For the Broncos, keeping Peyton Manning up-right and in the pocket is the key to winning this game. The Carolina Panthers have one of the best pass rushes in the NFL led by Kawann Short and Charles Johnson.
The Denver offensive line will be the X-Factor should they win Super Bowl 50.
The Broncos will most likely try to get the ball out of Manning's hand and to his playmakers as quick as possible. That mean quick two and three step drops will be important in order for the Broncos to get off to a good start. Once they get in a rhythm is when the offensive line become even more important. Those quick completions will open up the passing game down field, putting pressure on the offensive line to keep Peyton Manning from getting sacked.
If they can protect Manning early to where the Broncos can open up the playbook throughout the game, the offensive line will be the reason why the Broncos win Super Bowl 50.
