Ten days after the U.S. entered into war, Whitney Houston didn't just sing the national anthem at Super Bowl XXV -- she owned it. This is the story of her moment in time.

Graham Gano's 39-yard FG cuts Denver lead to 16-10. That puts the combined FGs over 3.5 (Brandon McManus has 3). Gano's kick is the longest so far but still under 45.5 for longest field goal. Shortest FG so far was 30-harder for McManus, which would be over 26.5 for shortest field goal.

Defenses continue to dominate. Both teams have gone over 2.5 sacks (and over 5 combined sacks). Props on whether Peyton Manning and Cam Newton would throw INTs both cashed (and over 1.5 combined INTs). Ten punts is sitting on combined over/under 10 right now.

Panthers settle for FG, cut lead to 6

Following the turnover, the Panthers moved into field goal range, setting up Graham Gano for a 39-yard kick. The made field goal trimmed the Broncos' lead to 16-10 with 10:21 left in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl 50. Follow live

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

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

Kony Ealy's big Super Bowl continues, as he knocked the ball out of Peyton Manning's hand, forcing a fumble and giving the ball back to Carolina near midfield early in the fourth quarter. Follow live

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.

Panthers wide receiver Philly Brown is in the locker room being tested for a concussion.

Kevin Seifert NFL Nation 

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.

Kony Ealy sets Super Bowl record

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

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.
