Expect Broncos 2012 schedule to load up on primetime games
The early word on the Broncos’ schedule: “Our fans should get ready for more night games,” Ellis said. “Home and road.”
A team can have a maximum of six primetime games a season: four scheduled on ESPN’s Monday Night Football or NBC’s Sunday Night Football; one on the NFL Network’s Thursday Night Football and a sixth that can be flexed on NBC’s Sunday Night Football after week 10.
With Peyton Manning the toast of the league, look for the Broncos to have five primetime games on their 2012 schedule when its released. And then look for a “flexible” opponent in the final weeks.
Gonna be lots of late nights in Broncos Land this year. Of course, IAOFM will have you covered.
