Super Bowl L weekend is here. OK, no one is calling it that, because that looks weird. It's actually Super Bowl 50. In any case, the biggest sporting event in the entire world is upon us. The Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers will face off in the battle between the No. 1 seed from the AFC and NFC, respectively. One of the best quarterbacks in NFL history, Peyton Manning, is clearly at the end of his career. He'll be going up against a tough Carolina defense. Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, who is the deserving MVP of the 2015 season, will have to find a way to beat Denver's top ranked defense. This has the makings of a good game, but it could also get ugly. The last time the Broncos played in the Super Bowl they were blown out 43-8.

The hope is that Super Bowl 50 will be just as competitive as last year's contest between the Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots. The Seahawks had a chance to win the game late by Malcolm Butler picked off Russell Wilson to secure a Patriots win, 28-24.

Denver is looking to win their first Super Bowl since John Elway guided the team to a win in 1999. Carolina has never won a Super Bowl before and they've only appeared in one.

This is it, folks. The final game of the season. After this one, all 32 teams will be 0-0 again and there won't be meaningful football until early September. Enjoy it while it lasts.

Here is all the information you need to know for Sunday's Super Bowl.

Who Will Win The Big Game?

The odds-makers significantly favor the Carolina Panthers to win the big game. Bovada lists the Panthers as six point favorites. Cam Newton is the favorite to win the Super Bowl MVP award. Poll results are leaning in Carolina's favor as well.

Who Are Eagles Fans Rooting For?

Eagles fans are relatively split when it comes to their rooting interest in this game. The Broncos have a slight lead. One might surmise that's because the Broncos are from a different conference so they're harder to hate. Some might just want to see Peyton Manning go out on top. Or maybe Eagles fans just appreciate that nasty Denver defense. The Panthers aren't a natural enemy for the Eagles (except in the wilderness) but maybe Eagles fans are still bitter about how Carolina injured Donovan McNabb and beat Philadelphia in the 2004 NFC Championship Game.
