The Denver Broncos are Super Bowl 50 champions. They beat the Carolina Panthers by a final score of 24 to 10. It's the Broncos' first Lombardi trophy win since 1999 and the third in Denver franchise history. Von Miller rightfully won Super Bowl MVP.
The game was not very pretty. There were a lot of turnovers and mistakes. The Panthers entered this game as the better team on paper but they did not play up to their nearly undefeated status. They choked when it counted the most and the Broncos managed to take advantage.
One would think has to be Peyton Manning's last game. He's going to turn 40 soon and there's no better way to go out than on top like this. The Broncos have a lot of players scheduled to hit free agency this offseason so changes are coming.
The Panthers didn't win tonight but they still have a bright future. Newton was the regular season MVP and he's going to be a problem for teams to deal with for years to come.
Congratulations to the three former Eagles players who are now Super Bowl champions: Evan Mathis, Jordan Norwood, and Ryan Harris. It's especially cool to see Mathis get a ring.
Now that the Super Bowl is over, the offseason officially starts for all 32 teams. Everyone is undefeated again! Next up is free agency, then the draft, then OTAs and training camp until finally it all starts again this fall.
