Third-quarter analysis: Danny Trevathan around the ball for Broncos

Denver Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan had one career fumble recovery in 56 career games coming into Super Bowl 50.

Trevathan had two fumble recoveries against the Carolina Panthers, the second of which came in the third quarter after Denver safety T.J. Ward intercepted Cam Newton. Ward stumbled as he got to his feet and probably should have just stayed down, but attempted to start running. He lost the ball as he was tackled, but Trevathan was able to pounce on it, maintaining possession for Denver at its own 7-yard line.

Newton's interception was the third turnover of the game for the Panthers.

No good: Panthers kicker Graham Gano bounced a 44-yard field goal attempt no good off the right upright on Carolina's first drive of the third quarter. Gano, who hadn't missed a field goal since Week 15 of the regular season, missed two during pre-game warmups in the same direction, according to the CBS broadcast.

What a grab: Panthers receiver Philly Brown is 5-foot-11, but he soared for a 42-yard reception between a pair of Broncos defenders. Unfortunately, Brown was injured on the play, as his helmet slammed off the turf as he came to the ground. Brown was taken to the locker room and evaluated for a possible concussion.
