La defensiva de los Broncos está ganando el campeonato porque solo requerían que Peyton Manning no tomará decisiones incorrectas o las minimizará. Sin duda el Jugador Más Valioso Von Miller ... Y el coordinador defensivo Wade Phillips #SBxESPN

Broncos tack on 2-point conversion

Peyton Manning connected with Bennie Fowler in the end zone, extending Denver's lead to 24-10 with just over 3 minutes left in the fourth quarter.

Panthers win probability plummeting

After a Denver TD and two-point conversion, Carolina's win probability has dropped to 1.7% with 3:08 left in the fourth quarter. Live in-game updates

John Elway may be able to say "This one's for Peyton."

C.J. Anderson finds the end zone

After a pass interference penalty gave the Broncos the ball on the 1, C.J. Anderson powered it in for Denver's first offensive TD of the game. The Broncos lead 22-10 pending a review and the two-point conversion attempt. Follow live

Broncos with another takeaway

Von Miller forced his second fumble of the game, and T.J. Ward -- who had an interception earlier in the game -- picked it up and gave the Broncos the ball inside Carolina's 10-yard line with less than 5 minutes to play. Follow live

The Broncos way back in Week 1 led Baltimore by six points (19-13) late in regulation. Darian Stewart picked off Joe Flacco on third-and-16 to seal the outcome. How much more can the Broncos ask from their defense?

Nick Wagoner @nwagoner

Unless Panthers score and tie or take lead, entirely possible Peyton has thrown his last NFL pass, no?

Peyton Manning sacked five times

This is the second time the Broncos QB has been sacked five times in a postseason game. Only two QBs have won Super Bowls after being sacked five times: Roger Staubach (Super Bowl XII) and Brett Favre (Super Bowl XXXI).

Marshawn Lynch leaves us waiting

Adam Schefter reported earlier today that Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch had told people close to him he plans to retire. Then, during the Super Bowl, Lynch posted this tweet on his verified Twitter account.

Graham Gano's 39-yard FG cuts Denver lead to 16-10. That puts the combined FGs over 3.5 (Brandon McManus has 3). Gano's kick is the longest so far but still under 45.5 for longest field goal. Shortest FG so far was 30-harder for McManus, which would be over 26.5 for shortest field goal.

Dave Tuley ESPN Staff Writer 

Defenses continue to dominate. Both teams have gone over 2.5 sacks (and over 5 combined sacks). Props on whether Peyton Manning and Cam Newton would throw INTs both cashed (and over 1.5 combined INTs). Ten punts is sitting on combined over/under 10 right now.

Panthers settle for FG, cut lead to 6

A Peyton Manning-led team has won only 5 games in his career w/o offensive TD, including playoffs. It's happened twice this year. #SB50

Philly Brown is out for the game with a concussion. Look for rookie Devin Funchess to get more snaps.
