they didn't have the finish last year's did but it had a story book ending. manning and broncos defeated the panthers by 24-10 and now peyton manning has a chance to ride off into theset on top. that is. and let's look because manning taking the field for what could be the final rodeo but just like in the ncf the defense did damage. vaughn miller with the big strip sack. league mvp newton. jackson recovers and puts denver up 10-0. miller is stripped again. brofngos recovered that too -- broncos recovered that too. that set up a cj anderson touchdown. the game mvp with 2 1/2 sacks and denver had 7 sacks on the night. and after the anderson touchdown run manning threw for two point conversion to put them up 1. broncos won 24-10 and peyton went to second lombardi trophy after the game he still wouldn't say if he is

5:15 am
in most spots so the monday storm impact in terms of traveling and commuting it's a low to moderate impact because the snow is going to be starting to advance in from south to north. it's on the cape right now and islands. and then after that, it's a high impact right on through the afternoon and evening. and because the snow intensity is going to be one to two inches. because conditions will deteriorate heading throughout the course of the afternoon. doppler radar 32 in boston. temperatures have been dropping all morning. that trend is going to continue as well. 36 on the vineyard with areas of light snow and that extends back up to chatham and seeing light snow here as well extending back up towards eastham and nantucket light snow. so we are not concerned with mixing. you see the green south of the island temperatures on the cape and eyeland will be dropping over the next several hours. so hour by hour between now and mid to late morning the snow will continue to advance over the cape and watch what happens. it fills in here between late morning and midday.
5:16 am
in a couple spots and steadier snow moves in rapidly. 20s for most of us and including boston so the consistency of the snow is different than last storm on friday. it will be a lighter fluffier consistency for most of us. the exception the cape and islands. 1 p.m. notice the band of moderate to heavy snow blizzard conditions at. at the coast. gusts over 40 miles per hour now. through the evening, light to moderate snow continues and we will gradually taper look at midnight tonight. this is an all day event once it starts going early tomorrow morning the bulk of the steady snow is well to the north. look what happens, we get additional pockets of light snow and snow showers at coastline so that may reslicken roads in spot and bring an additional coating or an inch or two at the coast after today.

5:36 am
bowl 50 but a -- by a score of 24-10. as for manning he is taking a field for what could be the phenyl rodeo. but denver's defense did the damage. vaughn mill wert strip stack of cam newton jackson recoughed for a touchdown to put denver up 10-0 like that late in the 4th, newton is stripped again. broncos recovered that one too. and that set up a cj anderson touchdown run to clinch it. miller was game mvp and denver had 7 sacks on the night. and anthony anderson touchdown run. manning threw for the two point conversion poo put -- to put denver up. broncos win 24-10 and peyton wins the second lombardi trophy but won't say if he is going to retire. i asked talib about the emotional pregame speech he gave. >> he he talked to the team half the night he got choked up didn't he. >> he did.
