League Network source: Broncos to open 2017 season at home vs LA Chargers on Monday night. #9sports— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) April 20, 2017
The Broncos have opened up at home since 2011, and that streak continues this season. This will also be the first ever game for the Los Angeles Chargers, so the Broncos can make sure that team starts 0-1. This also guarantees the Broncos will have at least two primetime games this season since everyone appears on Thursday Night Football.
The Broncos split their two games against their division rivals last season. Both teams won their home games against each other, so hopefully, the Broncos will be able to defend their home turf once again.
Here are the teams the Broncos will be facing in 2017
Home: Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders, Los Angeles Chargers, New England Patriots, New York Jets, Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, Cincinnati Bengals
Away: Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders, Los Angeles Chargers, Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins, Indianapolis Colts
The entire NFL schedule will get released at 6 p.m. MT today, but more leaks will continue to happen. So stay tuned to Mile High Report for more updates on the #Broncos 2017 NFL schedule.
