Panthers, Broncos To Play In Super Bowl 50 On Feb. 7 At Levi’s Stadium

Super Bowl 50 now has its contestants.

The NFC champion Carolina Panthers will face the AFC champion Denver Broncos on football’s biggest stage after defeating the Arizona Cardinals and New England Patriots, respectively, in their conference championship games Sunday.

Carolina dismantled the Cardinals in every phase of the game, and the Broncos took down New England in a close finish.

In the NFC Championship Game, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton threw for 335 yards and two touchdowns with one interception and also rushed for 47 yards and two more scores. He set an NFL record as the first player to pass for 300 yards and rush for two scores in the same postseason game.

In the AFC, the Broncos’ defense outlasted New England quarterback Tom Brady, who despite being hit a season-high 20 times managed to pull within a two-point conversion of tying the game and sending it to overtime before Denver cornerback Aqib Talib broke up the final pass to Julian Edelman.

Super Bowl 50 will take place Sunday, Feb. 7, at Levi’s Stadium, home of the San Francisco 49ers, in Santa Clara, Calif.
