ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- While incorporating their fifth starting quarterback and second coach since Peyton Manning retired, the Broncos will feature an extra exhibition game and common opponents to help in their tune up.
The NFL released the 2019 preseason schedule on Tuesday. For the Broncos new coach Vic Fangio and quarterback Joe Flacco there is a welcomed twist. The Broncos open Aug. 1 in Canton, Ohio against the Atlanta Falcons as a precursor to the inductions of cornerback Champ Bailey and owner Pat Bowlen. The rest of the schedule looks like many in years past with a Western flavor:
BRONCOS 2019 PRESEASON SCHEDULE
Vs. Falcons, Aug. 1, 6 p.m.
At Seahawks, Aug 8-12 (date TBA)
Vs. 49ers, Aug. 18, 6 p.m.
At Rams, Aug. 22-25 (date TBA)
Vs. Cardinals, Aug. 29
Because the Broncos are participating in the Hall of Fame game, it requires an adjustment of their offseason. Their final mandatory minicamp is scheduled to end on June 6 with the team's first training camp practice set for July 18.
