Here’s a simultaneously hilarious and tragic bit of video that might throw a few kinks into everyone’s Cam Newton takes:
It was not a particularly thrilling game, occasionally a sloppy one, but that doesn’t mean the Super Bowl wasn’t good, not if you appreciate work on both sides of the ball. There is something uniquely enjoyable about watching an all-time defense successfully crack an elite offense, or a pass rush so intimidating that…
Roger Goodell banned NFL players from endorsing alcohol products almost a decade ago, so hearing Peyton Manning speak proudly of his thirst for a third-rate Belgian lager after winning tonight’s Super Bowl might have raised your eyebrows. But it’s not even the first time Peyton Manning has mentioned the brand; he did…
Did Denver have a tremendous amount of faith in its defense? Did Denver have absolutely no faith in Peyton Manning? Chicken-and-egg, but either way it worked, and Denver won Super Bowl 50, 24-10.
The Panthers clawed back to within three points of the Broncos with this second quarter dive over the lines by Jonathan Stewart. With the hundreds of photographers in the stadium keyed up for a goal line touchdown, we got a ton of cool angles of Stewart’s touchdown.
Just about everyone thinks the Carolina Panthers will win Super Bowl 50. ESPN asked 70 staffers for their predictions and 53 of them chose the Panthers. Eight SI writers out of 10 picked Carolina too. The Panthers opened as 3.5 point favorites and so many people bet on them, that the line swelled to 6 at one point.…
At some point tomorrow, the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos will play against each other in the Super Bowl. However, a much more widely-contested game, between, oh, every publication, has already started.
This February, as every February, the football fandom community is awhirl with speculation about the timing of the Super Bowl. The NFL has dropped a breadcrumb trail of clues in the promotional campaign leading up to Sunday’s big game, and plenty of football fans think they know exactly when kickoff will happen.
Yesterday, the Washington Post reported that two private investigators hired by Peyton Manning went to the home of Charles Sly’s parents shortly after Sly made hidden-camera allegations about Manning’s alleged HGH usage in an Al-Jazeera documentary. The investigators spooked Sly’s family, which led to them making a…
The parents of a former Indianapolis anti-aging clinic employee who made hidden-camera accusations about Peyton Manning’s alleged HGH use called 9-1-1 after goons turned up on their doorstep seeking information about their pharmacist son, Charlie Sly.
Jimmy Fallon dragged out his Tonight Show Superlatives gag for the Super Bowl, and not even backup Broncos center James Ferentz was immune. He really does look like the adult version of the kid from Up, though.
Broncos practice squad safety Ryan Murphy was questioned as part of a prostitution sting on Tuesday, according to multiple reports. CBS San Francisco reports that the sting took place in northern San Jose, about a 10 minute drive from the 49ers’ stadium, the site of Super Bowl 50 on Sunday. While Murphy wasn’t…
While Broncos defensive coordinator Wade Phillips fielded questions at the Super Bowl’s media row Monday, but he got some help with his appearance from cornerback Aqib Talib.
The singular off-the-field storyline of this Super Bowl week would be—if Peyton Manning played along—Manning’s last game. But publicly, he’s remained mum, giving just one hint that he’s even thought about it. Privately, it’s apparently a different story.
Members of the media got to poke around Levi’s Stadium yesterday, and watched the grounds crew paint the various logos on the field. But a couple of particularly observant folks noticed a minor screw-up.
Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller sure is a lot of fun. Here he is in the locker room after the AFC Championship game, making jokes about the ball he picked off Tom Brady being a little deflated:
The narrator of this video says that a Broncos fan kicked over a portable toilet, with a Patriots fan inside, after Sunday’s game in Denver.
