The Carolina Panthers’ defense is fighting back.
After the Broncos took possession from Carolina on a forced fumble, Kony Ealy stole the ball back for the Panthers, intercepting Peyton Manning with a spectacular one-handed catch.
It was the second big play of the game for Ealy, who also registered a sack on Manning earlier in the quarter. The Panthers could not take advantage of the pick however, as they punted on the ensuing drive.
Denver took over the ball leading 13–7, and eventually punted back to the Panthers.
