With just one glance at Denver’s schedule, there will be plenty of challenges for the team this upcoming season but also plenty of opportunity.

In terms of AFC West matchups, opening the season with the Las Vegas Raiders at home is always big in the eyes of Broncos fans. For the past several seasons, Denver hasn’t faced the Kansas City Chiefs until later on in the season.

In 2023, they’ll face the Chiefs twice in three weeks during the first half of the year before their bye week which comes in Week 9.

Not only will the AFC West be tough for Denver this year, but the AFC East will also be a challenge as well. The Broncos will face the Miami Dolphins in Week 3 on the road and then host the new look New York Jets as former head coach Nathaniel Hackett returns to Denver — this time as the offensive coordinator for the Jets and newly acquired quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

The Broncos will face the Buffalo Bills in Week 10 following the Bye Week on Monday Night Football in primetime action and the New England Patriots on Christmas Eve on the NFL Network.

On paper, the Broncos schedule looks tough, but luckily games aren’t played on paper. They’ll close out the season with two pivotal AFC West matchups against the Chargers at home, before ending the season on the road against the Raiders.
