Are you ready for some football? Tonight is the beginning of the 2013 NFL season headlined by the Denver Broncos hosting the defending Super Bowl champs. The Baltimore Ravens are out to prove that despite coming into the season after replacing several prominent names from their Super Bowl winning team, that they’re still the champs and the team to beat this year. The Ravens defeated Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos in a double ot thriller in the divisional round last season. Elvis Dumervil who suited up for the Broncos for the past six seasons is now a part of the Ravens defensive unit. This game is sure to be a great start to the season.
All it took was a fourth and sixth rounder for the New York Jets to land Tim Tebow after the Denver Broncos essentially won the lottery when Peyton Manning signed earlier this week. Both the Jets and the Jaguars were in the running for Tebow once an issue in his contracted halted the trade for a few hours. The Tebow craze will now be in the big New York market. This will add an interesting dynamic to the season, and we’ll see how and if Mark Sanchez and the rest of the locker room responds to the phenomenon that surrounds Tim Tebow. I for one will be tuning in to see how Tebow is incorporated into the offense.
