The Denver Broncos and Peyton Manning are heading back to the Super Bowl. Here are 5 reasons why they can win it.
The Denver Broncos can beat the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50. After Peyton Manning and company dismissed Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, and Cam Newton helped the Panthers take out the Arizona Cardinals, Super Bowl 50 awaits both quarterbacks. Experience and history will factor in and help the Broncos beat the odds, though. Underdog status doesn’t hurt either.
When you think of this game, you think of two quarterbacks and two head coaches. Manning, the aging yet high speed, computer-sharpened mind going for that much-needed second ring. Then there’s Newton, the freight train sensation who refers to himself as a superhero on and off the field, gunning for elite status and his first ring.
The head coaches have their own unique stories as well. Gary Kubiak and Ron Rivera played in the Super Bowl, went there as assistant coaches and now lead two teams of their own into the promised land.
Does Kubiak’s offensive strategy combined with Wade Phillips’ defense overcome Rivera’s defensive-schemed mind? Does Manning’s experience give him an edge over the young Newton?
These are the questions that are being asked by a lot of people in the lead up to Super Bowl 50.
Right now, few maybe expect the Broncos to pull off the win over the Panthers, who were virtually unstoppable throughout the entire season. But, Manning and the Broncos shouldn’t be laid to rest that quickly, and here’s why.
