2017 NFL Schedule: A third place schedule isn’t going to be a cake walk for Broncos

New, comments

The Denver Broncos will be playing a lot of playoff teams in 2017.

Since we’re moving on to 2017 with Gary Kubiak and the Denver Broncos, let’s take a look at the 2017 schedule. All but one opponent has been decided and the biggest positive is that most of the playoff teams from 2016 will be coming to Denver as opposed to Denver travelling to them.

Home: Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders, San Diego Chargers, New England Patriots, New York Jets, Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, Cincinnati Bengals

Away: Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders, San Diego Chargers, Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins, Tennessee Titans/Indianapolis Colts

They cannot afford to go .500 at home again in 2017. Their 4-3 record right now is not the kind of home record Broncos fans are used to and if they lose next week to the Raiders it will be a .500 record.

The best part of this schedule is getting the Patriots, Cowboys and Giants at Mile High. Those would be very tough matchups on the road.
