Broncos Schedule 2012: Denver Could Open Season On Sunday Night At Home Against Pittsburgh Steelers

The Denver Broncos will know in a few weeks how their 2012 season schedule will turn out. We already have learned that the NFL is planning on putting the Broncos into primetime throughout the season, and there are rumors that the Broncos will be in the first Sunday Night Football game of the season. It now appears that that possibility is coming to fruition. The Denver Post's Mike Klis reports that the Broncos could open the season at Mile High with a game against the Pittsburgh Steelers or on the road against the New England Patriots on Sunday night.

Both teams would be ideal matchups for the Broncos since Denver played them in the playoffs last season. Plus, the addition of Peyton Manning makes the Broncos a great storyline throughout the season: injured quarterback returns with a new team -- how will he perform? And on a lower level, Josh McDaniels, former Broncos head coach, will be offensive coordinator for the Patriots (after being an assistant coach while Bill O'Brien remained in the position before moving to Penn State).
