2010 Denver Broncos Schedule

If they have it their way, the 2010 Denver Broncos Schedule will start out the same way the 2009 campaign did. In '09, the Broncos came out on fire winning their first six games under rookie head coach Josh McDaniels and new starting quarterback Kyle Orton. That, however, was the highlight of the Broncos season, as the team stumbled home to an 8-8 record after tabbing a 2-8 record over the remaining 10 weeks of the season. It was dubbed as quite a remarkable collapse.

Denver had two separate losing streaks of four games, and despite that, had an opportunity at a playoff berth, but failed to transform that into reality, ending without a trip to the post-season.

A new year breeds a new outlook however, and Denver is quick to forget about the past. The organization perhaps made the most surprising move at the 2010 NFL Draft earlier this year in April, selecting University of Florida quarterback Tim Tebow in the first round. Tebow was a highly successful quarterback as a member of the Gators, winning two national championships and a Heisman Trophy, but was widely considered to have faulty mechanics as a passer that would not produce in the NFL. The Broncos bypassed that notion, and took him with the intention for him to compete for the starting position with Kyle Orton, and newly acquired Brady Quinn.

The 2010 Denver Broncos Season Schedule will match them with the NFC East out of conference, facing games against playoff teams from a year ago in Dallas and Philadelphia. Additionally, the Broncos will play New England, Pittsburgh and Baltimore which could all potentially be difficult games for Denver.

The Broncos open the year against the Jaguars on the road looking for a similar start to last season, trying to forget about the four-game losing streak they ended on.

Sunday, September 19, 2010 @ 4:05pm (FOX) - Denver Broncos vs. Seattle Seahawks

The Broncos face the NFC in 2010 and will first get Seattle for their home opener. Seattle shared a similar fate as Denver a year ago, failing to make the playoffs. Denver will likely be the early favorite in this one prior to the season.

Sunday, September 26, 2010 @ 4:15pm (CBS) - Denver Broncos vs. Indianapolis Colts

The Broncos face the defending AFC Champions early in Week 3 of the 2010 NFL Season. Last year the Colts bested the Broncos at home. Denver will be looking to repay the favor in this one.

Sunday, October 3, 2010 @ 1:00pm (CBS) - Denver Broncos at Tennessee Titans

The Broncos face Chris Johnson, Vince Young and the rest of the Titans in Week 4 of the NFL season. These two teams did quite the opposite a year ago, with the Titans starting out 0-6 before going 8-2 in their final 10 games.

Sunday, October 10, 2010 @ 1:00pm (CBS) - Denver Broncos at Baltimore Ravens

The Broncos travel to Baltimore to take on Joe Flacco, Ray Lewis and company in Week 5. The Raven made the playoffs last season, and this should be a test for the Broncos looking ahead to the season.

Sunday, October 17, 2010 @ 4:05pm (CBS) - Denver Broncos vs. New York Jets

Denver hosts New York in Week 6, as the Jets added several notable names to their roster. New York made the AFC Championship a year ago. This game marks the fourth-straight on their 2010 Schedule they will have played a team with at least a .500 in 2009.

Sunday, October 24, 2010 @ 4:15pm (CBS). Denver Broncos vs. Oakland Raiders

The Broncos and Raiders match up in a divisional match that will likely be important for both teams as they approach the midway portion of their season and will be looking to get on the right course.

Sunday, October 31, 2010 @ 1:00pm (CBS) - Denver Broncos at. San Fransisco 49ers

The Broncos and 49ers face each other in a NFC West vs. AFC West with Denver looking to get a win before a week off from the 2010 Denver Broncos Team Schedule.

Sunday, November 7, 2010 - Bye

Sunday, November 14, 2010 @ 4:05pm (CBS) - Denver Broncos vs. Kansas City Chiefs

This starts a stretch of three division opponents in a four week period for Denver. I could be the most important stretch of games for the Broncos all season long with respect to the division race.

Monday, November 22nd, 2010 @ 8:30pm (ESPN) - Denver Broncos at San Diego Chargers

The Broncos get their first shot at the defending AFC West champions in Week 11 of the season, with the course for both teams likely, at least in part, hinging on the outcome of this game

Sunday, November 28, 2010 @ 4:15pm (FOX) - Denver Broncos vs. St. Louis Rams

The Broncos face the Rams in Week 12 of the season. The Rams won only one game in 2009, but will look to improve in 2010 with the addition of quarterback Sam Bradford.

Sunday, December 5, 2010 @ 1:00pm (CBS) - Denver Broncos vs. Kansas City Chiefs

The Broncos face the Chiefs for the first time late in the 2010 NFL Season, in what could be an important division game. The Chiefs won only four games last season, though they did split the series with Denver.

Sunday, December 5, 2010 @ 4:15pm (CBS) - Denver Broncos at Arizona Cardinals

Denver faces the NFC West champions from last season in Week 14, as the Cardinals will implement Matt Leinart as the likely starter after the retirement of Kurt Warner. Arizona has one of the best wideouts in the league in Larry Fitzgerald.

Sunday, December 12, 2010 @ 4:15pm (CBS) - Denver Broncos at Oakland Raiders

Denver defeated the Raiders early last year, but stumbled down the stretch and split the season series with Oakland. If they have aspirations of making the playoffs in 2010, the Broncos will likely need a key victory like this division match up.

Sunday, December 19, 2010 @ 4:05pm (CBS) - Denver Broncos vs. Houston Texans

The AFC West and AFC South collide in this one, with the Broncos looking to turn around the end of the season from last year, and win down the stretch.

Sunday, January 2, 2011 @ 4:15pm (CBS) - Denver Broncos vs. San Diego Chargers

This could be the most important game on the 2010 Denver Broncos Weekly Schedule if it comes down to a close battle for the division, and have to potential for drama late in the year.
