Can the Broncos actually beat the Panhers? Does Cam Newton own any other pairs of black and gold pants? How drunk will we need to be to watch this game unfold?
The answers to those questions and more should come this Sunday, when the NFL's 50th Super Bowl kicks off for Denver and Carolina. The Broncos, as you know, rode a pretty strong ground game and phenomenal defense all the way to the game, while the Panthers have more or less been kicking everyone's asses for two months on both sides of the ball, with the notable exception of a plucky Atlanta Falcons team. Everyone expects Carolina to win for that reason, and while it's hard to disagree with the logic, I'm gonna hope for the best.
Here's what you need to know to watch the Super Bowl. We'll have odds, our pick, and predictions for you in the days ahead. Go ahead and share your thoughts on the game.
