On Sunday, February 7, 2016, we will be able to see the most epic event of the year: a Coldplay concert sandwiched between a football game. I hope they play lots of non-Coldplay songs!
The game starts at 6:30 PM, and will be on CBS, streamed lived on CBSSports, the CBSSports app, and the NFL Mobile App for Verizon customers. Tickets themselves reportedly start on StubHub for $3,500 each. Played in the new Levi's stadium in Santa Clara, California, we will see the Denver Broncos v. the (struggles emotionally to type) Carolina Panthers.
The Broncos, of course, rode a ridiculous defense and competent offense to the playoffs. I cannot begin to describe how much talent there is on their roster. Atlanta would probably have one player good enough to start on their defense, and that player is, of course, Desmond Trufant. They bullied Tom Brady all day, something previously thought to be impossible.
The Carolina Panthers embarrassed the Arizona Cardinals, and seemingly scored at will. Carolina got out to a fast lead, and never let up. They dismantled every part of the Cardinals, who were in the discussion of the best team in the league throughout the season. Cam Newton may be playing better than anyone ever expected back when he was drafted.
We are all Broncos fans for the next two weeks.
