Are you ready for some football?
We hope you are, because the 2016 season finally kicks off Thursday night with a Super Bowl 50 rematch between the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos in the NFL Kickoff game.
There will be one very noticeable difference when the two teams take the field in Denver, as Trevor Siemian — not Peyton Manning — will be under center for the defending champions after the the five-time MVP retired. Unfortunately for Siemian, his first NFL start comes against Luke Kuechly and the Panthers’ dominant defense.
But defending NFL MVP Cam Newton has his own tough matchup against Von Miller and the Broncos’ defense, too.
