Carolina destroys Denver by two points for Carolina for every one by Denver; while those numbers do not reflect the scale of the Super Bowl win, they do demonstrate the food drive win.

"The Carolina Panthers may have lost Sunday to the Denver Broncos, but Charlotte took home the bacon (and beans) thanks to a wager over whether Denver or Charlotte could collect the most food for charity by the end of Super Bowl 50.

"Final score: Carolinas 636,891 food items, Denver 360,664.

"In addition, 177,000 pounds of potatoes were donated for the cause, most through the Society of St. Andrew’s North Carolina Gleaning Network."--Mark Price, the Charlotte Observer
