Now that the schedule has been released for the 2021 NFL season, we know the who, when and where when it comes to who the Denver Broncos will be matched up against this coming year.
For the first time in NFL history, teams will play a 17-game regular-season schedule which means that with bye weeks, the regular season will actually last 18 weeks.
It has been noted that the Broncos will play in just one primetime game this coming season, but that may not necessarily be a bad thing. It does mean that the Broncos won’t play a game on Monday Night Football for the first time in 29 years, however.
When you got your first look at the schedule, which games jumped out to you first?
We know that six of the games will take place against members of the AFC West and the Broncos will be trying to end a long losing streak against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Because there is a 17th game on the schedule, the Broncos will also see the Detroit Lions for the second time in three years.
However, none of those games are really all that intriguing, outside of the fact that most of them will renew long-standing rivalries. The following three games do offer some intrigue and should be games that draw some extra attention from fans.
