A tearful address by Peyton Manning on the eve of the Super Bowl laid the foundation for Denver's upset victory over the Carolina Panthers, the veteran quarterback's Broncos team-mates revealed Sunday. Just hours before kick-off of Sunday's National Football League season showpiece, it emerged that Manning had choked back tears as he addressed the Broncos with veteran defensive star DeMarcus Ware on Saturday. Manning, 39, spoke to the team about their rollercoaster route to the Super Bowl, which saw him battle through injury and loss of form before finally securing a second Super Bowl triumph.
By Nick Mulvenney CAMPBELLTOWN, Australia (Reuters) - The numbers were modest and the hour a lot less sociable than in California but Australian NFL fans had themselves a proper Super Bowl party in the hometown of San Francisco 49ers punt returner Jarryd Hayne on Monday. Australia has traditionally had one of the highest viewing figures pro rata for the Super Bowl outside the United States with some 200,000 out of a population of 23 million tuning in for the 2014 showpiece. The NFL received huge exposure Down Under last year when Hayne made the audacious decision to cut short his career as one of the biggest stars in the country's National Rugby League (NRL) and head stateside to play for the 49ers.
