Broncos 2017 schedule: National Football League announces preseason opponents

The Chargers, who are playing home games at the StubHub Center until they move into Stan Kroenke's new Inglewood stadium with the Rams in 2019, will visit the Coliseum in Week 3.

During the Cowboys third preseason game a year ago, against the Seattle Seahawks, veteran starting quarterback Tony Romo suffered a major back injury.

Denver travelled to Chicago in Week 1 of the 2016 preseason and shut the Bears out in a 22-0 victory.

Just like past year, the Rams will host the Dallas Cowboys for their first preseason game of 2017, and after seeing all of the changes made this offseason, it will be interesting to see how good the team looks in these four games.

To start their 2017 preseason slate, the Saints will play the Cleveland Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium.

The full regular season schedule is expected to be released later this month before the draft. The teams have split the past two matchups, and the Buccaneers lead the all-time preseason series, 9-7. New Orleans defeated Cleveland in the 1968 preseason and lost to them in a 1982 exhibition.

The Bears and the Browns have been facing each other in the preseason for many years now.

The preseason is a great time to work on certain aspects of one's game, and can help give fans an idea of how well the young players are improving. In weeks three and four of the exhibition season the Saints will play the Houston Texans in the Super Dome, followed by the Baltimore Ravens. The exact dates and times of each game will be announced at a later date.
