from colorado's sports leader here's drew soicher. >> hi, everybody. broncos linebacker von miller
5:24 pm
want different? what if we want the exact same von? miller only played a few snaps in the entire preseason, but that was more than enough to see he's still the most dominant player on the best defense in the nfl. however, the super bowl mvp said you might notice something different about him when the carolina panthers come to town thursday. >> just a different type of fun. it's just a different focus than what i had last year. my role ha from what it was last y accountable to my teammates and coaching stuff. i'm not dropping everything, but my focus is on carolina. >> broncos are listed as three- point underdogs. >> what? >> we're live. 9news broncos insider mike klis is at team headquarters. let's play klis and tell. got to be the first time the defending super bowl champs aren't favored opening the season at home. how do you figure? >> reporter: well, it's all

mvp, against trevor siemian, an unknown. the oddsmakers don't know what to make of trevor siemian. the broncos opened as the favorites and really all this changed since then was that mark sanchez was struggling and might get beat out and that's when the line changed from the broncos being a favorite to three-point underdog. remember again last year peyton manning fading, cam newton a great year. the panthers were favored. in 2013 the broncos were seahawks. defense is never the reason to be favored. it's always about the quarterback and the offense. >> seems like the nfl always tries to kick off the season with a super bowl rematch, but it hasn't happened in 46 years. >> reporter: yeah. and i'm proud to say th i watched that game 46 years ago, the minnesota vikings did beat the kansas city chiefs to
5:26 pm
look at the broncos schedule, it's kind of how it fell. they always rotate divisions of the opposite conference who you can play. really the only other choice would have been houston and brock osweiler, but that would have been more about what the broncos lost, not what the broncos won which was super bowl 50. >> good point. maybe that's why the broncos are underdogs because the vikings won that rematch 46 years ago. thanks, mike. the san francisco giants intentionally walked n carlos gonzalez today.
