The Broncos were first to touch down in California.

With a week before Super Bowl 50 the Broncos landed at Mineta San Jose International Airport around 3 p.m. PT

The team tweeted out a picture just before taking off from Denver.

C.J. Anderson, who is from the Bay Area, tweeted out his excitement as the team landed in California:

NFL Media's Jeff Darlington reported that Peyton Manning chose to sit in the back of the cabin at seat 44I. Broncos coach Gary Kubiak, as most coaches do, parked himself at the front of the plane at seat 1K.

The Panthers landed in San Jose around 4 p.m. PT.

The team was sent off by hundreds of fans who lined up on the street to wish them well.

So far the Panthers win the style award. Jonathan Stewart and Cam Newton posted a picture shortly before the team left Carolina.

Newton's Versace Yellow Barocco Zebraprint pants instantly became a hit on social media and are reportedly already sold out. Sorry everybody.

Ron Rivera and company landed in the Bay Area roughly an hour after their Super Bowl counterparts.

Make sure to watch Super Bowl Opening Night live Monday on NFL Network at 8 p.m. ET.
