That was then and now we get a clean slate as the both will be looking to start of 2K16 at 1-0 with extra rest coming having played three days ahead of week 1 which is this coming Sunday. Will the Panthers O" Line get the Secret Service out on #58 and send at least two grown man to block him? Is Broncos QB Trevor Siemian ready to do battle with the 1's for an entire game? Week 1 is here and let's get to the Vitals...
Its not all on QB Cameron Newton but it is on QB Cameron Newton. The Panthers must chip or send two bodies at Von Miller and contain DeMarcus Ware or we just need to put on Super Bowl 50 and watch that again minus Beyonce and the B-Hive at halftime.
What will WR Kelvin Benjamin do after missing all of 2K15 with that Torn ACL suffered in training camp last season? TE Greg Olsen is Cam's "go-to-dude' and the Broncos know that as SS TJ Ward among others will get that assignment to slow him down.
On "D" its #59 and #58 in Luke Kuechly and Thomas Davis along with that front led by Star Lotulelei and Kawaan Short trying to make life uncomfortable for Broncos starting QB Trevor Siemian. The Panthers Secondary has no Josh Norman and they will rely heavily on that front to create "Hurries" and Red Jersey Collections.
Broncos Keys to the Winner's Circle and the "Protecting the Throne":
QB Trevor Siemian is front and center and from what you hear and see he is ready as he will ever be. The "Orange Crush" Run Game and O-Line must protect him as well and the wide outs talking Manny "Go Go" Sanders of Team E10 and D-Thomas must make plays for him.
The "D" is stacked and they feed off of that underrated front led by NT Sylvester "Big Cat" Williams and those red jersey collectors in Miller and Ware. Can the Broncos contain Cam if he resorts back to what he should have done in the Big Bowl and that is run the Wilson Pigskin? If Cam is vintage Cam there is nothing the Broncos can do to stop him...real talk!
Winner: Panthers 27 Broncos 17 F
