Hello football fans! Welcome to the official start of the 2016 NFL season.
We start with a rematch of the Super Bowl, as the Carolina Panthers visit Denver to seek revenge against the Broncos.
The Panthers are back for this rematch, except for Josh Norman, who went to join the Washington Redskins in the NFC East. His team will host the Pittsburgh Steelers in the first of two Monday Night games.
Speaking of returning, the Los Angeles Rams return to the City of Angels. Before they have houseguests, they make the trek to Santa Clara to take on the San Francisco 49ers.
We’re also in a new era of quarterbacks, as barely proven arms take over high-profile jobs. Can Brock Osweiler right the ship in Houston? Will Sam Bradford reignite his college days with Adrian Peterson in Minnesota? Can Dak Prescott hold the fort in Dallas?
Perhaps the biggest question will be hinted at this Thursday night. Trevor Siemian will take the helm against Carolina. He hasn’t thrown a single pass in preseason.
Is he the next step for Denver after Peyton Manning’s retirement? Let’s see if Gary Kubiak’s plan pays off.
