Aqib Talib's lack of discipline (2 penalties) against Carolina sparking memories of his performance vs. Panthers w/ Patriots in '13.

Jonathan Stewart scores Panthers' TD

The running back left the game earlier with a foot injury, but returned and put Carolina on the board in the second quarter with a 1-yard TD run. It's his third rushing TD this postseason. Follow live

So... this means Talib would have been ejected under Goodell's proposed rule, right?

Denver leads Carolina 10-0 at the end of the first quarter. Denver was a 0.5-point 1st quarter underdog; it went over 7.5 points.

Denver DE Malik Jackson cashed for those taking the field at 4-1 for who would score the first TD at the Westgate SuperBook. He wears #96 so that cashed the over 22.5 for jersey number of player to score first TD. The "yes" on whether there would be a defensive or special teams TD also cashed.

Panthers' ground game absent in first

Carolina, which rushed for the second-most yards in the NFL this regular season, had a season-low 28 yards in the first quarter.


Broncos take 10-0 lead into 2nd qtr

Jonathan Stewart returns at the end of the first quarter. Foot not as bad as initially thought.

Heather Burns 

The team that scores first has won five straight Super Bowls.. The last team to score first and lose the Super Bowl was the Colts in Super Bowl XLIV. Peyton Manning led the Colts to a FG on their first drive and they lost to the Saints.

10-point Super Bowl comebacks are rare

In fact, it has only been done three times:

  • Super Bowl XLIX - Patriots
  • Super Bowl XLIV - Saints
  • Super Bowl XXII - Redskins



"It's time for Carolina to go with the zone read and let Cam run the ball because right now NOBODY can make a play." - Herm Edwards on #SB50

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers may have to do this without running back Jonathan Stewart. He is questionable to return with a foot injury.

Heather Burns 

Teams that score a defensive TD in the Super Bowl are 15-2.

Heather Burns 

The Panthers had allowed 32 points off turnovers all season. Including the playoffs, that is the lowest in the total in the NFL.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart is not on the field after limping off on the previous series. Twisted his leg on a tackle.

Was this a catch or not?

Jerricho Cotchery bobbled the ball and this potential big gain was called incomplete -- and the call stood up on replay. Two plays later, Cam Newton was sacked at his own 4-yard line, fumbled the ball, which the Broncos recovered in the end zone for a touchdown.


Heather Burns 

The Broncos are 5-0 this season when scoring a defensive touchdown.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Broncos force Cam Newton into rare mistake. Few can rip the ball away from Newton but Von Miller did. Denver recovers in the end zone for a 10-0 lead. Newton is going to have to play like the league MVP to overcome this start.
