Broncos schedule 2017

September

Chargers, Cowboys, at Bills

The Chargers' ability to give the Broncos fits in 2016 means it's safe to assume their season-opening matchup is far from an easy win for Denver. It also will cost the Broncos at least day of preparation for their Week 2 showdown against the Cowboys. A cross-country trip to Buffalo isn't exactly a comfortable way to end the first month of the season.

October

Raiders, BYE, Giants, at Chargers, at Chiefs

Denver's annual home game against Oakland comes early in the season this year, a week before a bye the Broncos probably wish would have been scheduled later in the season. The break in the schedule at least will give the Broncos plenty of time to prepare for a primetime, home showdown against the Giants before they close the month on the road against the division-rival Chargers and Chiefs.

Raiders schedule 2017: Oakland's playoff road isn't pretty, including rough end

  Raiders schedule 2017: Oakland's playoff road isn't pretty, including rough end The Raiders' 2017 schedule will be a good litmus test for how much they have improved from their breakout 2016 regular season. Getting back to the playoffs won't be easy; Oakland's opponents carry over a combined .564 winning percentage from last season, including their foes in the stacked AFC West and NFC East.From wire to wire, there's no breathing room or real gimme games for Oakland in 2017. One of the NFL's most talented young teams will need to grow up faster, but with Derek Carr leading the way, that certainly can happen by the Bay.

DENVER (CBS4) – The complete NFL schedule has been released, and the Denver Broncos now know the dates and times of what has determined to be the hardest schedule After a 2016 season in which the Broncos came close but failed to make the playoffs for the first time in six years, the

November

at Eagles, Patriots, Bengals, at Raiders

Denver's trip to Philadelphia is particularly tough on a short week after a Monday night game in Kansas City. The Broncos won't overlook the Eagles, but who could blame them if they did? The Patriots lurk in a Week 10 Sunday night matchup made for TV. The second Raiders game of the season follows a winnable home game against the Bengals.

December

at Dolphins, Jets, at Colts, at Redskins, Chiefs

While the Dolphins and Jets games to open December seem winnable, they come before a short week and a Thursday-night game in Indianapolis. If Andrew Luck is healthy late in the season, that game might come with AFC playoff implications. The Broncos finish off their NFC East slate with their last road game of the season, in Washington for an early kickoff. If things go well for Denver in 2017, its season finale against Kansas City could be for the division.

Broncos schedule 2017, record prediction: 9-7

Divisional matchups against the NFC East and AFC East Patriots, known long before the Broncos' 2017 schedule was released, meant Denver would be tested again this season. Its actual schedule presents tough game after tough game, with contending opponents spread out throughout the calendar.

It'll be same song, different verse for the Broncos in 2017; they'll just have to hope a record near .500 this season will be enough to get them back into the playoffs. With its own division as tough as ever and given the rise of other teams in the AFC, Denver will need to pull off some relative upsets in order to return to glory in the conference.

As Mr. Irrelevant, Chad Kelly gets chance to delete troubled history with Broncos .
Chad Kelly spent the entire 2017 NFL Draft as Mr. Enigma, and on Saturday was one selection away from reprising that role as an undrafted free agent. Then, John Elway and the Denver Broncos — the quarterback-challenged Denver Broncos — made him Mr. Irrelevant.It would be hard for anyone else from this quarterback class to match the journey Kelly has been on throughout draft season. The journey only gets even more bizarre from here. The Ole Miss quarterback with the proverbial checkered past will be the center of attention in the traditional Mr. Irrelevant festivities in Newport Beach, Calif.
