The 2017 Denver Broncos regular season schedule has been announced. Despite facing eight playoff teams from a year ago, the 2017 regular season schedule for the Broncos is actually pretty well aligned.

For those of us without season tickets, we can pick up game tickets from our partners at Stub Hub. So far, they may only have preseason tickets available.

Strength of schedule

The Broncos will start the year with the toughest strength of schedule in the entire NFL. That can and will change, of course, and the one bright spot of this reality is that Denver will face most of those 2016 playoff teams in the Mile High city.

If they are going to have a tough slate of games, it is best that they have them at home rather than on the road.

Prime time heaven

A very favorable prime time slot of games for the Broncos is something they absolutely must take advantage of. Hosting the Chargers, Giants and Patriots in Mile High under the bright lights of prime time is exactly what you’d hope for as a fan.

However, they’ll also travel to Arrowhead Stadium for a Monday Night showdown with the Chiefs, along with a late season Thursday Night game against the Colts.

Brutal road stretches

The worst part of the schedule are two brutal stretches of road games. Fortunately, the first one has a Bye Week broken up, but both feature four road games in five games.

On the flip side, the Broncos could get out to a fast start with four home games out of the first five to start the season.
