Broncos Ravens How-to-Watch 2015: Online streaming, TV schedule, game time and more

Game time! Ffffiiiinnnaalllyy!! The 2015 Denver Broncos season kicks off on Sunday, September 13, 2015 at 2:25 p.m. Mile High time against the Baltimore Ravens on CBS. It's Peyton Manning vs. Joe Flacco again as Gary Kubiak takes on his former team. Here's how to watch the game.

The last time the Denver Broncos opened a regular season against the Baltimore Ravens, records were broken. Defenses were smashed (Baltimore defenses, that is). Peyton Manning threw seven touchdowns, kicking off a 2013 campaign of shattering NFL records all year long via an offense that featured a "real-life fantasy football" quartet of Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker, Wes Welker, and Julius Thomas.

This offense hardly looks like that offense. In two years, all but D. Thomas have left the Broncos, and Peyton is now throwing to a less expensive contingent of Emmanuel Sanders, Jordan Norwood, and Owen Daniels. Even more significant is the change in scheme - out goes Adam Gase, in comes Kubiak (and Rick Dennison), purveyors of old-school running-the-football methodologies mixed with newish-school zone blocking schemes mixed with downfield passing. How will Peyton's hurry-up pass-happy offense blend with Kubiak's tough-it-out running game?

We're finally about to find out.

Peyton Manning and the Broncos will take on Joe Flacco and the Ravens at Sports Authority Field at Mile High to kick off the 2015 season. Here's how to watch the game.

Injury Report

The biggest news regarding Broncos' starters isn't injury-related; it's suspension-related. Derek Wolfe and T.J. Ward will both miss Week 1 with respective suspensions. Otherwise, the Broncos are relatively healthy to start the year.

Quotable

"I'm looking forward to Sunday and looking forward to seeing how we're going to perform," Manning said this week. "We've got some new guys playing and we've got some new things that we're doing. [I am] excited to see how we're going to do. I think I've said all along, the key for us is to improve throughout the season, throughout the course of a game. Baltimore is an excellent defense. Are you going to dominate all four quarters? I don't know if anybody's ever done that against Baltimore. Hopefully you can win enough plays and be efficient enough where you can do well enough to win the football game. I think this game can be a lot like our season—just keep improving, being sound in the things that we're doing and trying to be on the same page."
