The Denver Broncos finished the season 7-9 after beating the Oakland Raiders in their 2019 regular season finale. It was a season that didn’t go as planned, but after starting out losing their first four games the team rallied to finish 7-5. It’s a good stepping stone heading into the 2020 offseason.
The second place schedule is Denver’s as they topped the Raiders there after all of the tiebreaker scenarios played out. With that second place schedule, they will be taking on some of the tougher opponents next season.
Broncos 2020 opponents
|Las Vegas Raiders||Las Vegas Raiders|
|Los Angeles Chargers||Los Angeles Chargers|
|Kansas City Chiefs||Kansas City Chiefs|
|Buffalo Bills||New York Jets|
|Miami Dolphins||New England Patriots|
|Tennessee Titans||Pittsburgh Steelers|
|New Orleans Saints||Carolina Panthers|
|Tampa Bay Buccaneers||Atlanta Falcons|
I am glad they will get the Buffalo Bills, New Orleans Saints, and Tennessee Titans at home. It’s also good that the Miami Dolphins will be in Denver, since the Broncos historically struggle in South Florida. The toughest road games on the schedule will be against the Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots.
Overall, I like the way this worked out for Denver. There are reports that the road game against the Atlanta Falcons could end up being an international game. That could be fun.
What do you think of this home/away schedule?
