lot of negative plays for offenses. they've created a lot of turnovers, given their offense a lot of short fields. as you watch the game unfold, you see the scoreboard, 7-0, 14- 0, and it's like the guy singing the national anthem is still on the field. game hasn't started yet. >> manning hasn't been great this season, but good game management. he's been good enough in the playoffs, two key td passes over the patriots, both to owen daniels. and he did not make any big mistakes. the panthers know they have to get by number 18 to achieve their goal. >> i don't think anybody understands the pass like peyton manning. everything he's accomplished, hall of famer, and if we were writing a storybook, that's probably some guy we'd want to beat for the championship.

it's much more a talking point to advance the super bowl i think than a serious issue manning has to deal with. >> manning says this is not going to be a distraction for the broncos as they get ready for the super bowl. lauren? let's take a look outside this morning. this is vail pass, where you can see the snow has started to fall in this area. it's coming down nicely in the high country. if you're traveling up there, watch out for the snow. it's going to fall heavily here and get more widespread. we have some big flakes looks like, cars moving nicely up there. be careful out there. across the front range, we are on the windy side. it will be windy in the foothills today, gusty winds, up to 60 miles an hour in areas, even 65 miles an hour. foothills are very gusty today. we won't be as windy here in
tomorrow we're about 58, still partly sunny skies tomorrow. but the mountains are going to see heavier snowfall, really cranking up overnight tonight and possibly through parts of the day on sunday. denver may not see the snow from that system till sunday, maybe in the later morning hours, afternoon. doesn't look like a ton for us from the sunday system. we'll have another system coming in on monday and it's more powerful, with potential to bring possible significant front range. we could tap into that. if we do, there could be good snowfall in areas of the palmer divide, hitting hard by that. they could be hit hard by that monday and tuesday. tuesday things will start to into the plains. we are looking at snow to country. if you have travel plans in the mountains this weekend, could be a tough time.

you heading to the airport and along pea boulevard. up in the high country, both hands on the wheel. we can count on our fingers how many days until the super bowl. we have a denver reporter in charlotte and he's in search of broncos fans. >> reporter: you can probably already tell michelle thomas may be the bravest person in both of the carolinas. >> i've never been afraid to be the only one wearing my bronco orange. >> reporter: she's not from denver but has been to more broncos games than more local. she picked the team as her favorite in 1983 and never looked back. her daughter even moved to the mile high city. >> it's like the broncos get in your blood. elway did get me there. but the fans, now that i've been to the stadium and been to the games, there's something
their fans. >> go cowboys. >> reporter: yes, she hears boos. >> not in this town. >> reporter: sometimes literally. >> boo! >> i have all the ammunition i need. >> reporter: it's tough to be a broncos fan here. a bar listed online listed as a safe haven said that was a lie. >> quite a few local fans here. seems they've gone into hiding since the panthers were paired up against the broncos. >> reporter: this fan only agreed to come forward if we kept him unanimous to hide from his coworkers. >> you could lose your job? >> yes, it's a possibility. but i believe in speaking out for the people. >> go broncos!

conversations on the 50-yard line? they don't exist anymore. no confirmation on that whatsoever. we are onto carolina. >> he hasn't said anything to me. i know he's enjoying the playoffs and enjoying this opportunity with the football team. i can't speak for him. he'll have to answer those questions. i know it's special to have him back in the huddle leading the way.

they only lost one game all season. they also understand even though manning is not what he used to be, he's
still formidable. >> i don't think anybody on this team is going to look past peyton manning, everything he's accomplished. if we were writing a storybook, that would probably be some guy we'd want to beat for the championship. to be the best, you have to beat the best: peyton is definitely one of those. there won't be anybody sleeping on him for sure. >> we don't care if it's his last game. he's played 18, 19 years. he's had enough. it's our time. >> you can see the super bowl here on cbs 4, 4:30 a week from sunday. let's take a peek outside because we have some weather challenges in colorado right now. take a look at the snow, already blowing around in the high country, i-70 near the vail rest area. look at how hard this is
