And that was how the Broncos won a Super Bowl championship. Newton did not get a clear picture of the coverage on a number of snaps.

The Panthers’ offense was never in a rhythm in Super Bowl 50, thanks to a special performance by the Broncos. On read option plays, the Broncos forced Newton to hand the ball off, and relied on their run defense up front to control the point of attack. The Broncos constantly changing with multiple coverage looks gave Newton problems, as did a constant pass rush.  In the passing game, the Broncos showed a number of different coverages from the first quarter on, with many three-, four- and five-man rush concepts.

And the Panthers dialed up a play that at very least could have gotten them a huge chunk of yards to get them into Broncos territory.
