New York, Sept 12 (THAINDIAN NEWS) At the Monday Night Football, four teams will open their account of the new season. The New England Patriots will travel to Miami where they will meet the Dolphins. The Patriots are among the favorites of the season and how they start their season will undoubtedly have a huge influence on the team and their pedigree.

In the other game on Monday night, the Denver Broncos will play against the Oakland Raiders. The game will be one to remember for one Broncos fan. 21-year-old Woody Roseland is a cancer patient and he will have his dream come true when he meets Tim Tebow ahead of the game on Monday.

The meeting was arranged by Tebow’s organization The Tim Tebow Foundation Wish 15 (W15H). Roseland has been diagnosed on five different occasions with cancer with the first diagnosis being made when he was 16 years. He is currently undergoing treatment and is expected to be in remission after that.

He told reporters from his hospital bed that, “I think it is such a refreshing change of pace to have a person like Tim Tebow, as a professional athlete, in your city. What an asset it is to have someone who is so selfless and such a positive force on and off the field.”
