The NFL finally released its preseason schedule. Since they expanded the regular season to 17 games, we’ve only got three preseason games now. The Denver Broncos will play two road games and end with a home preseason game before the rosters get trimmed down.
They will open things up with a couple of joint practice sessions with the Minnesota Vikings before playing their first preseason game against them on August 12th. In Week 2 of the preseason, they’ll head out west to take on the Seattle Seahawks on August 21st before coming back home to wrap things up on August 28th against the Los Angeles Rams.
Broncos Preseason Schedule
|8/12/2021||Minnesota Vikings||2:00 PM||U.S. Bank Stadium|

|8/28/2021||Los Angeles Rams||7:05 PM||Empower Field at Mile High|
As a fan, I love the idea of trimming down the preseason. I’d even go further and just have two exhibition games before the start to the regular season. If the NFL is insisting on making the regular season even more grueling than it already is, then give players as little of a preseason as possible.
The Broncos full regular season schedule is below.
