Broncos 2022 opponents include difficult NFC West

The Broncos’ 2022 opponents are set. Under the NFL’s scheduling formula introduced last year, they will play eight home games and nine road games.

Home-and-away
Kansas City

2021 record: 12-5.

Last meeting: Chiefs 28-24 on Jan. 8.

Comment: The Broncos’ new coach will inherit a 13-game losing streak to Kansas City, which has won five consecutive AFC West titles. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes is 9-0 all-time against the Broncos.

Las Vegas

2021 record: 10-7.

Last meeting: Raiders 17-13 on Dec. 26.

Comment: The Raiders may have a new coach if owner Mark Davis doesn’t retain Rich Bisaccia, whose first game in charge this year was a win in Denver. Regardless of what they do with the head-coaching position, Las Vegas would be foolish to move on from quarterback Derek Carr.

L.A. Chargers

2021 record: 9-8.

Last meeting: Chargers 34-13 on Jan. 2.

Comment: The only division team the Broncos have had recent success against (4-2 in the last three years), new Chargers coach Brandon Staley turned the team around from a 7-9 record in 2020. Like Mahomes, quarterback Justin Herbert is going to be a decade-long problem for the Broncos.

Home
Arizona

2021 record: 11-6.

Last meeting: Broncos 45-10 on Oct. 18, 2018.

Comment: The Broncos’ first game against Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray. Arizona started 7-0, but wheezed to the finish line at 4-6, which cost it a hold on the NFC West it had for most of the season. The Cardinals won’t be concerned about Mile High — they went 8-1 on the road this year.

Houston

2021 record: 4-13.

Last meeting: Broncos 38-24 on Dec. 8, 2019.

Comment: Have a guess on who will be playing quarterback for the Texans? They rolled through veteran Tyrod Taylor and rookie Davis Mills this year as they struggled offensively — only 60 points in the first quarter and only 34 points in the third quarter, which contributed to nine losses by at least 10 points.

Indianapolis

2021 record: 9-8.
