The 22nd season of Dancing with the Stars premiered on Monday night with a roster heavy on current and former NFL stars, with Von Miller, Antonio Brown and Doug Flutie competing.

The athletes hit the floor with their partners in the quest to win the Mirror Ball Trophy, with Super Bowl MVP Miller wearing Broncos colors while dancing to Flo Rida’s “My House.”

Watch: Klay Thompson is apparently a huge Dez Bryant fan

Brown and partner Sharne Burgessi danced a quickstep in black and gold to start off the competition.

Flutie called back to his Boston College days with a maroon and gold ensemble while dancing to “Sweet Caroline.”

Miller and Brown are tied in the standings with each scoring a 21 from the judges panel, while Flutie narrowly avoided the lowest score, receiving a 15 from the experts, just two points better than broadcaster Geraldo Rivera. The first elimination will occur next Monday after the contestants’ second performances.
