The Denver Broncos defense was the star of the night shutting down the Carolina Panthers offense on the way to a 24-10 victory. As with any sports event, the Twitter world was on top of its game in reacting to the game. Let’s take a look at the top tweets from the night. 

Shea Serrano perfectly summing up how a lot of America feels right now. While you’re sad that Cam didn’t cap off his MVP season with a victory, you’re happy to see The Sheriff sidle off into the sunset with a win. Now, just because he got the win, doesn’t mean that people weren’t getting their shots in. 

Granted, Manning didn’t have a good game. So, that’s fair criticism. Not only was Peyton under fire from the Twitter world, his brother Eli got some camera time and the Internet took advantage.

Yep Eli, you’re now tied with 2 Super Bowl rings. Sorry bud. But, this tweet won the entire night. 

Yes you’re seeing that correctly. That would be Papa John giving Peyton Manning the cheek kiss post-game. I mean, I’d probably kiss Peyton too. Guaranteed there are a lot of late night pizzas being sold in Denver tonight. Finally, just in case you missed the “Super Bowl Babies” commercial just remember:
