This Sunday, the Carolina Panthers will face the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50. A showdown of young quarterback Cam Newton and likely-to-retire legendary quarterback Peyton Manning, this is one of the most anticipated Super Bowls in recent memory. For that reason, you should catch yourself up on the history of the championship and these two teams before the big game.

This 3-minute video includes valuable game-time talking points, Super Bowl trivia, and even the basic rules of the game. And it's short enough that you can focus on the important pre-game prep: ordering pizza and frying hot wings.
