2016 NFL Season Opener: Panthers @ Broncos [Open Thread]

New, comments

Last year, the Carolina Panthers were one win away from hoisting the first Lombardi trophy in franchise history. They were denied by the Denver Broncos in a stinging 24-10 loss. Tonight in the 2016 NFL season opener, Carolina hopes for a little bit of revenge against Denver.
