The NFL season is upon us as the Super Bowl Champions the Denver Broncos open up in a rematch with the Carolina Panthers. The opening game will kick off at 8:30pm and can be seen on ABC. The Denver Broncos have a lot of questions to answer while bringing in a new quarterback in the retiring of Peyton Manning. The Panthers defense and offense is solid and their quarterback Cam Newtom will lead them into the 2016-2017 season.
