The NFL’s season opening game was not short on drama Thursday night with Carolina’s Graham Gano missing a 50 yard field goal in the final minute to give Denver a 21-20 win. Hugh said “That defense got shredded a little bit last night, Carolina had their opportunities even though they lost.” Von Miller’s defense held Cam Newton to under 200 yards passing, CJ Anderson had a rushing and a receiving touchdown for the Broncos and Trevor Siemian had 178 passing yards with a touchdown and two interceptions.

Meanwhile the Falcons are closing in on their season opener Sunday against the Bucs. Julio Jones and Dwight Freeney both fully participated in practice Thursday they’re expected to play Sunday, Jonathan Babineaux missed practice for a non-injury reason.
