Denver Broncos defense shuts down Cam Newton for Lombardi Trophy

Super Bowl 50 is done. Once again defense proved to be key for a world championship.

The Denver Broncos defense dominated from the beginning of the game and did not give up. They blocked the running the game.  They obstructed the passing game.  They even prevented the NFL’s Most Valuable Player, quarterback Cam Newton, from getting out of the pocket.

Newton, the first pick of the 2011 NFL Draft…

Only completed 18 of 41 passes.
Fumbled twice.
Did not have one touchdown pass.
Was sacked him seven times.

It was a bad day for Superman.  There was nothing that he could do. Denver Broncos linebacker, Von Miller (drafted right after him), was his kryptonite.

Miller led the Broncos with 2.5 sacks and forced a fumble that led to the team’s first touchdown. He had a great game, but this year’s Heels & Helmets REAL GAME CHANGER AWARD goes to Malik Jackson. The defensive end hustled, recovered that fumbled and scored the touchdown. This set the tone for the entire defense. They were not just going to halt Cam, they were going to do everything in their power to win. Watch the highlight here.

Congratulations to our golden Super Bowl Champions, the Denver Broncos!

Get in the game!
