The Denver Broncos are rumored to open up on the road in Week 1 against the New York Giants, but we’ve also got an rumor coming in from an old friend about a Week 8 contest against the Washington Football Team. Nicki Jhabvala has reported that Denver will host WFT in Week 8.

The Broncos and WFT have battled it out over the years with the all-time series tied up at 7 a piece, with the tie breaker going to WFT when their Redskins team in 1987-88 led by Doug Williams absolutely demolished the John Elway led Broncos 42-10 where they scored a Super Bowl record 35 points in the second quarter of that game.

If this rumor holds up, the Broncos will take on WFT on Sunday, October 31, 2021 at 2:25 PM Mile High time at Empower Field at Mile High.
