Broncos vs. Panthers Details
Denver Broncos vs. Carolina Panthers
The Broncos and Panthers met in Super Bowl 50, and that memorable game has led to continued interest in matchups between to the two teams.
Both teams came into Super Bowl 50 as the top seed in their conference. The Broncos had the NFL’s best defense for the 2017 season, and the Panthers had the league’s best offense. The star of the Panthers’ offense was 2015 NFL MVP Cam Newton; linebacker Von Miller led the way for the Broncos’ defense.
The Broncos have been through some changes since Super Bowl 50. Most notable is the retirement of quarterback Peyton Manning. While the Broncos still boast one of the NFL’s best defensive units, they’re still looking for a reliable quarterback to replace Manning. Cam Newton still leads the Panthers offense.
Historic Broncos vs. Panthers Games
Super Bowl 50: The Panthers entered Super Bowl 50 with a 15-1 record in the regular season, and their offense scored more points than any other team. The Panthers scored a record 49 points in the NFC Championship game on their way to the Super Bowl, and quarterback Cam Newton easily won MVP that year.
But defense was the story of Super Bowl 50. The Broncos scored on a field goal in their opening drive and led for the rest of the game. The Broncos defense sacked Newton six times, intercepted him once, and forced two fumbles. Newton passed for just 265 yards on the game. The Broncos won the game 24-10 with just 194 yards on offense. Super Bowl 50 was also the last game in legendary quarterback Peyton Manning’s career. Manning also struggled in the game. He did not throw a touchdown pass but was able to complete a two point conversion near the end.
A Quick Rematch: Fans didn’t have to wait long for a Super Bowl 50 rematch. The Panthers and Broncos played each other in week one of the following season. The Broncos won again in the second game.
When do the Broncos and Panthers play each other?
The Broncos and Panthers play in opposite conferences--the Panthers play in the NFC, and the Broncos play in the AFC. With the way the NFL schedule works, a team from the NFC will play against all four teams from one division in the AFC each year. The schedule rotates from year to year. This means that it can take four years to get a specific NFC vs. AFC matchup in the regular season. The Broncos and Panthers played a regular season game against each other in the opening game of the 2016 season, so the next matchup should take place in 2020.
Of course, the NFC and AFC also meet in the playoffs, but not until the Super Bowl. So if you’re hoping to see a playoff matchup between Denver and Carolina, it’ll have to be another Super Bowl meeting.
The Broncos play their home games at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. The Panthers play at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Super Bowl is held at a neutral site--Super Bowl 50 was held at Levi’s Stadium, which is the home stadium for the San Francisco 49ers.
