9:21 pm
lots of sunshine and temperatures well above normal. so a dry pattern for the next seven days. >> i know. spring fever too. >> totally. >> well, on paper, the carolina panthers should have dominated that game. but they don't play on paper. >> that's right. and kristen was right. >> should have bet money on it. could have been. >> we thought carolina had it. well, there is a d in denver. just ask carolina and quarterback cam newton. today at super bowl 50, the highest-scoring team in the league was held to just 10 points. let's go out to levi's stadium where warriors guard and panthers fan steph curry was pounding the carolina drum. the story is 39-year-old peyton manning playing in perhaps his final game. but it was the broncos defense that stole the show. von mill strips the ball from newton. denver an early 10-0 lead. carolina has a pretty good defense of its own. luke keuchly takes down manning on third down, forcing a punt. the panthers cut the lead to three in the second quarter. jonathan stewart flying over the power.
9:22 pm
that capped a 73 yard drive. later in the quarter, the panthers think jordan norwood calls for a fair catch. he didn't. norwood gets all the way down to the 14 yard line that 61 yard punt return is the longest in super bowl history. it would lead to a field goal. the panthers offense had problems all afternoon, turning the ball over four times. mike tolbert tossed it up here. cj anderson had himself a solid game. he breaks loose and gets all the way down to the carolina 26. anderson finished with 90 yards on 23 carries. but manning made his share of mistakes. this pass is going to be picked off by kony ealy. so at the half, denver only led 13-7. the panthers got the second half off to a promising start. newton finds former 49er ted ginn jr. it's a 45 yard completion. the drive, though would peter out. graham gano tries to kick a field goal, but the ball goes off the upright. no good. meanwhile, denver's brandon mcmanus was a perfect 3 for 3.
9:23 pm
this 30 yarder made it 16-7 midway in the third quarter. the panthers try to answer. newton goes deep for cory brown who makes a great catch between two defenders. that's good for 42 yards. but carolina once again comes away empty as newton is picked off by former de la salle star tj ward. he gets up and fumbles the football but the broncos did recover. you have to give credit to denver defensive coordinator wade phillips who kept the league mvp under control. newton was sacked six times today. still, carolina stayed in the contest. ealy led to a ganoe field goal. the lead down to 16-10. but panthers would get no closer. on third and long, miller knocks the ball out of newton's hands. he fails to go after it and tj ward comes up with the second turnover of the contest that set up this touchdown run by anderson, who bulls his way in from the 4. a two-point conversion made it 24-10.
9:24 pm
that would be the final. so manning like john elway can ride off into retirement after winning the super bowl. von miller was named the game's mvp. the broncos beat the panthers and claim their third vince lombardi trophy. >> we know what type a game we can play. and we just focus around that. enjoy the moment. i enjoyed being with all the guys, spending hours and hours with those guys every day this week. we didn't really pay attention to all that stuff. we just played our game. >> when you get here, there are no guarantees either. we beat a really good football game tonight. lost one game coming into the season. everybody did their part. and i'm honored and grateful to be a part of it. >> team out here played better than we did today. that's why they won the football team. they did some really good things against us. we didn't capitalize on the opportunities we had. and because of, that they won the football game. so this is the same team that a couple of years ago got beat in new york. so we have an opportunity to grow and learn from this experience. and we need to learn from this experience to give ourselves an opportunity to get back here. >> so denver pulls off the upset, beating carolina, 24-10.
9:25 pm
next year, the super bowl will be played in my hometown, houston, texas. and tonight at 11:00, larry and shu live from levi's stadium. stick around for that. >> thanks, rick. next on abc 7 news at 9:00, a kung fu fight at the box office. office. >> new movies trying to take ♪(rock music) the steakhouse thickburger. onion strings, blue cheese and a1 sauce on a burger. at carl's jr.
