NFL has just released the full regular season schedule for 2016 and no one is more excited than his team’s first game than Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton.
The first game of the upcoming season will be a rematch between Denver Broncos and the Panthers– the same teams that met in the last Super Bowl 50 last February– on Sept. 8, 2016.
Peyton Manning, who retired earlier this offseason, helped the Broncos beat the Panthers, 24-10 in the NFL championship game.
And now ahead of his upcoming rematch, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is looking for some revenge from Broncos’ Von Miller. In a latest offseason attack, Miller threw some shade at Newton when he posted an edited image on Instagram.
Miller then responded back by saying: “Hahaha water polo sack!!!”
The original picture is that of Newton playing water polo as part of his Nickelodeon show “All in with Cam”. The show premieres this season.
Cam Newton’s Instagram post comes after Von Miller’s recent emotional messageon Instagram.
Broncos executive vice-president of football operations John Elway is also quite upbeat about the rematch.
“We knew who we were going to play and now we know when we’re going to play them,” Elway said, FOX Sports reports. “It’s always exciting to take that next step and look at the 2016 season. With the schedule coming out, that’s kind of the first step. With the draft coming up in the next couple of weeks, we’re on to 2016.”
“It’s exciting for our players to compete on a national stage,” Panthers coach Ron Rivera added. “We have earned the right to be in the spotlight and we have to take advantage of it.”
Looks like the swords are already out for the Denver Broncos-Carolina Panthers rematch on the first day of the season.
