With the regular season NFL schedule set to debut Tuesday night, the Denver Broncos finalized their preseason schedule with four games against familiar preseason foes.
For the second time in three years the Broncos will be making a trip northwest as they open things up against the Seattle Seahawks on Friday, August 14 at 8 PM MDT. The Broncos defeated the Seahawks 21-16 at Sports Authority Field in last season's exhibition opener.
New Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak will return to NRG Stadium on August 22 at 6 PM MDT in Houston for the first time since being fired as the Texans head coach in December of 2013. If Kubiak's return wasn't enough of a headline, the two teams bring memories of their 2014 training camp get together at the Broncos practice field in Dove Valley and preseason game. Numerous fights broke out during practice and the heated confrontations culminated in a rare Peyton Manning taunting penalty during the game after he threw a touchdown pass and confronted Texans safety DJ Swearinger in the endzone. Manning was upset over a rough hit the safety placed on Wes Welker one play earlier that caused the wide receiver a concussion.
The Broncos will wrap up their preseason schedule with games at Sports Authority Field against the San Francisco 49ers and their new head coach Jim Tomsula on Friday, August 29 and the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday September 3. Both home games will kickoff at 7 PM MDT.
The complete 2015 regular season schedule will be released live on the NFL Network on Tuesday night beginning at 6 PM MDT.
