CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

The Panthers have just three days before they step onto the field for Super Bowl 50 against the Denver Broncos. We're on your side, breaking down the backend of the Panthers' defense against the Broncos passing game.

The Panthers secondary comes in playing lights out football, Broncos' quarterback Peyton Manning not so much. 

After a season in which Manning threw 17 interceptions in just 10 games, Manning has thrown for just over 450 yards and two touchdowns since returning from injury in week 17. Many of those passes have looked slow and weak.

But, he does have some great weapons to throw to including Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. Both are known to get loose for long touchdowns.

For the Panthers, it starts with cornerback Josh Norman. He's been one of the best in the league all year and will likely matchup with Thomas.

On the other side, it will be either Cortland Finnegan or Robert McClain against Sanders. That could be a matchup the Broncos try to exploit.

The Panthers have forced six interceptions, including two 'Pick 6's already this postseason. They should look to continue that success against Manning and the Broncos.
