Super Bowl Sunday is finally here. Sunday, February 7, 2016. The AFC champions, the Denver Broncos, the league’s No. 1 defense, winner of 12 games and 4 losses, a year in which 39-year-old Peyton Manning, the legendary quarterback, is likely to retire after a career of historical achievements over the past eighteen years. Manning was drafted to the National Football League in 1998, for the Indianapolis Colts, and took the team to the Super Bowl in 2006, winning it all against the Chicago Bears. Manning appeared in two other Super Bowls, in 2009 (lost against the Saints), in 2013 (his Broncos was destroyed against the Seattle Seahawks’ defense.) Manning faces a tough, athletic team in the Carolina Panthers, lead by tough talking quarterback Cam Newton, one of the polarizing quarterbacks in the N.F.L. today.
The NFC champions, the Carolina Panthers, the league’s No. 1 offense, who defeated the Arizona Cardinals, to get to the Super Bowl, is a team that is on a mission. Most observers say that if the 15-1 Panthers, (the only team they lost to was the Atlanta Falcons), win tonight’s Super Bowl, that they will go down as one of the greatest teams in football history.
Newton and Manning have great players behind them tonight, for the Denver Broncos, the key will be the offense for the Broncos, such as wide receivers Emmanuel Sanders and Demariyus Thomas. For the Panthers, they have a formidable offense in Ted Ginn, Jr., Jonathan Stewart, and defensive energy in Thomas Davis, the linebacker.
I see at the end of the day, the Carolina Panthers being the world champions of Football, winning 24-20. Newton will be the rising star of the N.F.L. and will also be the Super Bowl MVP.
