Denver is the Super Bowl Champion.

BRONCOS 24, PANTHERS 10 (Final): The Panthers imploded on the biggest stage of all with four turnovers, 11 penalties and multiple dropped passes. League MVP Cam Newton didn't have enough time to do what he has done all season, and as a result the Panthers didn't get to dance one more time.

Peyton Mmanning tuvo una noche muy difícil pero su defensa le dio otro campeonato de la NFL. A partir de este momento la cuestión es su probable retiro o no. Y para los Broncos es igual. Si Manning decide quedarse, el equipo tiene que meditar si quiere pagarle porque Vin Miller será agente libre. Y el tope salarial es real en la NFL #SBxESPN

Von Miller's last two games: 5 sacks, 6 QB hits, two forced fumbles and an INT - against Cam Newton and Tom Brady.

All he does is win, win, win

Peyton Manning's victory in Super Bowl 50 gives him the most combined victories, regular and postseason, by a QB in NFL history.

Cool of Norman to salute Manning. Talked this week about always being Manning when he played Madden as a kid. #SB50

Dez Bryant @DezBryant

Peyton manning I just wanted to say it was an honor to watch you play from the sideline.. True legend well deserved #SB50

Denver's C.J. Anderson was +170 to score a touchdown. He also went over 58.5 rushing yards while it looks like Peyton Manning will stay well under 235.5 passing yards. Carolina's Cam Newton did go over 235.5 passing yards and over 41.5 rushing yards.

Mike Sando ESPN Senior Writer 

Barring a big surprise late, it looks like Peyton Manning will win two championships with huge assists from his defenses, which is typically how it goes for QBs. The 2006 Colts D with Bob Sanders in the lineup was very good in the playoffs. This Denver D is much better. How it's done.

Denver pulls ahead 24-10...the successful 2-point conversion cashed at +330 at Westgate SuperBook and is one of the more popular props bets. I'm watching in a Wynn ballroom and it seemed like more people cheered the 2-pt conversion than the touchdown.

Carlos Nava Columnist, ESPN Deportes 

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
