Why the Denver Broncos are the next Super Bowl Champions


After watching the AFC championship game, it is hard not to say the Denver Broncos are poised for a Super Bowl victory. With a defense that will most likely go down as one of the best in NFL history, future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning, and a great running attack led by C.J. Anderson, the odds are in favor of Denver.

Some people may say that the Carolina Panthers’ demolition of the Arizona Cardinals in the NFC championship showed why the Panthers are guaranteed to win the Super Bowl. However, I think the Broncos defense is too much of a force for Panthers quarterback Cam Newton to handle. Newton is a special talent, but I believe Von Miller will have at least two sacks in the game (and I’m not just saying this because I am an Alabama fan). In addition, the Broncos secondary, featuring a pair of Pro-Bowl corners in Chris Harris jr. and Aqib Talib, will prove a challenge to Ted Ginn jr. and Greg Olsen in the passing game. 

On the other side of the ball, it’s a pretty simple argument. Peyton Manning. Those two words are enough to convince a lot of people. Though he may have had a poor year for his career, one cannot deny the Manning magic in the playoffs. He always finds a way to get the job done.

C.J. Anderson will have  a monster game. The former Cal Bear has been running through defenses all season, and in the biggest game football has to offer, there’s no reason why he won’t turn up the intensity even more. I predict that Anderson will have at least 100 yards and two touchdowns.

Needless to say, this Super Bowl is going to be one for the ages. But when it’s all said and done, I believe the Denver Broncos will be hoisting the Lombardi Trophy.
