Starting tonight with Denver defending their Super Bowl title against the Panthers. I think Carolina pulls this one out. Denver has lost quite a bit on defense, but they should still be pretty solid. No Talib but their corners are still pretty good. Carolina, on the other hand, gets Stewart back (injured in the Super Bowl) as well as Kelvin Benjamin. On the other side of the ball, I'm not convinced that Trevor Semen (see what I did there?) is going to be the answer for Denver's QB woes. I think the Denver defense keeps it close until the end and then the Panthers pull away.
