Denver Broncos opponents set for 2014

With the playoff picture in the AFC just about set, Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos know exactly which teams they will face next year.

Because of the rotating schedule the NFL uses to schedule games between divisions, it was already decided that Denver and the rest of its division mates would face the AFC East and NFC West. And as the AFC West Champions this year, Denver will also face the Indianapolis Colts, the AFC South winners, and the Cincinnati Bengals, winners of the AFC Central.

That just leaves the two games against each of the three team in their divison: The Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers.

According to editor Gray Caldwell, the Broncos will host the Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers, Indianapolis Colts and three divisional matchups at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

The Broncos will also head on the road to face its division foes, along with the New England Patriots, New York Jets, St. Louis Rams, Seattle Seahawks and Cincinnati Bengals.

This will be the third straight year the Broncos will be forced to meet Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in Gillette Stadium.
