NOTES ON THE BRONCOS' 2009 REGULAR-SEASON SCHEDULE

 * - The Broncos begin their season on the road for a club-record fifth year in a row at Cincinnati on Sunday, Sept. 13. The Bengals are Denver's most common opponent in season openers with the Broncos posting a 5-2 record in those contests. Denver last faced Cincinnati in its season opener on Sept. 7, 2003, when it earned a 30-10 road victory.

* - The Broncos open their divisional slate against the Raiders for the third year in a row on Sunday, Sept. 27, in Oakland. The Raiders are Denver's only AFC West opponent in its first five games of the season. The second half of Denver's schedule features four divisional matchups in its final seven games, including three home AFC West contests.

* - Denver hosts New England on Sunday, Oct. 11, when Head Coach Josh McDaniels will face his former team for the first time. McDaniels was a member of the Patriots' coaching staff from 2001-08, helping the club win three Super Bowls, and spent the last three years as New England's offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach.

* - The Broncos' two Monday Night Football games (at San Diego on Oct. 19 and vs. Pittsburgh on Nov. 9) mark the 18th year in a row the club will make at least one appearance on the program. That is the longest active streak in the NFL and the fourth-longest such streak since the first Monday Night Football game was played in 1970. The Broncos' two Monday night outings represent the third year in a row they are scheduled for multiple Monday night games  (2007 - 3; 2008 - 2; 2009 - 2).

* - The Broncos' Monday night game at San Diego on Oct. 19 marks the second year in a row the club enters its bye week following a Monday night game. Denver's bye week this year is set for Week 7 (Oct. 26).

* - Following its bye week, Denver will face the 2008 AFC Championship Game participants in back-to-back contests. The Broncos visit Baltimore on Sunday, Nov. 1, before hosting the Super Bowl XLIII-champion Pittsburgh Steelers on Nov. 9 on Monday Night Football (second MNF appearance in three games for Denver).

* - Denver visits FedEx Field to face Washington on Sunday, Nov. 15, for the first time since 1998 when the Broncos defeated the Redskins 38-16. The game will mark eight-time Pro Bowl cornerback Champ Bailey's first appearance against the team that drafted him seventh overall in the 1999 NFL Draft.

* - Denver's divisional home opener against San Diego on Nov. 22 (Game 10) marks the latest in the season the club has hosted its first divisional opponent since 1999 (Game 11).

* - The Broncos will host a Thanksgiving game for the first time in 46 seasons and only the third time in club history when they play the New York Giants on Thursday, Nov. 26, at 6:20 p.m. MST at INVESCO Field at Mile High on NFL Network. The Broncos last played at home on Thanksgiving on Nov. 28, 1963, when they lost 26-10 to Oakland at Bears Stadium. The game will mark Denver's 11th all-time appearance on Thanksgiving, including its third in the last five seasons, with the club owning a 3-7 all-time record on the holiday.

* - Denver makes its first-ever trip to two of the three current stadiums in the league in which it has never played when it visits Indianapolis (Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday, Dec. 13) and Philadelphia (Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday, Dec. 27).

* - The Broncos' game against the Eagles marks the return of seven-time Pro Bowl safety Brian Dawkins to Philadelphia, where he played his first 13 NFL seasons before signing with the Broncos as an unrestricted free agent on Feb. 28.

* - Denver's regular-season schedule features seven games against six clubs that qualified for the playoffs last year. Its regular-season opponents had a combined record of 122-132-2 (.480) in 2008.

* - Denver's regular-season schedule features eight of the past nine Super Bowl winners-New England (XXXVI, XXXVIII, XXXIX), Baltimore (XXXV), Pittsburgh (XL, XLIII), N.Y. Giants (XLII) and Indianapolis (XLI).
