Game Preview: Super Bowl 50 features the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers battling to hoist the Lombardi Trophy. The game is defined by the quarterbacks and defenses.
Cam Newton and Peyton Manning will be the players to watch as they each lead their offenses in different ways. Newton is more of a dynamic playmaker that is entering the prime of career. Manning is a traditional pocket passer who may be playing in his final game.
While the quarterbacks may steal the spotlight, it has been the defenses of both teams that have been a big part of their success. Linebacker Luke Kuechly and cornerback Josh Norman headline the Panthers defense. For the Broncos, linebacker Von Miller and defensive end DeMarcus Ware are two of the best players anchoring the Denver unit and do a great job of getting to the quarterback.
The defenses could make for a low scoring Super Bowl that would lead to an exciting fourth quarter. According to OddsShark, Carolina is favored by 5.5 points.
