Denver's Peyton Manning and Carolina's Cam Newton are at the opposite ends of their NFL careers as they lead their teams into Super Bowl 50.

Manning is playing in his fourth and very possibly last Super Bowl. He already has one ring and also was that game's MVP. He's won the league MVP trophy five times but had a rough time this season as he battled injuries and inconsistent play.

Newton is playing in his first Super Bowl but could very possibly appear in many others. Just five years into his NFL career, he's enjoyed a breakthrough season and is likely to be named league MVP for the first time.

One of them will be a Super Bowl champion in less than two weeks. It will be the first Super Bowl matchup between two quarterbacks selected No. 1 overall (albeit 13 years apart).

The two teams were the top seeds coming out of their conferences, although the Panthers were four-point favorites as of Sunday night. They've played each other only four times (in 1997, 2004, '08 and '12) with Denver winning three of those games.

Who will come out on top this time?
