The 50th Super Bowl matchup is now officially set.

On championship Sunday, the Denver Broncos defeated the New England Patriots 20-18 while the Carolina Panthers defeated the Arizona Cardinals 49-15.  Denver won thanks to two touchdown passes by Peyton Manning and a suffocating defense that kept Tom Brady under constant pressure all day long.  The Patriots made a comeback attempt as they scored a touchdown with under a minute left, but their two point conversion attempt was stopped, sealing the victory for Denver.  Carolina won behind a completely dominant all-around performance.  Cam Newton scored four touchdowns (two passing and two rushing) while the Panthers defense forced seven Cardinals turnovers (six by Carson Palmer) in a rout.

The matchup will feature the top two seeds in the overall playoff race, as the Broncos were the AFC's top seed with a 12-4 record while the Panthers were the NFC's top seed with a 15-1 record.  It's the third straight Super Bowl to feature two number one seeds.

There will be plenty to talk about over the next two weeks as we get ready for Super Bowl 50, and we'll look at several Colts-related angles of the game as well.  But for now, we know the matchup is all set: in two weeks, the Broncos will face the Panthers for the Lombardi Trophy.  Here's the important need-to-know information:
