While the Denver Broncos prepare for its Wild Card round playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the 2012 regular season schedule has already been released for the team. In the 2012 season, the Broncos will face the AFC North and the NFC South in non-division and non-conference games. That means the Broncos will face the Steelers during the 2012 regular season as well as head coach John Fox's old team, the Carolina Panthers.
The Broncos will travel to face the New England Patriots and host the Houston Texans, as finishing first in the AFC West results in the Broncos facing the other two division winners. However, no dates or times for these games have been set yet. They will not be announced until April most likely.
Here is the schedule of home and away opponents:
