A Peyton Manning-led team has won only 5 games in his career w/o offensive TD, including playoffs. It's happened twice this year. #SB50

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Philly Brown is out for the game with a concussion. Look for rookie Devin Funchess to get more snaps.

"Kony Ealy has been DOMINANT in this game. 3 sacks and an interception. He's Carolina's MVP tonight." - Herm Edwards on #SB50

Ealy forces fumble, gives Panthers ball

No team has won a Super Bowl without scoring an offensive touchdown. Teams to win with one offensive TD: - Patriots in Super Bowl XXXVI over Rams - Jets in Super Bowl III over Colts

Broncos looking to hold on to lead

Only one team in Super Bowl history has blown a lead of at least 9 points entering the fourth quarter: the Seahawks last season, who led by 10 before losing to the Patriots.

The Panthers do a great job limiting Cam Newton's pure pass drop-backs, but that is much harder to do when trailing by nine points in a fourth quarter. Look what happened to Tom Brady when New England went heavy with five-man protections and pure drop-backs. Brady got smashed. These third-and-longs for Carolina are rough.

John Keim @john_keim

Love watching Denver's defense. Lots of speed up front. Sending 6 rushers and stunting. Completely taking over

Broncos getting to Cam Newton

The Panthers QB has been sacked 5 times today. Starting QBs to take at least 4 sacks are 4-18 all-time in the Super Bowl. The Panthers trail the Broncos 16-7 entering the fourth quarter. Follow live

Panthers defensive end Kony Ealy is the fourth player in NFL history with a sack and an interception in the same Super Bowl game. The other three? Tedy Bruschi, Rodney Harrison and Thomas Everett.

Kony Ealy sets Super Bowl record

The Panthers DL is the first player with an interception and two sacks in one Super Bowl.

Ted Ginn has caught more passes for more yards than any other Panther, but good lord. He wants no part of contact. Not even in the Super Bowl.

Sheil Kapadia @SheilKapadia

Panthers had given up two sacks, three QB hits in first two playoff games. Four sacks, nine hits so far. Not even in the fourth quarter yet.

Heather Burns ESPN.com 

Teams with three-plus turnovers are 4-32 in Super Bowls.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

End Kony Ealy is having a big game with two sacks and a pick. He will be a bright spot entering the 2016 season.

Broncos get ball on wild play

Cam Newton's pass went through Ted Ginn's hands and landed right in the hands of Broncos safety T.J. Ward -- who promptly fumbled on the return. Linebacker Danny Trevathan fell on it to secure Denver's third takeaway of Super Bowl 50. Follow live
