The NFL season is just around the corner. In anticipation of the season-opener, the fine folks at Sports Illustrated released the four regional covers for the annual NFL preview.
The Carolina Panthers, Pittsburgh Steelers, Arizona Cardinals and Denver Broncos are the teams featured.
Conveniently enough, the teams are also among the favorites to contend for a championship this season thanks to the leadership of their star players and SI cover athletes Cam Newton, Antonio Brown, Larry Fitzgerald and Von Miller.
Check out all four covers below:
Let’s hope the SI cover curse takes a year off for the sake of the players.
