The Baltimore Ravens will take on the Denver Broncos on Thursday night as the NFL 2013 season gets underway with a mouth-watering match up between Peyton Manning and Joe Flacco.
The game will start at 8.30 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream via the link provided below.
The Ravens will commence their defense of their Super Bowl crown against a team that will be out vying for revenge.
Both teams will remember last year's postseason game as the Broncos were just seconds away from making the AFC Championship Game when Ravens receiver Jacoby Jones sent the game to overtime with a last minute touchdown reception.
However, for tonight's game Elvis Dumervil is now a Raven. He was of course with the Broncos for the first eight years of his career but he will now be up against his former home team.
Meanwhile, Peyton Manning is still trying to win that second ring and will have been bitterly disappointed at the way last season ended.
However, the Broncos have a very capable side and have the weapons to certainly compete with anyone in the NFL when they are on top of their form. Wes Welker was signed this off-season, and he will give them another top flight wide receiver.
Joe Flacco will be hoping that the Ravens can replicate their win against the Broncos in the postseason last year. He will of course remember his pass in the AFC Divisional Playoff game to Jacoby Jones.
