The NFL has released their 2015 schedule, and the Denver Broncos will have some interesting match-ups against the AFC West, AFC North, and NFC North.
After finishing the 2014 season at 12-4, the Denver Broncos were unceremoniously ousted from the NFL playoffs by the Indianapolis Colts in the Divisional Round. That led to quite the flurry of offseason activity in Denver, with Peyton Manning restructuring his contract, Demaryius Thomas getting slapped with the franchise tag, and numerous players leaving the team, including Julius Thomas, Orlando Frankin, Rahim Moore, and Wes Welker.
That said, the Broncos still bring back a formidable roster and as long as they have Manning behind the center, they’ll be in the thick of things in the AFC again in 2015.
Then again, the game isn’t played solely on the back of the roster you assemble, but also the schedule you have to endure. Each year, NFL teams play each team within their division twice and they play one AFC and one NFC divison on a rotational basis. To fill in the final two spots on the schedule, the teams need to take on opponents who finished in the same position in their respective divisons.
For the Denver Broncos, it looks like it will be an interesting schedule to say the least. After playing an AFC West division that the Broncos went 10-2 against last season, Denver will see the NFC North and the AFC North on their schedules. Oh, and the annual Brady-Manning Bowl will be tossed in there too!
So what does the Denver Broncos schedule look like for the 2015 season?
