Broncos land in San Jose, California; Panthers on way

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) The Denver Broncos arrived in the Bay Area on Sunday for Northern California's first Super Bowl since 1985.

The NFC champion Carolina Panthers were scheduled to join the AFC champs later in the day.

Denver's flight into San Jose, California, was delayed by an hour. The team flew in a customized United Airlines jet with a Broncos logo over the door. Someone in the cockpit waved a Broncos flag out of a window as the airplane taxied along the tarmac.

Former Broncos running back Terrell Davis, the Super Bowl MVP in 1998, met the players as they exited the jet.

The Broncos are in their second Super Bowl in three years; they lost 43-8 to Seattle in 2014 in New Jersey.
