Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers are Off to Super Bowl 50
Super Bowl 50 in Santa Clara this year will feature the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers.
Both teams were able to move on from Championship Sunday with wins over two really good teams in the Patriots and Cardinals.
In the AFC Championship game it was a game dominated by the Denver defense in which they attacked Tom Brady more than many of us have ever seen.
Peyton Manning continued to look like a shell of the once prolific passer we all knew, but the experience and intelligence of the future first ballot hall of famer came into play as he made smart decisions and didn't turn the football over.
The Broncos make it two the Super Bowl for the second time in three years as they lost to the Seattle Seahawks two years ago at Metlife Stadium.
The NFC Championship game featured the high powered offense of the Panthers that really just kept churning along all game long.
Cam Newton's MVP season was cemented with the great individual performance that helped lead his team to their second Super Bowl appearance in franchise history.
The Carolina defense also showed up big as they forced seven turnovers from the Cardinals and essentially left the often exciting Arizona offense be reduced to a lack luster product on Sunday.
Super Bowl 50 will be on CBS on February 7th.
