Broncos RB C.J. Anderson: 'There's no pressure on us'

With the vast majority of the NFL cognoscenti predicting a Carolina Panthers romp in Super Bowl 50, the Denver Broncos aren't feeling the burden of expectations.

"We just have to go out there and play football," running back C.J. Anderson said, via the Denver Post. "There's no pressure on us. There's nobody picking us. There's nobody picking our 39-year-old quarterback to go play well."

Each Super Bowl team has played the underdog card this week. The Broncos however, have a more right to the feel disrespected.

"Yeah, we're used to it now," wide receiver Demaryius Thomas added. "I think the past two weeks we've been underdogs and we stepped up to the plate and we were able to come out with the win. We don't really care what the papers or whatever they say about being underdogs. We're going to go out and do our jobs."

While many might be picking the Panthers to win, it's not as if everyone believes the Broncos -- who boast the NFL's No. 1 defense and a pass rush that can discombobulate even an MVP -- are ground up kitten food.

Around The NFL's Marc Sessler eloquently and with much aplomb broke down why the Broncos will win Sunday's Super Bowl. Perhaps someone will pass it on to the underdog players.
