Panthers, Steelers, Broncos, Cardinals on Sports Illustrated's NFL preview cover

Tuesday August 23rd, 2016

The Carolina Panthers, Pittsburgh Steelers, Arizona Cardinals and Denver Broncos are featured on the four regional covers of Sports Illustrated's NFL preview issue.

Quarterback Cam Newton represents the Panthers on the Carolina cover, accompanied by a feature by SI's Greg Bishop on Newton's exuberant personality and the effect a crushing Super Bowl loss has (not) had on it. 

Bishop also details the wild off-season Broncos linebacker Von Miller had in a profile that describes his love for chickens, Kobe Bryant, designer shoes and the word "dope."

SI's Greg Bedard previews the promising seasons for the Cardinals and Steelers in two scouting reports among the 32 included in the magazine, which also reveals SI's pick to win Super Bowl LI: the Cardinals over the Steelers, 40–37.

The four covers will be delivered to the following locations:

Panthers: Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, North Carolina. South Carolina

Broncos: Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan
