Super Bowl 50, chunky-style, sorta like the field the NFL forced the Broncos and Panthers to play on: I know the year is young, but the Super Bowl had perhaps the story of the year, just as long as you don't look at Peyton Manning's numbers. John Elway 1, John Fox 0. That failure to...

Make it an even 50 Super Bowls without one of the more exciting plays in football. There has yet to be a punt return for a touchdown in Super Bowl history, but Broncos return man Jordan Norwood came close in the second quarter. The Panthers seemed to believe Norwood had called for a fair catch...
