Here’s what the Broncos should expect in 2012 after the NFL released Denver’s schedule on Tuesday (and here’s a go-to link to the Broncos 2012 schedule with links):




Week 1
Sunday, Sept. 9
Steelers … Sports Authority Field … 6:20 p.m. MDT, NBC
Peyton Manning will try to do in first game of 2012 what Tim Tebow did in last home game of 2011 season: Outduel Ben Roethlisberger and outfox Dick LeBeau.


Week 2
Monday, Sept. 17
at Falcons … Georgia Dome … 6:30 p.m. MDT, ESPN
Regular season is a tough time to play the Falcons. They have averaged 11 wins in Matt Ryan’s four-season career.


Week 3
Sunday, Sept. 23
Texans … Sports Authority Field … 2:15 p.m. CBS
Gary Kubiak’s restructured team should have QB Matt Schaub back healthy, but they’ll be without Mario Williams, Joe Dreessen, Eric Winston, LB Demeco Ryans.


Week 4
Sunday, Sept. 30
Raiders … Sports Authority Field … 2:05 p.m. MDT CBS
The first game the rival Raiders will play in Denver since legendary owner Al Davis passed away. The 2011 season-opener in Denver was the last game Davis attended.


Week 5
Sunday, Oct. 7
at Patriots … Gillette Stadium … 2:15 p.m. MDT CBS
The greatest QB rivalry of all-time: Manning vs. Brady. After Brady’s Pats won the first six, Manning has won four of the last six.


Week 6
Monday, Oct. 15
at Chargers … Qualcomm Stadium … 6:30 p.m. ESPN
Before anointing repeat AFC West title to Broncos, remember that Philip Rivers is 4-1 lifetime in head-to-head games against Manning.


Week 7 … Bye


Week 8
Sunday, Oct. 28
Saints …. Sports Authority Field … 6:20 MDT NBC
Manning will have Tracy Porter on his side this time. Bounty scandal makes this game more winnable.


Week 9
Sunday, Nov. 4
at Bengals …. Paul Brown Stadium … 11 a.m. MST, CBS
Can Peyton Manning cover A.J. Green? In game 2 in Denver last year, the rookie had 10 catches for 124 yards and a TD.


Week 10
Sunday, Nov. 11
at Panthers …. Bank of America Stadium … 11 a.m. MST CBS
John Fox returns to where he coached for nine seasons, three that were 11-5 or better.


Week 11
Sunday, Nov. 18
Chargers … Sports Authority Field … 2:15 p.m. MST, CBS
San Diego lost three key offensive players in G Kris Dielman (retirement), WR Vincent Jackson (free agency, Tampa Bay) and RB Mike Tolbert (free agency, Carolina).


Week 12
Sunday, Nov. 25
at Chiefs … Arrowhead Stadium … 11 a.m. MST, CBS
New Chiefs’ backup Brady Quinn would have plenty of secrets about Broncos’ offense — except Broncos’ offense figures to change with Manning.


Week 13
Sunday, Dec. 2
Buccaneers … Sports Authority Field … 2:05 p.m. MST, FOX
College coach Greg Schiano is the Bucs’ third head coach in five years.


Week 14
Thursday, Dec. 6
Raiders … O.co Coliseum … 6:20 p.m. MST, NFL Network
Once again, the Raiders have a new head coach. Former Broncos defensive coordinator Dennis Allen is their third in three years, four in five years and six in eight years.


Week 15
Sunday, Dec. 16
at Ravens … M&T Bank Stadium … 11 a.m. MST, CBS
Broncos are 0-5 lifetime against Ravens in Baltimore, losing by 14, 23, 20, 11 and 18 points.


Week 16
Sunday, Dec. 23
Browns … Sports Authority Field … 2:05 p.m. MST, CBS
Colt McCoy is going to break the hex the Broncos have on Cleveland?


Week 17
Sunday, Dec. 30
Chiefs …. Sports Authority Field … 2:15 p.m. MST, CBS
Had it not been for the Broncos signing Manning, Chiefs might have been the team to beat in AFC West with the return of Jamaal Charles, Eric Berry and
Tony Moeaki.

I agree with this (except the record prediction). This will be a really fun season of really good football.

At least we don't play S.F. or N.Y.G. in regular season. Their defenses scare me.

Superbowl, though, that is a different story.

Schedule is about opposing QB , health and when they play the team

Denver has the better QB in 14 out of 16 with NE and NO up for debate

First 8 weeks 4-4 would be good becuase they have to get better for Nov Dec.

Staying healthy I like the back half at 7-1

11-5

couldn't agree more. I'm alittle more optimistic about the 1st 8 games(5-3) but overall you're right on target with this asessment.

we haven't gone 2-2 or better in December for a really long time. I'm afraid that if we don't get off to a strong start, we will have trouble making up ground late.

We always seem to fade late, regardless of how the schedule looks.

I agree.. this is how I look at schedules, what QBs are the Broncos playing.
