Denver Broncos Schedule 2012: NFL Bumps Start Time For 4 Games

If you methodically plan your fall around the Denver Broncos' schedule, there are a few changes to make for the 2012 NFL season. With Peyton Manning around to generate national interest in the wake of Tim Tebow's departure, the Broncos are a team that everyone will be watching closely, and the NFL took some easy steps to make sure other games won't conflict with start times on a few Broncos games.

As noted by Lindsay Jones of The Denver Post, the NFL moved back the kickoff times for four Denver games this season to avoid overlap during double-headers on CBS or FOX. Start times have been shifted back 10 minutes from 2:15 p.m. MT to 2:25 p.m. MT for the following Broncos games:

Week 3, Sept. 23 vs. Houston Texans

Week 5, Oct. 7 at New England Patriots

Week 6, Nov. 18 vs. San Diego Chargers

Week 17, Dec. 30 vs. Kansas City Chiefs
