Perhaps the best moment of Super Bowl 50 for Denver cornerback Aqib Talib came after it was over.

He tried to run onto the set of the NFL Network’s live broadcast and fell on his butt after the Broncos’ 24-10 win over Carolina.

The first half, however, was flat-out brutal.

He drew an unsportsmanlike-conduct penalty for talking trash, later tackled Corey Brown by grabbing his facemask and throwing him to the ground. The Panthers scored a touchdown on the drive and Talib, the former Kansas star, was offsides on the extra-point attempt.

Talib’s favorability rating took a huge hit:
