Broncos offense was historically bad in Super Bowl 50 win
The Denver Broncos are Super Bowl 50 champions after their 24-10 win over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, and they made history with a historically bad offensive performance.
The Broncos finished with 194 yards of total offense — the lowest yardage total ever for any Super Bowl champion. They finished with just 11 first downs on offense and they converted just 1 of 14 third downs.

They finished with just 90 yards rushing on 28 carries combined by C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman. Anderson punched in a two-yard touchdown run to cap off a four-yard drive after a turnover.
Peyton Manning finished just 13 of 23 for 141 yards passing with no touchdowns and one interception.
The Broncos’ offense could look a lot different in 2016 if Manning decides to retire. Backup quarterback Brock Osweiler, who went 4-2 in the six games he started and completed this season, is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
