NFL: Defending champs rally to win Super Bowl rematch


09-09-2016 16:00 BJT

To football of another kind, and the opening night of the NFL season, which kicked-off with a rematch of last year's title game.

In February, the Denver Broncos upset the heavily favoured Carolina Panthers to win their third Super Bowl crown. They won that title with Peyton Manning at quarterback, but the Sherriff retired in the off-season, which meant little known Trevor Siemian would take the reins of the champs in this rematch.

Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall would kneel during the national anthem, showing solidarity to Colin Kaepernick who is raising awareness to minorities in the U-S.

Once the game got going, Cam Newton would lead his team to a 17-7 lead, rushing for one touchdown.

But C-J Anderson would score twice for the Broncos to put them ahead, one of his scores coming off Denver intercepted Newton.

But last year's MVP would lead his team down the field, and had a chance to grab victory in the final seconds, only to see Graham Gano miss a 50-yard field goal with four seconds to go, as Denver comes back to beat Carolina 21-20 in the NFL season opener.
