Can you feel it? It’s THAT time of year again, super bowl time. This year’s super bowl will be the 50th time that the final is held and it will be played on the 7th of february at the Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California home of the San Fransisco 49ers. This fixture might seem like a coin flip and hard to predict but after reading our preview we are sure that you will agree with our prediction and the fact that there’s value to be had even in events such as the super bowl.
Old meets new as California Panthers and their up and coming 26 year old star quarterback Cam Newton takes on the Denver Broncos and their veteran quarterback 39 year old Peyton Manning. This quarterback fixture really sets up for an interesting story as Manning has a reputation of choking in high stakes playoff games and Cam Newton on the other hand has since his arrival to the Panthers not only won their first play off game in nine year (against the Arizona Cardinals 2014) but also broken several NFL records including two that were previously held be Peyton Manning (most yards thrown in their first NFL game and most yards thrown in a season).
Now this paints the picture for this game which will probably be Peyton Manning’s last game ever and it can only have two outcomes: Either win and quiet all the sceptics or lose to the younger and better Newton that broke his records.
Super bowl 50 special:
The american classic that is super bowl also features some of the biggest stars during the event and it will be no different this year as Lady Gaga will sing the national anthem and the halftime performance will be held by the beloved band Coldplay (feat Beyoncé!) and Bruno Mars.

The Denver Broncos will be coming into this fixture with 3 regulation time victories, 1 regulation time loss and 1 overtime victory in their 5 latest games. The Broncos defeated the San Diego Chargers with 27-20 in the divisional round and then managed to beat last years super bowl champions the New England Patriots in the AFC finals. The Patriots led by last years MVP and probably the most famous NFL player in history Tom Brady had a hard time with the Broncos renowned defence and Manning managed to force a Broncos victory by 2 points.
The Broncos coach Gary Kubiak had this to say about Manning’s performance: “He’s going to do what he has to do to win, he’s one of the greatest competitors ever in this league.”
The Carolina Panthers will be coming into this game with 4 regulation time victories and 1 regulation time defeat. The Panthers defeated last years runner ups Seattle Seahawks in the divisional round and the proceeded to win the NFC finals with a comfortable 49-15 over the Arizona Cardinals. Cam Newton had a really dominate performance in the game managing a total of 382 yards and building up his path to the super bowl MVP.

The Broncos and the Panthers last faced each other in 2012, a game that resulted in a one-sided 36-14 road victory for the Broncos.
The viking’s prediction for this game is based on several facts:
- The Broncos advanced to the finals mainly because of their impressive defence, an area which the Panthers are also strong in.
- Manning has a history of choking in big games, this game is loaded with pressure for the old quarterback as it will in some sense mark his career and it is versus a Newton that has managed to beat several of Manning’s rookie NFL records.
- Cam Newton is an astonishing quarterback able to rival even Tom Brady as seen in the conference finals where Newton managed 335 yards and 2 touchdowns versus the Cardinals in comparison with Tom Brady’s 310 yards and 1 touchdown versus the Broncos.
- Peyton Manning had a reported foot injury, though he has been able to participate in full at all the practices leading up to the super bowl.
- The Panthers have not been able to win a super bowl yet (in fact they’ve only had questionable play off appearances) and winning one would mark that team as legends in the team’s future history.
So as you might have guessed our prediction for this game is that the Panthers will go out victorious, they’re hungrier and the more motivated team. They’re able to rival the Bronco’s greatest strengths and shine in areas where the Broncos can not. In addition to this a good performance in this game will probably secure the MVP for the already hungry Cam Newton.
