Let that just sink in a moment.
Levis stadium opens to fans at 2:00 eastern time. I will be covering the action from the field early. Follow me on Twitter to get a behind the scenes look.
The weather here in the San Francisco has been phenomenal. This should be the perfect day for a football game.
Keys to Panthers Victory
- Establish the run early. The Broncos defense is fast, but smaller in nature. They could be susceptible to the Panthers power running game. If the Panthers can establish the run early with 4-5 yard runs per attempt, the game is all but in the bag.
- Get physical with Manning. He may not have the arm strength, but he is basically an offensive coordinator on the field. If he has time to throw, he is still capable of picking a defense apart. If the Panthers can apply pressure with their front four, there will be at least one Peyton Manning interception today.
- Seize the moment. This is still a young Panthers team, although they do have key veteran leadership. A Superbowl victory is not a given, and nothing is worse than a Superbowl loss. Panthers fans know this all to well. Now is the time for a complete game in all phases. Own this day.
