After a 2016 season in which the Broncos came close but failed to make the playoffs for the first time in six years, the Broncos and new head coach Vance Joseph have a talented team that should compete for an AFC West division title.

Four of their final six games are on the road, and the team gets a bye in Week 5.

The complete schedule is as follows (All times Mountain Time)

WEEK 1: Sept. 11, vs. Los Angeles Chargers, Mile High, 8:20 p.m. on ESPN

WEEK 2: Sept. 17, vs. Dallas Cowboys, Mile High, 2:25 p.m. on FOX

WEEK 3: Sept. 24, @ Buffalo Bills, New Era Field, 11:00 a.m. on CBS

WEEK 4: Oct. 1, vs. Oakland Raiders, Mile High, 2:25 p.m. on CBS

WEEK 5: BYE

WEEK 6: Oct. 15, vs. New York Giants, 6:30 p.m. on NBC

Game Spotlight: It has been eight years since the Giants played in Denver, and in that 2009 game — a 26-6 Broncos win — wide receiver Brandon Marshall led the Broncos with 6 catches for 86 yards. Marshall was a Bronco from 2006 to 2009, and he’s now with the Giants — his fourth NFL team. You can bet current Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall (no relation!) and the Denver defense will be looking to stop Marshall and the rest of the Giants offense in their tracks.

WEEK 7: Oct. 22, @ Los Angeles Chargers, 2:25 p.m. on CBS

Game Spotlight: The Broncos will play for the first time at the 30,000-seat StubHub Center, the temporary Los Angeles home of the Chargers (and by far the NFL’s smallest capacity stadium). In January, the Chargers announced their plans to move the franchise to L.A. for the 2017 season. The Chargers will eventually join the Los Angeles Rams in a $2.66 billion stadium that Rams owner Stan Kroenke is building in Inglewood, Calif. It is expected to be finished for the 2019 season.

WEEK 8: Oct. 30, @ Kansas City Chiefs, Arrowhead Stadium, 6:30 p.m. on ESPN

WEEK 9: Nov. 5, @ Philadelphia Eagles, Lincoln Financial Field, 11:00 a.m. on CBS

WEEK 10: Nov. 12, vs. New England Patriots, Mile High, 6:30 p.m. on NBC

WEEK 11: Nov. 19, vs. Cincinnati Bengals, Mile High, 2:25 p.m. on CBS

WEEK 12: Nov. 26, @ Oakland Raiders, Oakland–Alameda County Coliseum, 2:25 p.m. on CBS
