The NFL will celebrate the arrival of the 2013 regular season featuring a high-profile game between the Super Bowl Champion Baltimore Ravens and Denver Broncos. And despite the Super Bowl Champions traditionally hosting the the season opener, the Ravens will play the Broncos in Denver, but the city of Baltimore will celebrate with concerts and other events that will be infrequently televised.
This will be the tenth meeting between the Broncos and Ravens, with Baltimore holding a 5-4 edge. Denver beat the Broncos in the regular season on Dec. 16, 2012 when running back Knowshon Moreno rushed for 115 yards rushing and a touchdown.
Thursday, September 5, 2013 at 8:40 p.m. EDT
