Denver Broncos Opponents 2024: Chiefs, Steelers, Browns Come to Town, Visit Ravens and Buccaneers

The full 2024 NFL schedule is not out just yet, but every team knows the opponents they will face. Who will the Denver Broncos square off with in 2024?

Although the NFL has not yet released a full 2024 schedule with times and dates for the upcoming season’s games, we do know which opponents all 32 teams will face in 2024 along with the split of home and road games.

Denver’s opponents for the 2024 season are set, as the Broncos finished third in the AFC West last year following a loss to the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 18.

The Broncos and other AFC teams will play eight home games and nine road games in 2024.

Broncos To Play Five Playoff Teams in 2024

As the third-place AFC West finisher, the Broncos will host the Indianapolis Colts, who finished in third place in the AFC South. Denver will visit the Seahawks and Jets, who finished in third place in the NFC West and AFC East, respectively.

The Broncos will also face each team in the AFC North and NFC South.

Denver will host the Steelers, Browns, Panthers, and Falcons and travel to play the Ravens, Bengals, Saints, and Buccaneers.

The Broncos will also play their annual home-and-homes against their AFC West opponents.

Five of the Broncos’ opponents on their 2024 schedule made the 2023 postseason.

Last season, Denver lost critical home games to subpar teams throughout the season, which cost them a chance to make a playoff run in 2023.

Denver finished with a 5-4 home record in 2023 with impressive victories over the Chiefs — ending a 16-game skid to their AFC West compatriot — and Browns. However, the Broncos lost as a favorite to the Raiders, Washington Commanders, Jets, and New England Patriots while holding a halftime lead in all four games.

Of Denver’s home schedule, three of the teams they face next season are all incumbent playoff teams (Chiefs, Steelers, Browns). Four of the teams the Broncos will host at home next season will have a brand new head coach in 2024.

The Broncos will face a tough road slate. Matchups against two playoff teams from 2023 (Ravens, Buccaneers) highlight the list, as well as Sean Payton’s homecoming to New Orleans.

One of the biggest question marks for the Broncos’ upcoming season is their quarterback. Could the Broncos face Russell Wilson, who the team is expected to part ways with in March? Could Wilson potentially sign with the Raiders, Falcons, or Steelers in the offseason?

Denver could turn to an affordable option under center, potentially targeting a quarterback in the first round of the draft or somebody in free agency. The overarching goal is to find a better fit for Payton’s offense and lead his roster into the postseason.

The Broncos will attempt to snap two ugly streaks this upcoming season: eight years without a playoff berth, the NFL’s second-longest active drought, and seven seasons without a winning record.
