SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP)- Thanks to Super Bowl MVP Von Miller and the Orange Rush, Peyton Manning can go out on top.
Miller had 2 1/2 sacks, forced Cam Newton to fumble twice and the Broncos beat the Panthers 24-10 to win the franchise’s third Super Bowl title Sunday night.
Newton, the NFL MVP, was harassed by Denver’s smothering, top-ranked defense all game. He was visibly frustrated after throwing an interception and slammed his hand on the turf when a referee didn’t call a late hit in the fourth.
Manning was 13 of 23 for 141 yards and one interception. The victory was his 200th career win, second Super Bowl championship and he became the first QB to win an NFL title with two teams.
