From denverbroncos.com:

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Broncos' 2010 schedule was released on Tuesday, and it features six games against five playoff teams, an appearance on Monday Night Football and a trip overseas.

For the fourth consecutive season, the team's first AFC West contest of the season comes against the Oakland Raiders, and the divisional play starts late this year -- the game doesn't come until Week 7.

Here are a few more facts about this year's campaign:

  • For the 19th consecutive year, the Broncos will make at least one appearance on Monday Night Football, the longest active streak in the league. The streak of appearances on the program is the longest active streak in the NFL and is tied for the second-longest streak in league history.
  • Denver will open its season on the road for the sixth consecutive season. Despite that fact, the Broncos own the second-best opening-game record in NFL history (32-17-1), and the team has won its last three openers.
  • With the Indianapolis Colts on the schedule, it marks the 11th consecutive season the Broncos have played at least one of the previous season's two Super Bowl teams.
  • Denver's game against the 49ers marks the fourth time the NFL has hosted a regular-season game in the United Kingdom with the previous three contests played before sellout crowds.
  • Including the trip to London, the Broncos will travel more than 23,000 miles during the 2010 campaign.
  • Weeks 13-15 mark the 14th time in franchise history the team will play three consecutive road games. The most recent stretch came in the 1997 season.
  • After their bye, the Broncos play five AFC West contests in the final eight weeks of the season.
  • Denver's opponents this season sport a combined 2009 record of 124-132-0 -- the 24th toughest schedule in the league.
