New, comments

While the Packers wait until Sunday to begin their 2016 schedule, the NFL starts tonight with a rematch of the last Super Bowl.

NFL: Super Bowl 50-Carolina Panthers vs Denver Broncos Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Tonight, the NFL finally gets its regular season schedule underway. After six weeks of training camps and preseason, it is time to begin the long, grueling road to Super Bowl LI, and we kick it off with a repeat of the most recent championship game.

However, the Denver Broncos - the victors in Super Bowl 50 - have lost some significant pieces in the offseason, including quarterback Peyton Manning (retired) and defensive tackle Malik Jackson (signed with Jacksonville in free agency). How Trevor Siemian plays in Manning’s stead will go a long way to deciding the result of this game, and he faces a tough Panthers defense this evening.

Here’s how to tune in, and let this serve as your discussion thread for this evening’s game.
