The Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers face off this Sunday in the 50th annual Super Bowl. This year's game, properly titled Super Bowl 50 in a departure from the traditional use of roman numerals, will be played at 6:35 pm Eastern Sunday night at Levi's Stadium, the home field for the San Francisco 49ers. Currently, the Panthers are favored by 5.5 points for the game.
This game features a quarterback matchup of a future Hall of Famer nearing the end of his career in Denver's Peyton Manning and the presumed 2016 NFL MVP and rising star in Carolina's Cam Newton. Can Manning put it together for one last game, then ride off into the sunset with a second career Super Bowl ring? Will Newton continue to dominate, using both his arm and his legs, to bring the Panthers their first Super Bowl Championship?
This year, the league has hired Lady Gaga to sing the National Anthem before the game, then will have Coldplay as the halftime entertainment. Coldplay will be joined by Beyonce and Bruno Mars during the performance, both of whom have previously headlined Super Bowl halftime shows, with Beyonce the main entertainment at Super Bowl XLVII and Mars a year later at Super Bowl XLVIII. Now, two years after Mars' headlining, they both will be back to support Coldplay's halftime show.
