Frankly isn't it time for the NFC West to start taking up those 2nd monday night games? I kinda hate being the 2nd monday night game.
I'd rather have the Broncos open at home as the 2nd Monday night game than open on the road. Because of CBS coverage of the US Open Tennis on that opening Sunday we'll never see a Denver home opener with a 2:15 pm start (as CBS doesn't want to televise any AFC games in that timeslot). The NFL could also put an NFC team in here (hence Fox coverage) but in the past they haven't wanted to do that for the opener.
When the Broncos did have the 2nd Monday night game two years ago it didn't turn out too well (a loss in the rain vs the Raiders which I sat through at the stadium), but historically Denver does usually win its home openers and doesn't fare as well on the road.
