CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Superman is headed for the Super Bowl.
He’s taking the Carolina Panthers with him.
Cam Newton threw for two touchdowns and ran for two others, and Carolina’s big-play defense stifled the league’s top-ranked offense in a 49-15 romp Sunday for the NFC championship.
The NFL’s new top man at quarterback – Newton is an All-Pro this season – will lead the Panthers against five-time MVP Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos in two weeks. Carolina is favored by four points.
