On Feb. 7, the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers will go head-to-head for a chance to achieve the next Super Bowl title. This season was a special one for the Carolina Panthers, who finished 15-1 in the regular season, while the Broncos finished 12-4. Both finished with the best record and the No. 1 seed heading into the playoffs.
If the Panthers win on Feb. 7, then it will be their first Super Bowl victory. The Broncos will have their third win in NFL history if they come out on top.
Whoever wins this game will make history and, with all the stories buzzing around Media Week, this looks to be an intense, aggressive and close showdown for a historical Super Bowl. Everyone should be excited for this legendary evening that you don’t want to miss.
It’s every NFL player’s dream to play in the Super Bowl from the moment one enters the NFL and most of the members of the Carolina Panthers have never reached the big stage.
However, the Broncos have some players who have played and even won the Super Bowl before, such as quarterback Peyton Manning, who is appearing in his fourth Super Bowl. This can potentially be the final game of his football career and he is going to put everything he has into this game to end his legendary career on a heroic note.
For quarterback Cam Newton, this is his first Super Bowl appearance, adding a new moment to his incredible list of accomplishments so far. Some believe the pressure will get to him in his first Super Bowl, but many forget Newton has played in front of thousands for a national championship in college, which was also the same year he won the Heisman trophy.
For both quarterbacks, this Super Bowl win can potentially impact their legacy.
Both teams have been preparing for this game for a while now, hoping for their team to enter the final game of the 2015-16 NFL season. The Panthers have been an explosive team on the offensive end, with MVP-nominee Newton leading the way with his dual-threat ability. Running back Jonathan Stewart, tight end Greg Olsen and wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. are the key offensive players for the Carolina Panthers. The defensive main players seem to be linebacker Luke Kuechly and cornerback Josh Norman.
For the Broncos, their offensive players seems to be Manning, wide receivers Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas and running back C.J. Anderson. The big defensive players are going to be safety T.J. Ward, cornerback Aqib Talib, defensive end Derek Wolfe and outside linebackers DeMarcus Ware and Von Miller.
Super Bowl 50 is already looking to be a memorable and historical event that all should watch. Coldplay, Lady Gaga, commercials and a Lombardi trophy will be presented in this important game.
