Broncos' 2018 opponents finalized

Posted Dec 31, 2017

The Broncos' home and away games for the upcoming season are set.

DENVER — As the 2017 slate comes to a close, the Broncos can already begin looking forward to the 2018-19 season.

Denver’s opponents for the upcoming year were finalized as Sunday afternoon’s games became final and the division standings became clear.

The Broncos’ loss locked them into the fourth spot in the AFC West, and they will take on the fourth-place teams in the AFC East and AFC South in 2018.

Indianapolis defeated Houston on Sunday, which means the Broncos will welcome the Texans for the first time since the Broncos won 27-9 in 2016. This will be just the seventh time in franchise history that the Broncos will face the Texans.

The Broncos also found out Sunday they would travel to MetLife Stadium to take on the Jets. Denver earned a 23-0 shutout win over the Jets in 2017.

Denver’s 2018 slate also includes games against the AFC North and NFC West.

The team will host the Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers, Los Angeles Rams and Seattle Seahawks at Sports Authority Field at Mile High in 2018.

The Broncos last welcomed the Steelers to Denver for a 2015 AFC Divisional playoff game and held on to win as they marched toward the Super Bowl 50 crown.

In 2018, Denver will hit the road for games against the Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers.

The Broncos, as always, will play a six-game division slate against the Los Angeles Chargers, Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders.

The NFL has not yet announced which teams will travel abroad for contests, so the location of games could be subject to change.

The league tends to release finalized schedules in April.

Home opponents: Browns, Chargers, Chiefs, Raiders, Rams, Seahawks, Steelers, Texans

Away opponents: 49ers, Bengals, Cardinals, Chargers, Chiefs, Raiders, Ravens, Jets
