Update: Broncos 2015 schedule released
Ever year of Peyton Manning's tenure in Denver has seen the Broncos quarterback open Week 1 of the NFL season in primetime. That may not be the case in 2015.
According to one report by CBS' Vic Lombardi, Manning will face the Ravens at home on CBS in to open the regular season.
Sources tell me the Broncos will open the regular season at home against Baltimore. That's Sunday, September 13th on CBS4. #Broncos— Vic Lombardi (@VicLombardi) April 21, 2015
Then there are reports of the Broncos' November plans that would involve the NFC North.

From what I'm hearing, Broncos are a really good bet to play the Lions on Thanksgiving— Kyle Meinke (@kmeinke) April 21, 2015
Heard we might play on ThanksGiving Day. That would be dope! @Broncos— T.J. Ward (@BossWard43) April 21, 2015
(Thanksgiving would be Week 12).
Broncos will appreciate the placement of the bye week this season. Later than last year.— Vic Lombardi (@VicLombardi) April 21, 2015
