SANTA CLARA, CA — Here’s everything you need to know to impress your friends at a Super Bowl game party!
The Denver Broncos are appearing in their eighth total Super Bowl, moving them into a tie with the Cowboys, Patriots and Steelers for most all-time!
They haven’t all been happy memories, though: five have been blowout losses!
Their QB, Peyton Manning, is also out for a little historic symmetry in what will probably be his last game. Former Denver quarterback, John Elway’s last game was a Super Bowl win over the Falcons.
A win would also place Peyton as the only QB to ever win Super Bowls with two different teams.
Meanwhile, on the Panthers side, it’s just their second Super Bowl appearance. They narrowly lost the first to the Patriots back in SB XXXVIII.
They’re one of 13 NFL teams to never win the big one, and they have a chance to escape that club tomorrow.
As for Cam Newton, he can become only the second player in history to win the Heisman, college national title, NFL MVP and Super Bowl. The other was Marcus Allen!
So there you go, now you’re the smartest one at your Super Bowl party! You can thank us later!
