The Broncos will face the Cardinals at State Farm Stadium on Aug. 11, 2023 at 8 p.m. MDT.
The Broncos are set to take on the Cardinals in the first game of the 2023 preseason, and we'll get our first look at this year's team in live action. Head Coach Sean Payton will man Denver's sideline for the first time, and he'll have plenty to evaluate. After the Broncos' starters sat out the 2022 preseason, they are expected to play 15-18 snaps on Friday night in Arizona.
Quarterback Russell Wilson enters Year 2 in Denver, and he'll look to distribute the ball to his playmakers like Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy on Friday night in the desert. Denver also will have its first chance to establish the run game, which was a big area of focus during the offseason. Though Javonte Williams' status for Friday's game remains uncertain, Samaje Perine and a slew of young running backs should be capable of setting the tone on the ground. Defensively, the Broncos' edge rushers will have a chance to get after Arizona's quarterbacks. Frank Clark and Randy Gregory will lead the first wave, while Jonathon Cooper and Nik Bonitto have a chance to continue their strong starts to training camp. Denver's top two draft selections — wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. and inside linebacker Drew Sanders — should also make their Broncos debuts on Friday.
