Denver will be playing two night games - the opener on MNF versus the Raiders and a Week 11 Thursday night home game in November against the Jets just four days after a visit to Kansas City. Fortunately, the Broncos have escaped the perils of a three-game road trip, instead playing three pairs of back-to-back roadies. The other major pitfall avoided is their annual trip to Florida will come in late October rather than early September.

But at first glance, there appears to be a brutal seven-game stretch from Week 9 through Week 15, including all three of their road division games in a four-week period, plus home games versus the Jets, Bears and Patriots. In fact, there are no apparent weak pockets in the schedule, if there is such a thing for a team coming off a 4-12 season.

The brightest spot is perhaps that Denver essentially has two bye weeks - the natural one in Week 6 and a ten-day break between its Week 11 and 12 games; these serve to essentially break the season into thirds.
