If they're still doing the double header on Monday nights, then this sucks for me on the east coast! I imagine we'd be the late game.

A little OT- Rumblings out of SD are that Franklin could become a cap casualty if the Sparklers land another G in the draft. If true, would you want him back to play LG?

Local radio host here in NY announced the entire Giants schedule (he didn't have the Jets yet, but we play them too). Sounds like Giants at Broncos on SNF week 6, 10/15.

MHR links to a Bills source saying Broncos at Bills week 3, 9/24. Would be good, if true. Better than going there in December.

Raiders/Chargers seems to be the rumor for week 17, meaning we would play the Chiefs that week (the Sunday of which is NYE). Not sure whether home or away yet though.

If this is true, I plan on going to this game. I'll live 6 hours from Buffalo this year and this is my birthday weekend.

First post updated - schedule is official. I kind of hate it - way too many home games early leads to three straight road games, including at KC on Monday and then at Philly for the early east coast game the next Sunday. Bye in week 5 - ugh!

We don't know dates and times for those yet - they always come later at some random time.

I like that the Buffalo trip is early, I like that we have a bunch of primetime games, including three at home. Last year, all divisional road games were in primetime, and I hated that. I like the early start against the Redskins on Christmas Eve - it'll be over before we have to leave for my wife's family, which saves me a big fight. I like being home week 17 against KC - that game could be huge.

I hate the late MNF game week one (for me, that means if I stay up, it'll end around 1:30 on a weeknight. Awful). I hate crowding all the home games early - it leaves us a ten week stretch where we play seven road games. I loathe the week five bye.

Forget 9-7. Forget no playoffs.

“That’s a thing of the past,” safety T.J. Ward said. “It’s a new year.”

But it won’t be an easy one.

The Broncos’ road back to the playoffs will be bumpy — the bumpiest in the league with a .578 opponent win percentage — and it will begin and end in Denver. It will include five primetime matchups (including two on Monday Night against divisional rivals); a Week 2 battle with the Cowboys in Denver; a Thursday night stop in Indianapolis, a return to Miami for Vance Joseph; a meeting with another Manning and another Brandon Marshall at home; a must-see game against Tom Brady and the Patriots at Mile High again; and finally, a sure-to-be thriller against the Chiefs at home to close it out.

You bet we will get another game flexed to Sunday Night since we are such ratings attractions. Maybe the Miami game if the Fins are playing well (at least they dumped their defensive coordinator so they'll keep the scores down).

Tough schedule, especially with the east coast traveling and early bye, but it is what it is. If the BRONCOS can make the playoffs off this schedule, they'll definitely deserve it and be hardened.

If it is the Monday or the Sunday (late) game, i iusually go straight to work after the game.

The Broncos will travel 9,410 miles to get to their 8 reg.-season games this year -- the most since 2010, which included a trip to London.

The last time the Broncos traveled more miles without leaving the country was in 2008 (9,432 miles -- 22 more than this year).

I am not sure - only if i am back in the UK at that time, i wont travel back just for the game.

I am really trying to work out how i can get back across to the States, but the only games that are convenient are some of the east coast games - maybe the bills, maybe the dolphins.

I need to be clever with my money as well because i have so much other stuff planned this year.

It is highly likely that my next visit to America will be in 2018 (unless the Broncos are in London that year!!!)
