The Baltimore Ravens might be the defending Superbowl Champions but the side to take on the Denver Broncos in the first game of the NFL season will be a far cry from the on in the last game in 2012-13.
As many as eight starters from the Ravens winning team have either retired or moved on to other club in what will be a big test for the side.
Further Hall-of-Fame middle linebacker Ray Lewis hung up his cleats, safety star Ed Reed moved to the Houston Texans, Anquan Boldin was traded to San Francisco.
Added into the mix the injury to tight end Dennis Pitta and the Ravens have got their work cut out for them not just against Denver but in the first quarter of the season.
Denver’s defensive depth will be tested with Von Miller out for the first six weeks due to suspension while cornerback Champ Bailey is still struggling to overcome an ankle injury.
It will be with the ball where most NFL fans will be closely looking at the Broncos as star quarterback Peyton Manning will look to link up with new wide receiver Wes Welker.
Ravens running back Ray Rice will have a big job in the first game as he looks to keep the chains moving and Manning on the bench.
Joe Flacco will need to step up and show the team the players losses in their off-season will not have as big an impact as some believe and that his arm can again take them back to the Vince Lombardi trophy.
Denver has all of the tools to make between 30-40 points in most games this season, but with their defence weaker through the first month of the season, can they stop the Ravens and their opponent’s scoring even more?
