Ravens @ Broncos: 2013 NFL Season Kickoff Open Thread

New, comments

Ladies and gentlemen, it's here! Real NFL football.

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The start of the 2013 NFL regular season is ready to go. The Super Bowl champions, the Baltimore Ravens, travel to face the Denver Broncos. It's not quite Cowboys football yet, but it is real NFL football. Let the good times roll!

This is a revenge game for the Broncos, who somehow lost to the Ravens in the playoffs last year. Remember this:

Riding an 11-game winning streak and ahead by seven late in the fourth quarter, Denver appeared headed to the AFC championship game until safety Rahim Moore blew coverage and Baltimore's Joe Flacco connected with Jacoby Jones for a 70-yard touchdown pass with 31 seconds left, forcing overtime and stunning the Broncos. The Ravens went on to a 38-35 double-OT victory that propelled them to a 28-13 win at New England the next week, and they went on to beat San Francisco 34-31 to claim their first Super Bowl title since 2000.

The Broncos will be out for blood, should be fun to watch.

This is an open thread for game chat.
