September 5, 2013 - NFL Season Opener - Ravens at Broncos
There were a lot of great storylines to follow for this NFL season opener on September 5, Thursday night, at Sports Authority Field in Denver. Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens, opening their season on the road? A low temperature of -10 degrees F on January 12, and a high temp of 97 degrees F on September 5 (both dates featured the Ravens visiting the Broncos)? A Giant picture of Joe Flacco hung on the side of the stadium? A relatively even first half? Then, Peyton Manning would go all signature Peyton Manning and throw the first 7-touchdown game since 1969, throwing for 462 yards in the process. For me, it was a great honor to cover and I was lucky when a majority of the scoring happened on my corner of the field. Photos copyright Getty Images 2013.
