Von Miller is simply dominating the Panthers offensive line. The Broncos linebacker sacked Cam Newton in the first quarter which resulted in a forced fumble that was recovered in the end zone for a touchdown.
And then he stuck again in the fourth quarter:
The Broncos would score a touchdown after the fumble to increase their lead to 22-10.
Two and a half sacks + two forced fumbles that resulted in touchdowns = Super Bowl MVP
After the Broncos extended their lead to 16-7 in the third quarter of Super Bowl 50, the Panthers immediately responded by driving the ball into Denver’s territory.
But they failed to put points on the board thanks to a dropped pass by Ted Ginn Jr.
Cam Newton fired a pass over the middle to Ginn, but the Panthers’ number one receiver watched the ball deflect off of his hands and land in the arms of Broncos safety T.J. Ward.
The play was far from over.
Good thing Danny Trevathan was there to grab the ball.
Kony Ealy isn’t the type of guy who you would expect to make a one-handed catch, but that’s exactly what the 6′ 4″ defensive end did in the second quarter of Super Bowl 50.
After a fantastic run by C.J. Anderson, the Broncos looked like they were going to increase their lead, but then this happened.
That was Peyton’s first interception in 164 postseason passes.
