Super Bowl 50: Denver Defense Dominates

Von Miller and the impenetrable Denver defense harassed Panthers quarterback Cam Newton all game Sunday, and the Broncos made enough big plays for a 24-10 victory. The Broncos quarterback got his perfect finish, leading his team victory in Super Bowl 50, though it was a dominant defense that did the hard work. Manning wasn’t the focal point of the Broncos victory he still becomes the first quarterback to win Super Bowls with two franchises. Manning finished 13-for-23 for 141 yards against a strong Carolina (17-2) defense that just couldn’t match the Denver defense and Von Miller who captures MVP honors with six tackles, 2.5 sacks and two forced fumbles. Denver held Panthers quarterback Cam Newton in check all night long. Here are the top three reasons why the Denver Broncos won Super bowl 50.



  1. Broncos set tone with strip-sack score off Cam Newton

The newly crowned NFL MVP’s first encounter with the Broncos’ dominating defense wasn’t a successful one. Newton was drilled by linebacker Von Miller on a blind-side sack halfway through the first quarter, allowing defensive end Malik Jackson to scoop the fumble for a touchdown to give Denver an early 10-0 lead.

  1. Punt return record

The Broncos return man Jordan Norwood barely missed being the first player to ever return a punt for a touchdown in Super Bowl history. The return came halfway through the second quarter when Norwood fielded the kick at the Broncos’ 25-yard line and sprinted down the sideline before eventually being chased down.

  1. Broncos Defense

Denver’s suffocating defense kept Newton jittery all day. Miller twice stripped him, the first time for a touchdown and the second time to set up a clinching TD. Denver’s top-ranked defense, the one that ran roughshod over Tom Brady in the AFC championship, simply wouldn’t let Newton get comfortable all game long.

      That’s an interesting question in my opinion I think people still read newspapers because they’re still connected to the words on paper. Even with technology growing everyday there are still some people out there who would like to read words on paper or online article. This one of the main reasons why I still love reading!
