SuperBroncos!


Celebrating with my Denver Broncos over their Superbowl 50 victory! Peyton Manning’s leadership, a stellar defense, successful field goals, and a team effort carried them to a 24-10 win over the Carolina Panthers. Here are some records and incidents of note:

•Manning is the only quarterback to win 2 Superbowls with 2 different teams (his first was with the Inadianapolis Colts in 2007)

•Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak is the first person to win Superbowls as a player, then as a coach for the same team

•The Broncos won with the fewest number of offensive yards of any Superbowl

•Bronco Jordan Norwood had the longest punt return in Superbowl history

•Manning now has the most wins of any quarterback – 200 games won

•Manning is also the oldest quarterback to win a Superbowl

•Superbowl 50 was the most watched program in TV history

•Over 1 million people turned out for the victory parade in Denver

Today…

Quarterback Payton Manning broke the record for the most passing yards in any regular season.

The Broncos as a team have broken the record for the most points scored in a regular season. This season, they scored 606 points.

For the first time in 5 years…


In last Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys, Denver Bronco quarterback Peyton Manning made a rush touchdown that even confused the cameraman! It was the first time he’d made a rush TD in 5 years.

History books and Superbowl 47


I’m a Denver Broncos fan so I was rather disappointed when they lost their playoff game to the Baltimore Ravens. However, there was some history made in that game.

Denver’s Trindon Holliday returned both a punt and a kickoff for touchdowns, the first time that had been accomplished in a playoff game.

The touchdowns he got with those two plays were also the longest touchdowns in NFL playoff history.

But it all worked out when the Ravens won the Superbowl. We were hoping that whoever won would glorify God and vocal Christian Ray Lewis, who leads his team in Bible verse repetitions before games and gives God the credit for team wins, did just that, quoting “When God is for you, who can be against you?” (a paraphrase of Romans 8:31) when it was his turn to hold the Lombardi trophy.

Here are a few more records set during Superbowl 47:

It was the longest Superbowl so far, clocking in at 4 hours and 14 minutes.

The opposing teams were coached by the Harbaugh brothers, John and Jim.

San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernik threw the first interception the 49ers have had in any Superbowl game.
