I may be biased, but I loved the game.
I was worried leading up to the game. I mean, Carolina's offense could hardly be stopped all year. Sure, the Broncos defense was #1, but it's hard to stop a monster.
Looking back, the Broncos defense had to play perfectly, and they pretty much did. It showed. Cam Newton being held without a touchdown for the only time all year?
I think it won't be long until the Panthers get back to (and probably win) the Super Bowl. They're young and came in cocky. They'll mature into a powerhouse as long as they stay away from injuries, and don't have many personnel changes.
