Kony Ealy has forced his second turnover of Super Bowl 50, stripping Peyton Manning of the ball at midfield to halt a Denver Broncos scoring drive.

Ealy also recovered the fumble for the Carolina Panthers.

If by some chance the Panthers do come back to win Super Bowl 50, Ealy might be playing his way into an MVP award. Ealy already has one interception, and now has three sacks and a forced fumble.

The interception came when Denver was already in field goal range and if the sack had instead gone for a short gain, they would have had at least a chance at a short field goal.

Carolina did manage to kick a field goal after the fumble, but still trail 16-10 with more than 10 minutes remaining in Super Bowl 50.
