Super Bowl 50

Not one conversation or article that I read last week suggested the fiftieth NFL Championship game would end 24-10 in an almost lackluster contest.  The stage setting was maybe too perfect, the young qb with new ideas and strategies, for less sophisticated viewers, the black quarterback vs the white; perfect. 

The accoutrements of the game were perfect while raggedy plays and shaky passes happened on the field of play. 

The star quarterback on the winning side was Peyton Manning, Archie’s boy.  He completed 13 of 23 in the air for 141 yards, an interception, a fumble and no touchdowns.  In total the Denver offense earned 194 total yards the lowest in Super Bowl history – 50 yards lower than the previous record. 

Now, the Carolina’s team had one of the best seasons in history only losing a single game but this is a single elimination sport.   Cam Newton the young buck expected to blow out the old man who completed 18 of 41 passes, an interception, two fumbles, not pretty.  All told the Super Bowl recorded 12 total sacks another record. 

This was likely Peyton Manning’s final professional contest he is 39-years-old and during a post-game interview he said, “This game was like this season in that it tested our toughness.”

It was the Broncos third Super Bowl win since 1999, and Peyton Manning’s Second gold ring. 

All is not lost you will see Cam Newton again and for a long time to come.
