The Denver Broncos’ 2013 preseason schedule has been announced. The action begins the week of August 8 when the Broncos play the San Francisco 49ers in the Bay Area. Next, the Broncos will travel to face the Seattle Seahawks. Then, the team is home against the St. Louis Rams and the Arizona Cardinals.
Week 1: at San Francisco 49ers — Aug. 8-11 (TBD)
Week 2: at Seattle Seahawks — Aug. 15-19 (TBD)
Week 3: vs. St. Louis Rams — Saturday, Aug. 24, 6 p.m. MDT (Nationally televised on CBS)
Week 4: vs. Arizona Cardinals — Aug. 29 or 30
The NFC West is now a very respectable division, so it will be nice for the Broncos to have some formidable opponents before the regular season kicks off. What’s even better is they play the 49ers and Seahawks when the starters will see most of the action.
This is the 16th straight season that the Broncos have opened preseason play on the road.
San Francisco is Denver’s most common preseason opponent, with this year’s matchup representing the 35th between the two clubs. Arizona is Denver’s second-most common preseason opponent, and the Broncos met the Seahawks as well in the 2011 and 2012 preseasons. This year marks the ninth preseason meeting between the Broncos and Rams — the first since 1998. – DenverBroncos.com
