Super Bowl 50 matches each conference’s top seed for the third consecutive year as the Broncos represent the AFC in going up against the NFC champion Panthers on February 7 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California. This will be Denver’s eighth Super Bowl appearance (2-5) while Carolina is playing in its second title game (0-1).
Super Bowl 50 will be the 50th Super Bowl, the National Football League championship game. The National Football Conference (NFC) champion Carolina Panthers will play the American Football Conference (AFC) champion Denver Broncos to decide the league champion for the 2015 NFL season.
Peyton Manning isn’t done just yet. Now, the 39-year-old quarterback has another chance to win an NFL championship.With Manning’s two touchdown passes to tight end Owen Daniels and a late escape by the Denver Broncos defense, the Broncos defeated the New England Patriots 20-18 in the AFC Championship Game Sunday at Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver, advancing to Super Bowl 50.
Sunday’s Cardinals-Panthers game marked the first time in NFL playoff history that two Heisman Trophy-winning quarterbacks started against each other. Panthers QB Cam Newton won the Heisman in 2010; Cardinals’ starter Carson Palmer won in 2002.
Palmer was pressured into three first-half turnovers, fumbling twice and also failing to capitalize on the Newton interception, throwing a pick of his own in the end zone just one play later. He also threw two interceptions in the fourth quarter, including pick-six, but the game already was well out of reach by then.
The stadium has had repeated problems with the grass surface, including the grass collapsing under Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker during a week 6 game in 2015. This has led to concern that the stadium might not be of a high enough caliber to host a high stakes game such as Super Bowl 50
