was the Denver Broncos defense that ended up ruling the day.

The Broncos came into the game ranked No. 1 in team defense in the NFL, and they showed why, surrendering just 10 points to the Carolina Panthers. The defense even helped the offense as the Broncos got their only touchdown of the first half from a forced fumble by linebacker Von Miller, who was named Super Bowl 50 MVP.

Denver's defense constantly put pressure on Cam Newton throughout the game, sacking the NFL's regular season MVP six times. Newton was still able to pick up some yardage, but the Panthers turned the ball over four times. The Broncos recovered three fumbles and added an interception.

The stalwart Broncos defense helped secure Peyton Manning's second Super Bowl win.
