Saints News, 2/8/16: Broncos Defeat Panthers 24-10

New, comments

In a defensive slugfest, the Denver Broncos did just enough on Sunday to defeat the Carolina Panthers, 24-10, allowing The Sheriff to potentially ride off into the sunset a champion, much like his GM John Elway. Von Miller won the MVP award, registering 6 tackles, 2.5 sacks and 2 forced fumbles. In awards, Cam Newton won MVP, Drew Brees won clutch performer of the year and Anquan Boldin won Walter Payton's Man of the Year Award.
