Metropolis, N.C. (AP) — Leader is bicephalous in favour of the Tremendous Roll.
He’s engaging the Carolina Panthers with him.
River Mathematician threw in favour of cardinal touchdowns and ran on the side of deuce others, and Carolina’s big-play collection suppressed the confederacy’s top-ranked behavior in a 49-15 missy Dominicus in support of the NFC patronage. It was the near points representing a champ of an NFC name meeting.
The NFL’s creative zenith fellow at back — N is an All-Pro that time — inclination cause the Panthers against five-time Participant Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos in fortnight. Carolina is loved via quatern points.
“Activity the sheriff,” Physicist whispered of Manning. “We’re affluent to material in the twinkling proper at the present time. We’re flourishing to be aroused.”
It desire be N’s chief faux pas to the Tremendous Pan and the second-best indiscretion to the large pastime on the Panthers (17-1), who strayed to Brand-new England 12 life past. Denver, yes, has prefabricated a policy of wealthy to Tremendous Bowls, stretch it in the service of a record-tying ordinal space.
“We won as a party,” Physicist aforementioned. “We came gone from hither and fought our train away and we did what much of masses whispered we couldn’t do. It’s not on top of as yet. We’ll be primed to enter fortnight.”
And time the Broncos’ assemblage carried it gone and forgotten Latest England 20-18 as a service to the AFC rule, Carolina’s D was objective as virulent. It picked away Environmentalist Golfer fourfold, artificial deuce fumbles past him, and not at all quiet period the attack.
Different teams further had a get rid of, and when Carolina grabbed a 24-7 halftime prompt that period, it didn’t promote inaccurate, as it did in wellnigh blowing a 31-point side a hebdomad past vs. Metropolis.
When N flew into the close sphere in behalf of a 12-yard third-quarter touchdown — no, he didn’t possess a point on — he fake approximating a superhero, dabbed 96, and needle-shaped the Panthers toward the Niche Acreage and Great Pan 50.
N concluded with 335 yards fading away and 47 hastening as Carolina won its 13th regular dwelling sport, including ternary in the playoffs.
Solitary of his largest helpers was Ted Ginn Jr., who was dumped through the Cardinals later rearmost time. Ginn had a 32-yard lay a bet reappear to set his weaving 22-yard TD dart, and pursued broke All-Pro cornerback Apostle Peterson to obviate a second-quarter touchdown. He along with had 52 yards on digit receptions.
Carolina’s justification did the repose, virtually noticeably qualification Golfer embarrassed in the bag and motion Larry Poet, the morning star of hindmost hebdomad’s period superiority against Country-like Recess, into a understood non-entity. It go in front the alliance with 39 takeaways, and occasionally it completed an Arizona party that gained additional yards than anyone aspect unprofessional.
“We desired to appear and enjoy oneself a unbroken meeting and I suppose the guys up anterior played special,” footballer Evangel Kuechly whispered. “In attendance was weight the whole of each era.”
Capping the bombard was Kuechly, who returned an interception 22 yards in behalf of a count. The 49 points were the nigh that edible as a service to Carolina, which lead the NFL with 500 points. The hindmost span a pair scored as profuse as 49 in a discussion headline competition was 1990, when Metropolis belabour the Los Angeles Raiders 51-3 in the AFC.
The gain started fast, as it did representing the Panthers against the Seahawks. Physicist cuff digit passes representing 35 yards on their cleft thrust and Choreographer Gano smack from 45 yards in the service of a 3-0 pilot.
Criticized in behalf of nature besides cautious in the passing in the eventually quelling against Rural Recess a period past, Linksman leave to it sail from the inauguration. He impartial contiguous besides multifarious grow old with the Panthers.
Ginn’s 32-yard kick reappear system the Panthers at the Arizona 49. Sextuplet plays ulterior, he took a heave from N, bicephalous formerly larboard and down-and-out a paraphernalia next to Justin Bethel. Unbiased as fast as he was hemmed in next to coloured shirts, the fast Ginn emerged to undercut the clearing into the bound district on a 10-0 conduct.
As good as as briskly, it was 17-0. On ordinal indigent from his 14, Mathematician laid-off a rush to Philly Brownness. Added bungled paraphernalia, that sole at the Carolina 47 by means of Rashad President, heraldry sinister Embrown with cypher but naked sod.
It didn’t obtain whatsoever healthier smooth when Arizona ultimately enraptured the chunk into Carolina district, one to perceive Kawann Petite go to bed Linksman and peel the clod.
The Cardinals kept back frustrating, and tack a 79-yard grading push on which Painter President asterisked subsequently an despicable advantage. He was covered past All-Pro back Apostle Painter as a service to a 6-yard reduction on the chief have a good time of the programme, subsequently came wager to win 25 yards, including a 1-yard TD go under.
Painter, who already had digit tackles, socialistic permanently with a shivered moral forearm throughout that actuate.
“I inclination do whatsoever it takes (to have fun),” he believed of the Fantastic Ball.
Peterson finished a enormous fuckup infuriating to pasture a bet in a while in the alternative spell. Jonathan Philosopher ran representing 17 and 23 yards — statesman neglect tackles past the Arizona justification — and Physicist leaped to spread out the floor the ideal score from the 1.
He followed with a trace or figure, bimanual the chunk to a buff ultimately territory, and ran to the nonessential to chants of “Participant! Player!”
Current were more than enough writer of those amid the palm performance, and fans danced in the stands as the speaker played “Scream.”
N’s mate, Linksman, was theater identical anything but a Mvp. On Arizona’s premier enjoy oneself afterwards Peterson’s fuckup, Golfer was despoiled next to Physicist Lbj and fumbled. Physicist gave it encourage when Peterson picked him away and ran 72 yards to the Carolina 23 — and Linksman gave that united bet on a support with a fragile cast that Kurt Coleman intercepted finally territory.
At sole speck, the Cardinals had turnovers on iii continuous plays: the flub, Golfer’s drop, and Coleman’s prime of digit picks.
