Peyton Manning completed 13-of-23 passes for 141 yards and an interception in the Broncos' Super Bowl win over the Panthers, 24-10.
A tweet from Marshawn Lynch on Sunday night indicated Lynch plans to retire.
Lynch's tweet -- accessible at the link below -- has a "deuces" sign with two fingers up and a picture of Marshawn's green cleats. The cleats are hanging; BeastMode seems poised to "hang 'em up" after nine NFL seasons.
Corey Brown is done for the day in Super Bowl 50 due to a concussion.
It's a big blow to Carolina's offense, which is down by two scores and will likely need to throw the ball successfully to engineer a comeback. Brown has been the Panthers' best wide receiver this postseason, and had a team-high 80 yards before exiting.
Corey Brown left Sunday's Super Bowl game against the Broncos with a possible concussion.
Brown has had a huge postseason and showed up big time in the Super Bowl before leaving, catching 4-of-7 targets for 80 yards. One play after Brown left the game, Ted Ginn deflected a target into the hands of Broncos ILB Danny Trevathan, giving the ball back to Denver. The Broncos lead 16-7. Brown will need to pass the NFL's in-game concussion tests in order to return.
The Broncos indeed started C.J. Anderson over Ronnie Hillman in Super Bowl 50.
Longtime beat writer Mike Klis reported this would happen before game time. Anderson has been a far superior runner to Hillman since the first six weeks of the season, and is now being featured ahead of Hillman in Sunday's bout with the Panthers. As of halftime, Anderson had 58 yards on eight carries. Two of Hillman's three first-half runs were thrown for a loss.
Jonathan Stewart limped off the field with a left foot injury on the Panthers' second drive of the Super Bowl, but returned on the team's fourth possession.
Stewart has battled toe, foot, and ankle injuries for his entire NFL career, and ankle problems most recently. He was listed as questionable to return before coming back on the field late in the first quarter.
9 News Denver's Mike Klis reports the Broncos will start C.J. Anderson over Ronnie Hillman in Super Bowl 50.
Hillman has technically been Denver's starter since Week 6, after Anderson got off to a painfully slow start. Anderson has severely outplayed Hillman ever since and especially in the playoffs, where Hillman is averaging 2.00 yards per carry and Anderson is averaging nearly five. Klis notes Hillman will remain involved, but Anderson "will get the first chance to find his rhythm."
Panthers declared RB Cameron Artis-Payne, WR Brenton Bersin, CB Lou Young, S Dean Marlowe, RB Brandon Wegher, WR Kevin Norwood, and DE Ryan Delaire inactive for Super Bowl 50 against the Broncos.
Fifth-round rookie Artis-Payne has been inactive since losing a red-zone fumble in Carolina's Divisional Round win over the Seahawks. He'll return in 2016 to compete for the top backup job behind Jonathan Stewart. RE Jared Allen (foot) and WLB Thomas Davis (arm) are active, as expected.
