The Denver Broncos won the Super Bowl 50 held at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California with a defensive masterclass dominated over Carolina Panthers. Broncos ended the game with 24-10.
This is the third Super Bowl for the Broncos, while Panthers are still waiting on their one.
Carolina Panthers were favorites with Cam Newton as quarterback, but he was smothered by the Broncos defence. The Denver Broncos’ quarterback by veteran Peyton Manning made an early lead for Bronco’s with 10-0. After the game, 39-year-old Manning, said he would “take time to reflect,” and did not confirm the rumors he would retire.
“It’s been an emotional week and it’s an emotional night,” Manning said. Contrary to Manning, Newton missed opportunity for a good game, and he was not helped by Carolina’s receivers after two crucial drops by Jerricho Cotchery.
But, much of the Super Bowl is about music during the halftime. This year performers included Beyonce, Bruno Mars and Coldplay. It is also about the commercials played on television during the break of the football game.
Overall, as the Vox.com says, “Super Bowl Sunday, February 7, 2016, was a Beyoncé concert with a side of football and Coldplay. The singer released a surprise song, “Formation,” the day before the game, absolutely slayed her portion of the halftime show, and then announced a world tour.”
But, CBSNews focussed their attention to Manning and his play.
“If this was the final game of his magnificent career, what a Super way to go out for Peyton Manning. He can thank Von Miller and the Broncos’ swarming, big-play defense for his second NFL championship. Adding that ring to his five MVP awards, Manning certainly can be satisfied and comfortable in retirement should Sunday’s 24-10 victory over the Carolina Panthers be his finale. He wasn’t the star — game MVP Miller seemingly was everywhere on every Carolina play — but Manning really hasn’t been the headliner in this injury-shortened season.”
