Broncos 2022 NFL schedule: Week-by-week matchups, dates, times, TV channels, previews

The Denver Broncos have made the postseason since winning Super Bowl 50 six seasons ago, failing to produce a winning record since that championship. Times are changing in Denver, as the Broncos have pulled off the bulk of the move in the offseason acquiring Russell Wilson – the franchise quarterback’s team has been seeking since Peyton Manning retired.

Wilson’s presence has changed the culture in Denver, as the Broncos are contenders in a loaded AFC West and competitors are coming out of the AFC. In addition to Wilson, the Broncos also signed Randy Gregory away from the Dallas Cowboys and landed DJ Jones in free agency. K’Waun Williams also joins a secondary with Justin Simmons and Kareem Jackson. Melvin Gordon also re-signed with the Broncos, as his tandem with Javonte Williams is expected to be one of the best running back combinations in the league.

Expectations are high in Denver in Wilson’s first year with the team, making the season an exciting season. Below, find a complete look at the teams set to square off with the Broncos this year, as well as a rundown of their 18-week regular-season schedule.

2022 opponents

Chiefs (home, away): Denver has some hard luck against Kansas City, as the Broncos have never defeated Patrick Mahomes since he became quarterback of the Chiefs. The Broncos have lost 12 straight to the Chiefs, but this year is their best chance to snap the skid.

Chargers (home, away): FC Twente vs. SC Heerenveen Justin Herbert will be on television, especially since he’ll square off twice for the foreseeable future. Denver has won four of its last six against Los Angeles, and is 2-2 since Herbert became the starting quarterback.

Raiders (home, away): The Broncos resume this classic rivalry with the Raiders with Russell Wilson at quarterback, adding some spice to the matchup against a playoff team from last year. Denver has lost seven of its last nine against Vegas.

Colts (home): Russell Wilson and Matt Ryan squared off in the NFC over the years. Now, the quarterback matchup will resume in Denver. Wilson is 0-2 in the playoffs against Ryan, but is 3-3 all-time. The Colts haven’t beaten the Broncos in Denver since 2013.

Texans (home): The Broncos have won three of their last four against the Texans, a matchup that should favor Denver against a rebuilding Houston team. Denver has not won this matchup at home since 2016.

Jets (home): The Jets are an improved team, but the Broncos have the upper hand in this matchup. Denver is 5-1 in its last six against New York and has not lost in Denver since 2010.

Cardinals (home): Rayo Vallecano vs. Salamanca Russell Wilson should be a fun one, especially since both quarterbacks can trade scores in a shootout. The Broncos are 5-0 against the Cardinals all-time in Denver, and Arizona has not beaten them since 2010 (9-1-1 all-time).

49ers (home): The 49ers-Broncos matchup was a must-see event in the 1980s and 1990s, which should be renewed as both teams are good in 2022. San Francisco has not beaten Denver at Empower Field since 2006.

Jaguars (away): Trevor Lawrence will be seeing the Broncos for the second consecutive year, a matchup Denver won 23-13 last season. Denver has not lost in Jacksonville since 2010.

Titans (away): The Broncos and Titans meet for the third time in four years, but this is the first time Denver will play in Tennessee since 2016. Denver has not won at Nissan Stadium since 2010.

Ravens (away): FC Twente vs. SC Heerenveen Lamar Jackson will be one of the funniest quarterback matchups on the schedule, which should be one of the battle’s two excellent defenses. Denver hasn’t won in Baltimore since 2012.

Rams (away): The Christmas Day matchup with Los Angeles is one of the most anticipated on the calendar. Russell Wilson squaring off against Matthew Stafford is another excellent quarterback matchup on the schedule. The Broncos haven’t beaten the Rams since 2002 and haven’t beaten them on the road since 1982.

Seahawks (away): Russell Wilson will be facing his old team for the first time this season, helping the franchise bring a Super Bowl championship. Denver has not beaten Seattle in Seattle since 2002.

Panthers (away): The Broncos don’t play in Charlotte much, but they have lost at the Bank of America Stadium since 2008. Denver is 6-1 all-time against Carolina.
