The Denver Broncos are hoping to do what no team has done since the Miami Dolphins did it back in the early 1970s-  losing a Super Bowl and coming back to win the big game the following season. A super tough regular season schedule will make a return trip to the Super Bowl a challenge for the 2014 Orange Crush.

In addition to the regular home and home contests against AFC West divisional opponents, none of which look to be a cakewalk, the Broncos will see the likes of  Indianapolis, Seattle, New England, San Francisco, and Cincinnati.

As if the opponent aren't tough enough, the schedule makers did the Broncos no favors by scheduling their bye in week #4, which is a serious disadvantage later in the season. Additionally, the Broncos will play six of their last nine games on the road.
