The Denver Broncos’ 2017 preseason schedule was announced Monday. Here it is in all its glory:
Week 1: at Chicago Bears — Aug. 10-13
Week 2: at San Francisco 49ers — Aug. 17-20
Week 3: vs. Green Bay Packers — Aug. 24-27
Week 4: vs. Arizona Cardinals — Aug. 31
Denver starts off on the road with games in Chicago against the Bears and then in San Francisco against the 49ers. The Broncos wrap up their preseason with two home games against the Packers and Cardinals.
One thing to potentially watch for come preseason is the Broncos’ quarterback battle. Broncos coach Vance Joseph told reporters Monday that the competition between Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch is “open” and “50/50.”
Siemian, a seventh-round 2015 draft pick out of Northwestern, beat out Lynch, who Denver took in the first round in 2016, and Mark Sanchez for the job last year in the preseason.
Siemian wound up starting 14 games in 2016. Lynch started two games. The two will duke it out for the starting gig this year.
