The Denver Broncos defeated the Carolina Panthers 24-10 on Sunday night at Levi’s Stadium to win Super Bowl 50. The Broncos won behind a dominant defense that shut down the NFL’s No.1 scoring team, and Denver linebacker Von Miller was named the Super Bowl MVP.

It was one of the ugliest games in Super Bowl history, as the teams combined to turn the ball over six times. Denver took a 10-0 lead in the first quarter when Miller strip-sacked Cam Newton, and the Broncos recovered the ball in the end zone. Newton was under pressure for much of the game, being sacked six times. One night after being named the regular-season MVP, Newton committed three turnovers and completed just 18 of 41 passes for 265 yards.

Denver entered the game as the NFL’s top-ranked defense, and they were as good as advertised. Miller led the unit with 2.5 sacks and six tackles, and T.J. Ward had seven tackles and an interception.

"It's exciting to be the MVP," Miller said, "but as a defense, we knew we could get after the quarterback and cause havoc."

The Broncos offense, meanwhile, managed just 194 total yards and nine first downs.

Peyton Manning was less than spectacular as he won his second Super Bowl. The quarterback completed 13 of 23 passes for 141 yards and an interception. It was Manning’s second victory in four Super Bowl appearances, and there’s speculation that Sunday might have been his last game as an NFL player.

"This has been a very emotional week and night. I am going to drink a lot of beer tonight, a lot of Budweiser tonight. I want to thank the man upstairs. I am going to go away and kiss my wife. And take some time to think about [retirement]," Manning said after the game.

Manning becomes the first quarterback to win a Super Bowl with two different teams. Two years ago, Manning and the Broncos lost to the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl, 43-8.

It was a disappointing finish for Carolina after an impressive run to the title game. The Panthers, who were 5.5-point favorites for the Super Bowl, finished the regular season with a 15-1 record. In the NFC playoffs, Carolina held off the Seahawks, and thumped the Arizona Cardinals.
