Here’s a look at five players that will have a major impact on Sunday’s Big Game and we provide Predictions for 2016 Super Bowl online for free!
Cam Newton Predictions for 2016 Super Bowl
The no-brainer league MVP, Newton’s terrific play has carried over into the postseason, where he’s accounted for five touchdowns and only one turnover.
He lit up the Arizona Cardinals secondary in the NFC title game to the tune of 335 yards, while also running for 47 yards and two scores.
He’ll go up against the league’s No. 1 ranked defense, a unit which has made some very good quarterbacks look very ordinary this season. Cam’s ability as a dual-threat will need to shine through, as throwing the ball will be a lot more difficult on Sunday.
Peyton Manning Predictions for 2016 Super Bowl
In what’s surely his final pro season, Peyton has a chance to ride off into the sunset on a positive note and capture his second ring.
The Carolina secondary is where the unit has some holes, and while their full season stats are elite, they’ve had some depth issues with that group which have made them beatable in recent weeks.
Peyton won’t be asked to carry the team in the way he’s carried teams in the past, but he will need to make a few key throws to keep drives going and supplement the team’s strong running game.
Greg Olsen Predictions for 2016 Super Bowl
When Kelvin Benjamin went down with a season-ending injury in training camp, two things were abundantly clear – the Panthers were razor thin at wideout, and Olsen was going to have to step up his role in the offense in a big way.
The nine-year pro responded in a big way, hauling in 77 passes for 1,104 yards and seven scores.
He’s continued to be a force in the postseason, hauling in six passes in each of two postseason games for a combined 190 yards and two scores.
After Rob Gronkowski lit up the Broncos’ secondary to the tune of 144 yards and a score on eight catches in the AFC title game, Olsen will need to continue to carry a shallow receiving corps.
Emmanuel Sanders Predictions for 2016 Super Bowl
Sanders’ numbers haven’t jumped off the page during the postseason. He has five catches in each game for a total of 147 yards, but he ranks among the top pass-catchers in the league in yards per route run during the postseason.
He’s made some key catches for the team on their Super Bowl run, and while Demaryius Thomas continues to be the focus of opposing defenses, Sanders will need to make some more of the kinds of catches he’s made all postseason to move the sticks and push the Broncos’ offense up the field.
Thomas Davis Predictions for 2016 Super Bowl
Carolina hasn’t been particularly good at stopping the run during the postseason, but they’ve been able to build such big margins throughout the postseason that their opponents have had to quit on their running games early.
The Cardinals were able to get 60 yards and a touchdown out of David Johnson on 15 carries.
Carolina’s best run stopper has been Thomas Davis, but at best, he’ll show up for the game with a broken arm.
There’s no telling quite yet what kind of help he can be if he suits up, but it’s tough to imagine him making the kinds of plays he has earlier in the season.
