For the third time in franchise history, the Denver Broncos are Super Bowl champions.

Sunday at Levi's Stadium, Peyton Manning silenced the doubters, and Denver's defense played a perfect game in route to a 24-10 victory in Super Bowl 50.

There were plenty of highlights throughout, but these three plays were the keys to Denver's win.

Von Miller completed a strip sack on Cam Newton, resulting in a touchdown for the Denver Broncos.
