NFL: Super Bowl 50-Carolina Panthers vs Denver BroncosBy Steve Keating SANTA CLARA, Calif. (Reuters) - The Denver Broncos shocked the Carolina Panthers 24-10 as the Super Bowl closed out its first half-century on Sunday with an upset and a cliffhanger as Peyton Manning left everyone guessing about his future. As a glittering shower of golden confetti fell on Levi's Stadium, Manning appeared to have penned the fairytale ending to a Hall of Fame career ready to ride off into the sunset holding the Vince Lombardi trophy, the oldest quarterback to win a Super Bowl and the first to win championships for two franchises. "It's certainly been an emotional week for everybody," said Manning, amid the post-game celebrations.


By Deborah M. Todd SANTA CLARA, Calif. (Reuters) - After basking in the spotlight of a career season, the Carolina Panthers and quarterback Cam Newton fell flat under the glare of the world's biggest stage. The jovial squad known for a high-powered offense and upbeat victory dances was somber in the locker room as media arrived following the 24-10 loss to the Denver Broncos. "This can't turn into the 'what happened to Cam Newton' show.
By Larry Fine SANTA CLARA, Calif. (Reuters) - Peyton Manning crowned a brilliant NFL career on Sunday as he helped steer the Denver Broncos to a Super Bowl victory but put his retirement decision on hold. The 39-year-old Manning, who revolutionized the position while winning a record five NFL most valuable player awards, said he wanted some time to reflect after playing in what many expect to be the final game of his storied career. When he took his turn on the winner's podium to hoist the championship Vince Lombardi Trophy, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said: "I don't know if this is your last rodeo, but we all want to thank you for the ride." But Manning was in no mood to overshadow his team's victory celebration, saying instead that a former coach of his had advised him never to make an emotional decision.
The speedy Broncos defense set the tone early when outside linebacker Vonn Miller barreled into Newton and stripped the ball from his hands before defensive end Malik Jackson fell on the ball in the end zone for the game's first touchdown. Constant pressure and smothering secondary coverage kept Newton and his top-ranked offense from establishing a rhythm. Newton, the regular season's Most Valuable Player, completed 18 of 41 passes and finished with a quarterback rating that was well nearly half of his season average of 99.4.

Denver Broncos' quarterback Peyton Manning in action against the Carolina Panthers during Super Bowl 50 at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California, on February 7, 2016Whatever he decides about his future, Peyton Manning's second Super Bowl victory represents the crowning achievement of an 18-year career that had looked to be in terminal decline. Plagued by poor form and hobbled by a foot injury, Manning's season hit rock bottom in November after a career worst performance against Kansas City that led to him being benched in favor on young back-up Brock Osweiler. Against Carolina on Sunday, Manning was a pale imitation of the prolific quarterback who was named National Football League Most Valuable Player five times between 2003 and 2013.

A construction crane is seen on top of cars along the street in downtown Manhattan, New YorkBy Frank McGurty NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York Mayor Bill de Blasio on Sunday unveiled a series of new policies governing the use of construction booms in the United States' largest city, after a deadly crane collapse in Manhattan highlighted the need for additional safety measures. The city has come under fire for what critics say has been a slow response to a series of recommendations made by a study commissioned to improve safety at work sites at a time when the city is enjoying a surge in construction.


New York City Police officer (NYPD) Peter Liang arrives at Brooklyn Supreme CourtA New York City police officer charged with fatally shooting an unarmed black man in an unlit Brooklyn stairwell is expected to take the stand in his own defense on Monday at his trial for manslaughter. Peter Liang was conducting a routine patrol inside a public housing project on the night of Nov. 20, 2014, when he fired his gun once. The bullet ricocheted off a wall and struck the chest of Akai Gurley, 28, who was walking one floor below with his girlfriend.


A woman looks on next to a banner as soldiers and municipal health workers take part in cleaning of the streets, gardens and homes as part of the city's efforts to prevent the spread of the Zika virus vectorThe rapidly spreading Zika virus is discouraging many Americans from traveling to Latin America and the Caribbean, with 41 percent of those aware of the disease saying they are less likely to take such a trip, a Reuters/Ipsos poll shows. Airlines and cruise ship operators have yet to report drops in bookings because of Zika, and analysts have downplayed the impact that newly sedentary parents-to-be could have on their revenue. "I am actively trying to get pregnant with my husband, so I am a little bit concerned," said Erica, a respondent who said she was bitten by a mosquito during a January trip to the U.S. Virgin Islands, where Zika has been reported.
