The Carolina Panthers (0-0) will travel to face the Denver Broncos (0-0).
Can you smell that? Football is back, baby! We are treated to a Super Bowl rematch for our first game of the season and it should be a good one.
The Panthers are looking for revenge after losing in the Super Bowl and are favorites to win the game by 3-points. Reigning MVP Cam Newton and the offense will try to conjure up some magic against the fantastically deep Broncos defensive roster.
Patriots fans should be openly rooting for the Panthers to win because the Broncos look to be one of the final teams standing the AFC, even with their questions at quarterback. In fact, Patriots fans should be rooting against the Broncos every single game this season.
