The Carolina Panthers managed to turn a Peyton Manning fumble into points to make Super Bowl 50 a one-score game with 10:21 remaining.
Graham Gano’s 39-yard field goal closed the Denver Broncos lead to 16-10 in the fourth quarter.
Manning was sacked and stripped by Panthers defensive end Kony Ealy to give Carolina the ball at midfield. A 16-yard pass to Devin Funchess and 12-yard run by Jonathan Stewart moves the Panthers into the Denver red zone, but a third down pass from Cam Newton to Ted Ginn fell incomplete and Carolina had to settle for the field goal.
If the Panthers are able to rally, they’ll have to do it without receiver Corey Brown, who is out for the remainder of the game with a concussion. Broncos linebacker Shaquil Barrett is also out with a concussion.
