It would be the seventh-consecutive season opener the Broncos played at home.
It also appears that there’s a date for the clash between the Brandon Marshalls, as WFAN’s Mike Francesa reports the New York Giants will travel to Denver in Week 6 on Oct. 15.
Brandon Marshall, the receiver, signed with the Giants this offseason after being released by the New York Jets.
It’ll be the first time Marshall’s played in Denver since being traded by the Broncos to the Miami Dolphins in April 2010.
As for the remainder of the Broncos 2017 schedule, the specific dates will be released Thursday evening. However, the team’s opponents for the season have already been released.
AFC West opponents (home and away):
• Chargers, Chiefs, and Raiders
