Future Opponents

The National Football League realigned its divisional and conference structure in 2002 with the introduction of the Houston Texans as an expansion franchise, and with that adopted a scheduling format that determines the majority of each team’s opponents.

The formula for each team's 16-game schedule includes: home and away games against its three division opponents (6 games), the four teams from another division within its conference on a rotating three-year cycle (4 games), the four teams from a division in the other conference on a rotating four-year cycle (4 games) and two games against conference opponents based on the prior year's standings (2 games).

The actual schedule should be released by the NFL in April.

2018


In addition to its normal six divisional games, Denver will play each team in the NFC East and AFC East. The Broncos will also play the third-place teams in the AFC North and AFC South.
