“They just played better than us,” grumbled Newton. “I got some good advice from (former Indianapolis Colts coach) Tony Dungy. The Denver Broncos shocked the Carolina Panthers 24-10 as the Super Bowl closed out its first half-century on Sunday with an upset and a cliffhanger as Peyton Manning left everyone guessing about his future.
Miller was the number two overall choice in the 2011 NFL draft out of Texas A&M, while Newton was taken first overall after winning a national college championship with Auburn.
Having claimed NFL most valuable player honors on Saturday and his 17-1 Panthers favored by nearly a touchdown, Newton’s coronation seemed almost certain.
“It’s certainly been an emotional week for everybody,” said Manning, amid the post-game celebrations. They took Cam Newton,” Miller said in the run-up to the National Football League’s title game.
The golden Super Bowl was much hyped as a passing of the baton with Manning the aging super star giving way to Panthers’ flashy quarterback Cam Newton, who did not live up to his Superman nickname against a top ranked Denver defense that proved to be his kryptonite.
