Both AFC and NFC playoff games were played today and the stage for the 2016 Superbowl has been set. The Broncos took down the Patriots in what could have been the last meeting between Peyton and Tom and Cam and co. followed by demolishing the Cardinals. The Broncos’ defense was outstanding with LB Von Miller (2.5 sacks, five tackles, two tackles for loss, four QB hits, one INT) and CB Aqib Talib (tipped the football on the Pat’s two-point conversion attempt) shining under the bright lights of Mile High Stadium. QB Peyton Manning completed 17 of 32 attempted passes for 176 yards and two TDs after a season filled with injuries. Cam Newton led the Panthers to one of the largest wins in playoff history with a final score of 49-15. The blowout game followed countless Panther TDs and (Arizona QB) Carson Palmer INTs. In two weeks, two of the strongest teams will meet for the 50th Superbowl with a possible win for either the legend or the unlikely hero.
