2021 Broncos schedule: dates and times of 17 matches, schedule strength, final record prediction
The Broncos, who finished 5-11 last season and finished last in the AFC West, are looking to give coach Vic Fangio a chance in 2021. Denver has not played in the playoffs since 2015, the season that ended with the team. He won the Super Bowl 50.
John Elway hired George Paton GM. But the Broncos, to everyone’s surprise, didn’t do everything they could to try to replace Drew Lock’s second-round quarterback in the quarterback, so they decided to bring in a Teddy Bridgewater mix (for now). Although the offense is expected to perform better with the talented pieces around QB, the defense continues to rebuild for Fangio.
Here is the full details of the Bronchos 2021 program, including dates, start times and analysis.

The Broncos looked at everyone in the division last season. The bosses are still awesome and the Chargers deserve it. Las Vegas offers Denver a light opening to get out of the basement.
Outside of the six AFC West games, the Broncos joins these opponents to play all of AFC North and NFC East. The Jaguars and Jets are extra games from the final AFC positions. Sold Out Lions is as easy as NFC North’s 17th opponent.
The strength of the Broncos schedule
The Broncos, on paper, have the sixth-simplest schedule in the NFL, tied with the Dolphins. Denver’s opponents went 127-143-2 last season, or a .471 winning percentage. Many of them come from Jacksonville, two New York teams, and Detroit.
However, the Broncos still face a return to the playoffs in six of their 17 games.
The toughest tests: The Broncos ’road schedule is wild, with trips to Cleveland and Pittsburgh offsetting the Jacksonville date. They also need to play in Dallas and go to the Giants.
It’s a little different at home, where the Chiefs, Ravens and Washington represent the Broncos ’three toughest games in total.
The biggest breaks: The Broncos get “won” breaks in the Jaguars, Jets and Lions, all three teams in the same situation. There are also Bengals, Eagles and Raiders coming to Denver.
Bottom line: Broncos are a mixed bag with offensive boundaries and a renewed defense. Fangio must now win after being saved, despite the poor result his team had in 2020.
If the QB situation changes drastically, it would be good to consider that the Broncos are making a full 180. But in the current situation, there is little that inspires anything from Lock or Bridgewater’s latest play.
Record announcement: 6-11
