Bay Area native T.J. Ward has come through in a big way for the Denver Broncos, stopping a potential scoring drive from the Cardinla Panthers with an interception of Cam Newton.

A tip of the hat goes out to Danny Trevathan for jumping on the fumble on Ward’s return.

The turnover gave the Broncos a measure of revenge, as Kony Ealy had previously halted a potential Denver scoring drive with an interception of Peyton Manning.

The interception¬†didn’t amount for much for the Broncos, who were quickly forced to punt the ball back to Carolina.

Despite that, Denver still leads 16-7 in the third quarter, and the longer they can keep this a two possession game, the tougher it will be for the Panthers to come back to win Super Bowl 50.
