2013 NFL Season Opening Game:
Baltimore Ravens vs. Denver BroncosSeptember 03, 2013 by Marc Jerbs

On Thursday, the 2013 NFL season starts with the defending SuperBowl champion Baltimore Ravens facing the Denver Broncos. Game time is set at 8:30PM ET and will be held in the Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

The Baltimore Ravens officially begin their quest for a back-to-back SuperBowl title with the Denver Broncos. Last season, the Ravens hold off the Broncos in the AFC Championship game to advance to the SuperBowl.

Denver would like to move on with their heartbreaking loss last season. They could let it heal faster if they beat the Baltimore on Thursday night. QB Peyton Manning will be up for his 2nd season for Denver and the fans expect him to lead the Broncos deep into the season.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed the Denver Broncos as an 8-point favorite to beat the Baltimore Ravens on the opening game of the 2013 NFL season.
