Behind a stout defensive performance, the Broncos bested the Panthers 24-10 in a historic victory for quarterback Peyton Manning, who became the first to reach 200 wins in the potentially career-capping championship win.
Defensive powerhouse Von Miller, who missed his chance at a Super Bowl start two years ago with Denver due to a season-ending injury, received the game's MVP award for his intense pressure on Carolina quarterback Cam Newton wire to wire.
But just like most major television events, the Internet was the real MVP. Here are some of the best memes from during and after the big game.
