Broncos complete 2022 schedule officially released
The NFL has released its full schedule for the 2022 season and we can now take a look at when the Denver Broncos will face each opponent.
The 2022 season will mark a key year in the storied history of the Broncos. In addition to adding Russell Wilson as the team’s new quarterback, the Broncos will be looking to snap a drought of missing the playoffs that dates back six seasons.
On top of that, the team is expected to soon be under new ownership.
With Wilson at quarterback and considering the price the Broncos paid to get him, expectations are going to be sky-high. Recently, I looked at a few things that could make the 2022 schedule favorable for the Broncos and for the most part, it seems to have fallen that way.
With that said, here is your first look at the team’s schedule for the 2022 season.
Denver Broncos 2022 schedule
Week 1: at Seattle Seahawks (Monday Night Football)
Week 2: vs. Houston Texans
Week 3: vs. San Francisco 49ers (Sunday Night Football)
Week 4: at Las Vegas Raiders
Week 5: vs. Indianapolis Colts (Thursday Night Football)
Week 6: at Los Angeles Chargers (Monday Night Football)
Week 7: vs. New York Jets
Week 8: at Jacksonville Jaguars (in London)
Week 9: BYE
Week 10: at Tennessee Titans
Week 11: vs. Las Vegas Raiders
Week 12: vs. Carolina Panthers
Week 13: vs. Baltimore Ravens
Week 14: vs. Kansas City Chiefs (Sunday Night Football)
Week 15: vs. Arizona Cardinals
Week 16: at Los Angeles Rams (Christmas Day)
Week 17: at Kansas City Chiefs
Week 18: vs. Los Angeles Chargers
As you can see, the Broncos were given five primetime television games, which is tied for the most in the league. Bringing a guy like Wilson over sure changes things, much like it did back in 2012 when the Broncos signed Peyton Manning.
The Broncos will also have to like the way the schedule starts, with only one AFC West opponent in the first five weeks. They also don’t face Kansas City until December.
And if you want to circle a game on your calendar, start with Week 1 on September 12. The Broncos will head to Seattle where Wilson will battle his former team and at least as of right now, it seems that Drew Lock could be the Seahawks’ starting quarterback.
