Open Thread: Baltimore Ravens at Denver Broncos

Patrick Smith

The Denver Broncos welcome the Baltimore Ravens in the first game of the 2013 NFL regular season. Chat along while watching the game here!

The NFL regular season is finally, mercifully, here once again. Crack a beer, open up a bag of tortilla chips and attack the guacamole with vigor! The game starts at 5:30pm PDT tonight on the NBC.

Most people will be interested to see if the defending Super Bowl Champion Baltimore Ravens can match up with a playoff contender after losing the likes of Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, Anquan Boldin and Dennis Pitta. I will be more interested in seeing how the Denver Broncos perform without Von Miller or Elvis Dumervil (and I think Champ Bailey may also be out), and I'll have my eye on former San Diego Chargers Louis Vasquez, Shaun Phillips and Quentin Jammer.

It's a small thing, but it'd be nice if the Chargers weren't trailing the Broncos by a half game after tonight's matchup. Go Ravens!
