The Denver Broncos will kickoff the 2012 NFL season with a home opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday Night Football, according to multiple reports. Mile High Sports was one of the first to break the news.
The game, which will be nationally televised by NBC, will presumably take place on Sunday, September 9th. It will be the first SNF game of the season, four days after the New York Giants host the Dallas Cowboys on Wednesday to kickoff the season.
The Broncos’ full schedule will be announced at 5 p.m. (MT) on ESPN and NFL Network. The team is expected to receive four to five scheduled prime-time games.
Predicting that the Broncos will also face the New Orleans Saints, Carolina Panthers and New England Patriots in prime-time this season. Stay tuned for the full schedule!
