Back in February, Peyton Manning led the Broncos against the red-hot Panthers to a Super Bowl victory. The game was decided not by Manning’s arm but the Denver defense that shut down what had been up until that point an unstoppable Panthers offense led by Cam Newton.
A few months can make all the difference in the world and when we watch the Broncos vs Panthers live streaming or on TV tonight, it’s the visiting team that is favored to win. Newton is back with wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin, who missed all of last season with a torn ACL, as a new target. Cornerback Josh Norman is off to the Redskins but that may not matter.
Update: The Panthers lead the Broncos 17-7 at the half. Cam Newton is heating up while the Broncos defense is starting to show fatigue.
Manning retired from the NFL following Super Bowl 50 and his protege backup, Brock Osweiler, took off for Houston. Trevor Siemian emerged as the most viable starter in training camp so Paxton Lynch, who Denver traded up to acquire in the most recent NFL Draft, is the current backup.
The start time for tonight’s Carolina vs Denver football game is 8:30 pm EST / 5:30 pm PST. Tune into the NBC Sports TV channel or NFL Network to watch on the big screen, or catch the live stream on NBC Sports Live Extra.
