The big game is all set! After two incredible conference championship games between four of football’s best teams, the two squads playing in Super Bowl 50 have officially been decided. See who made it here!
It has been one heck of a season for the National Football League, and it has all come down to this. The only thing missing from Super Bowl 50 was the two teams who would be battling it out for the title of Super Bowl champions on Feb. 7, but the wait is over. So, who will be facing each other in the big game?
The first to determine their fate on Jan. 24 was the Broncos, who played the New England Patriots in Denver in the AFC Championship Game. After leading the entire game, the Broncos had a minor threat from the Pats as they came within two points with just 12 seconds to go, but Peyton Manning‘s team managed to pull out the victory. Then, the Panthers took on the Arizona Cardinals at home in North Carolina, defeating them with a score of 49-15 in the NFC Championship. Thanks to an epic performance by Cam Newton and the entire Panthers squad, it was hardly ever a question that they were headed for the Super Bowl!
Considering the seasons these two teams have had this year, Super Bowl 50 is sure to be quite the match up. Peyton led his team to another AFC West championship — his fourth in a row with the Broncos — and a phenomenal season with a 12-4 record. But perhaps the award for most incredible season goes to Cam, who spearheaded the Panthers to an almost-perfect 15-1 record. Clearly both of these teams deserved their Super Bowl bids!
Even if the Panthers and Broncos weren’t who you were hoping would be part of 2016’s biggest football game, the halftime show is definitely something you won’t want to miss. Not only is British rock group Coldplay this year’s headliner for the huge musical event, but Beyonce will be joining them to make the performance even more epic!
Between an insane halftime show and two incredibly talented teams, Super Bowl 50 will be one amazing night. Congratulations to the Broncos and Panthers for making it all the way!
