Wrap-up: Broncos 36, Panthers 14
All scoring plays in the NFL are supposed to be reviewed upstairs. Apparently, the guys upstairs didn’t look very hard at Trindon Holliday’s punt return for the Broncos, because he let go of the ball before he crossed the goal line. Like DeSean Jackson years ago, who let go of the ball as he celebrated a touchdown against Dallas before he crossed the goal line, Holliday showboated a bit at the end of his punt return for a touchdown for Denver. He let go of the ball as he stepped in the end zone, except replays showed that he dropped the ball before he actually scored.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – Peyton Manning made sure John Fox’s return to Carolina was a successful one, throwing for 301 yards and a touchdown to lead the Denver Broncos to a 36-14 win over the Panthers on Sunday. Manning threw his 420th touchdown pass to move into a tie for second place on the NFL’s all-time list with Dan Marino. He trails only Brett Favre (508). Manning had plenty of help from his teammates. Von Miller harassed Cam Newton all day and Trindon Holliday returned a punt 76 yards for a touchdown as the Broncos (6-3) won for the fifth time in six weeks. The Broncos sacked Newton seven times, including once for a safety, and Miller pressured him into an interception Tony Carter returned 40 yards for a score. Fox, who coached the Panthers for nine seasons, downplayed his return all week, but celebrated with a few fist pumps Sunday. – By STEVE REED, AP Sports Writer (© Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

Manning, Defense Lead Broncos Over Panthers 36-14
Von Miller and his Denver Broncos teammates forced Carolina Panthers’ quarterback to have a very bad day. Miller, who was drafted just after Newton in the top two picks in 2011, sacked Newton on Carolina’s opening series. In the third quarter, Tony Carter picked off Newton and returned the ball 40 yards for a touchdown. After both the sack and pick-six, Denver celebrated using Newton’s “Superman” move. The Broncos sacked Newton seven times, including one for a safety. Why were they so fired up for Newton and the hapless Panthers? Newton caused the problem himself when he appeared with Miller at an event in the off-season. When a fan asked what Newton thought about playing Miller and the Broncos. According to Miller, Newton stood up, stood over Miller, and said his team was going to crush the Broncos. “That was the one time I was like, ‘Wow.’ He said that in front of a crowd. So I felt kind of challenged,” Miller told USA TODAY Sports this week. Unfortunately for Newton, Miller has a good memory and he let Newton’s comments simmer. That simmering reached a boiling point at exactly the right time. He finished the game with four tackles and a sack. He has 10 sacks this season. Meanwhile Newton’s team lost 36-14, and he was 21 for 36 for 241 yards with two interceptions and two touchdowns.
