NFL chose matchup over Denver visit to New England
The league will feature the Broncos in its first Sunday Night Game of the 2012 season. The Broncos will play the Pittsburgh Steelers in their season opener Sept. 9 at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, an NFL source said.
New England was a possibility for the Broncos on the Sunday night opener, but the NFL went with Pittsburgh instead.
The rest of the schedule is due at the top of the next hour, and of course we'll have that for you here.
