Denver Broncos Full 2013 Schedule Revealed

The long wait is over. The NFL has released all 32 schedules for the 2013 season. We’ve known who the Denver Broncos will face and where they will be playing each game for months, but now we know when they will be playing those games.

Things kickoff for the Broncos (and the rest of the league) when the NFL converges on Denver September 5 for a rematch of the 2012 AFC divisional playoff game. That’s right! The Baltimore Ravens head to Denver in week one. It will be like Elvis (Dumervil) never left the building. Because of a scheduling conflict with the Baltimore Orioles, the defending Super Bowl champions will be forced to open their season on the road, which is a first since 2003.

The Broncos are scheduled for five primetime games, which is the most allowed for any one team. They also had five primetime games in 2012. Here’s the full schedule courtesy of DenverBroncos.com:

Games of note include the Manning Bowl when Peyton and Eli play at the Meadowlands in week 2. Peyton will also get to head back to the house that he built when the Broncos take on the Indianapolis Colts on October 20. Forget the Peyton Manning v. Tom Brady rivalry for a moment. Wes Welker will be going back to New England to visit his former team on November 24. Of course, there’s also Mike Shanahan’s return to Denver as the head coach of the Washington Redskins on October 27.

This is one of the most exciting regular seasons that I can remember. The Broncos have the opportunity to win the very first NFL game of the season, and with hard work and solid play, they have the chance to win the very last game of the NFL season as well.
