Denver Broncos Win Super Bowl Behind Incredible Defense, Peyton Manning Ends Grueling Season on Top

If this is Peyton Manning’s final game, he’ll ride off into the sunset on top.

The Denver Broncos won Super Bowl 50 by a score of 24-10 on Sunday behind their incredible defense, especially the pass rush from linebackers Von Miller (who made two big plays and earned the MVP) and DeMarcus Ware. Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers offense looked stunned, unable to create much of anything under constant pressure.

But the real story is about Peyton Manning, who didn’t do much on Sunday (141 Yds, 0 TD, 1 INT), but (in all likelihood) capped off his Hall of Fame career on top of the world, just as John Elway did during the last Broncos Super Bowl victory in 1999.

The Mile High City is higher than ever, and for once, that’s not a marijuana reference.

Congrats to the Broncos on a remarkable year, dethroning the defending Super Bowl champs and knocking off the league MVP and his red-hot offense on the big stage.

(Also, now Peyton has as many Super Bowls as his brother, which was bullsh*t previously.)
