Good morning, Broncos Country!
Bring on the Denver Broncos season ... sort of.
The NFL and NFL Players’ Association agreed to terms on a 2020 season on Friday. On Saturday, players received what the schedule will look like. We knew, much like all of 2020 at this point, it would be unique. Well, it surely is (thank you, and don’t call me Shirley).
Per NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, who tweeted the schedule, here’s how it will look.
