Peyton Manning attacked Panthers cornerback Robert McClain for a couple of big plays that set up the field goal. But Manning and Broncos continues to struggle on third down. They are 1-for-9. Panthers aren't much better at 3-for-10.

Almost halfway through third quarter and Demaryius Thomas still has just one catch for 8 yards.

Broncos fans rejoice...teams leading by at least six points at halftime are 30-3 in Super Bowl history. The last team to overcome such a deficit? The Cowboys in 1994, who trailed the Bills, 13-6, at intermission but won, 30-13.

"You gotta make those. That field goal miss is a momentum killer. That's a lost possession for Carolina." - Herm Edwards on #SB50

Graham Gano is no good on field goal

The Panthers kicker had been a perfect 3-for-3 on field goals this postseason, but kicked his 44-yard attempt off the right upright, leaving the Panthers trailing the Broncos 13-7 early in the third quarter of Super Bowl 50. Follow live

In six quarters of Super Bowl play, Carolina has led for all of 4:02 of game clock. That stretch came in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl XXXVIII, in which they briefly led New England, 22-21, only to lose 32-29.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Cam Newton stood tall in the pocket to throw that rocket to Ted Ginn Jr. The kind of play those two have made all season.

Rich Cimini @RichCimini

In his last 8 quarters, Demaryius Thomas has just 4 receptions for 24 yards. He has 2 drops during that span (both today). #SB50
