Broncos win Super Bowl 50 on 49ers’ home turf

Feb 7, 2016 at 7:23 PM--


While the Denver Broncos offense was ineffective for most of the game, their defense was phenomenal. The Broncos jumped to and early 10-0 lead and never trailed in the game as Denver won Super Bowl 50 over the Carolina Panthers by the score of 24-10 on Sunday.

The Broncos offense would not score until nearly three minutes remaining in the game. Linebacker Von Miller won the MVP award.

The Super Bowl was held on the home field of the San Francisco 49ers. Located in Santa Clara, California, the stadium officially opened in July of 2014.

Carolina had more passing yards, rushing yards, and total yards in the game, but they also had four turnovers compared to Denver's two.

The game was likely the last for quarterback Peyton Manning, who will ride off into the sunset winning his second championship in four Super Bowl visits. He was only 13 of 23 for 141 yards and an interception.

Former 49ers tight end Vernon Davis, who was traded to Denver during the regular season, is a Super Bowl champion and did it at his former home field.

Carolina was favored by 4.5 points.

There are times when a winning team running an unnecessary play with the game in hand would be something that falls under the category of poor sportsmanship, but it turns out the Seattle Seahawks had a good reason to do so against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. The Seahawks had the lead and the ball with 22 seconds to play in their 26-23 win over the 49ers, which is a situation where teams would usually kneel on the ball to run out the clock. But they decided instead to run a short five-yard pass play to wide receiver David Moore, which left some observers confused. After the game, it was revealed the Seahawks ran the play for Moore so he could get a performance bonus of $100,000. Moore's contract stipulates that he gets the bonus for 35 receptions on the
