If you are a fan of American football, then you are probably sitting on the edge of your seat waiting for NFL’s Super Bowl 50.
As you count the days, here is an in-depth review of the much-awaited showdown.
Carolina Panthers vs. Denver Broncos
The Carolina Panthers will take on Colorado’s Denver Broncos in what could kickstart this year on an electrifying note.
The Broncos have 11 victories in their kitty so far. This makes them the team with the most wins in the Super Bowl period. They have a great arsenal in the form of Peyton Manning, the quarterback, and Brock Osweiler. Star players in the team include Pro-Bowl choices Chris Harris Jr. and Aqib Talib as well as Bradley Roby, the team’s cornerback.
The Carolina Panthers started their season rather damply when Kelvin Benjamin, their star receiver, suffered a knee injury. The Panthers’ defense team includes quarterback Cam Newton and Greg Olsen, the tight end. Ted Ginn Jr., who has 10 touchdowns under his belt, and Philly Brown add to the Panthers’ X factor.
Sportsbooks have termed the Broncos as the underdog for the game, but both teams have rock-hard defenses. The Panthers, however, have an edge with their excellent offense. This could keep you chewing on your nails through the game.
Here's a look at what could possibly go down during the game on Sunday.
The Broncos could beat the Panthers
Although the Panther’s quarterback Cam Newton is in line to become the league’s MVP, the Broncos have an impenetrable defense. The Broncos defeated five teams while the Panthers just knocked out three during the playoffs.
The Panthers could beat the Broncos
The Broncos’ season would have looked very different if they had not made those wins. They have not faced a quarterback like Cam Newton all this season, and his offense has scored the highest points per game. Their offense has not displayed enough strength to be able to tackle the Panthers’ defense. The Panthers have collected the right team to breathe down the Broncos’ neck and apply massive pressure on Peyton Manning. One stumble by Manning can give the Panthers the edge they need to cinch the gold at Super Bowl 50.
With a game as heavy as this, people are going to be betting from all directions. Here are some factors you will need to consider before you bet on the game.
The Broncos are a talented, young team. Their golden egg Cam Newton is one of the most powerful quarterbacks. These guys win big, strong, and do not budge not matter how bad their situation gets. With their super strong defense, chances of the Broncos riding for gold are high.
On the other hand, the Panthers are just as strong and talented. Their double-threat quarterback team and strapping defense can easily knock over the Broncos, who have not developed that strong a defense yet.
All of this boils down to the Super Bowl 50 on Sunday. Whether you are a Broncos fan or a Panthers supporter, study your factors before you place your bet. However, it is all in good spirit, so do not forget to have some money riding on your football heroes.
