Super Bowl Prediction

It all comes down to this: the Super Bowl! This Super Bowl will be the Denver Broncos vs Carolina Panthers at 6:30 pm in Santa Clara, CA. This matchup is between the top 2 teams in both conferences. The Panthers have been the Super Bowl favorite ever since the regular season began and they are many peoples pick to win on Sunday. QB Cam Newton is an MVP favorite this year and has had the best season in his young career. He has playmakers on offense with WR Ted Ginn Jr, RB Jonathan Stewart, and TE Greg Olsen at his disposal. The Panthers defense however have been the unsung heroes for their success. They have a ruthless front 7 along with a dominant secondary lead by LB Luke Kuechly and CB Josh Norman. The Panthers have had a very easy path to get to the Super Bowl and now their target is in sight. The Broncos have been the exact opposite. They have had to fight for each game in the playoffs and have dealt with adversity throughout the entire season. It has been because of their defense that they are in this position. They are the best defense in the NFL and will likely go after Cam Newton any chance they get and try to make him uncomfortable. Their offense is led by 39 year old QB Peyton Manning. He will be making his fourth Super Bowl appearance and will try to win his second title. He has been playing at a high level during practice this week according to multiple sources which is a good sign for the Broncos. For the Broncos to win this game, they will have to rely heavily on their run game with RB's Ronnie Hillman and CJ Anderson. They are both averaging over 4 yard per carry and can get hot very easily. I believe that this game is going to be a close game but the Carolina Panthers have too much talent on both sides of the ball that I have to pick them to win the Super Bowl
