Denver Broncos vs Carolina Panthers – Super Bowl 50

Broncos-PatriotsSuper Bowl 50 – Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers square off in Santa Clara, California

The Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers will square off in Super Bowl 50. The Panthers have a top ranked scoring offense and the Broncos have the No. 1 defense in passing and total yards. Both teams have enjoyed their success due to great defenses. The Panthers are the early 4.5 point favorite. The Super Bowl between the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers will be played on Sunday, February 7, 2016, at 6:30 p.m. ET at Levi’s Stadium. The game will be broadcast on CBS.

The Denver Broncos defense demonstrated a great pass rush against New England during the AFC championship game last Sunday. Tom Brady was rushed, hit and sacked throughout the game. Denver forced four sacks and three interceptions.  Denver’s defense had great success against Brady, but the Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has an elusiveness that Brady does not have. Denver quarterback Peyton Manning and the offense have not consistent this season. The Denver offense looked much better against New England but  they will have to face a different caliber of defense against Carolina.

The Carolina Panthers rolled over Arizona in the NFC championship game with an impressive defensive showing as well. The defense forced the Cardinals to turn it over four times in the first half. The key matchup will be the Carolina offensive line against the Denver defensive front. The strength of the Carolina line has been a pleasant surprise led by center Ryan Kalil. Also, Cam Newton has the ability to run with the ball when the defense poses a threat in the pocket. The Panther’s tackles might be over matched by Denver’s outside rushers in Miller and DeMarcus Ware. Offensive tackles Mike Remmers and Michael Oher have held up well, but this will be a tough task. The team that wins the turnover battle usually wins the final game of the season. No team had more takeaways in the regular season than the Panthers. Super Bowl 50 might come down to which offensive line can play the best.

Arizona Cardinals at Carolina Panthers – NFC Championship Game

The Carolina Panthers held on to beat the Seattle Seahawks 31-24 on Sunday with their 12th straight home win. Now they’ll host the NFC championship game for the first time in franchise history. The Arizona Cardinals beat the Green Bay Packers 26-20 in a wild overtime game on Saturday night to advance. The Panthers and Cardinals have not played this season but this game has a potential to be high scoring. The Panthers averaged more than 31 points this season and the Cardinals were a close second at 30.5. These two teams couldn’t be much closer to one another and home field advantage is the only thing separating them. The NFC Championship Game  between the Arizona Cardinals and Carolina Panthers is scheduled for Sunday, January 24, 2016, at 6:40 p.m. ET at Bank of America Stadium. The matchup will be broadcast on FOX.

The Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer threw for 349 yards and three TDs with two picks during their win against the Packers. Palmer had issues hitting his receivers and one of his touchdowns was of a fluke pass that was intended for a different receiver and landed in the hands of Michael Floyd. The other touchdown was a big catch and run by Larry Fitzgerald. The Arizona receivers Floyd, Fitzgerald and John Brown are all very good, and are sure to have a big impact in this game also. For the second game in a row, the Cardinals had trouble running the ball, gaining just 40 yards on 19 attempts.

The Carolina Panthers defense wore down last week after going up 31-0 over Seattle, and had to recover an onside kick to pull out a 31-24 victory. Carolina has a very talented defense however they don’t have a particularly deep unit. Arizona could take advantage of this if they can stay on the field for a majority of the time. The Panthers are going to rely on quarterback Cam Newton during this NFC championship game. Against Seattle, Newton completed 16 of 22 passes for 161 yards and a touchdown. The Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart was able to run over 100 yards on the ground against Seattle, who has the league’s best rush defense.
