The Broncos will face a handful of familiar opponents in their preseason schedule, which was released on Thursday.

For the second consecutive year, the Broncos will open the preseason against the Seahawks, this time in Seattle. The matchup against the reigning NFC Champions will be between August 13-17 at CenturyLink Field. This will be the 13th time the two teams have faced off in the preseason, a series the Broncos lead 9-3.

The Broncos will then travel to Houston to play head coach Gary Kubiak's former team at NRG Stadium in Week 2 (August 20-24). It will be the seventh time the teams have played in the preseason against one another (Broncos lead 4-2). The Broncos played the Texans in Week 3 of the preseason last year.

Denver's home opener will be in the third week of the preseason, against the 49ers sometime in late August between August 27-30. The Broncos hosted the 49ers in the regular season last October in a 42-17 win. Denver and San Francisco have a long history playing each other in the preseason, with 36 previous exhibition matchups, including one last year.

The preseason schedule will wrap up for the Broncos at home against the Cardinals. Denver also played Arizona in the regular season last year in October, a game that saw Demaryius Thomas set the franchise's single-game receiving yards record. In all-time preseason matchups, the Broncos lead the Cardinals 16-7 as the two prepare to face off for the 24th time.
