Ouch. We all knew the schedule for 2012 would be daunting, but to actually see the games arranged in home and away schedule, as well as which weeks the Broncos face certain opponents, and the reality sets in: The Broncos have their work cut out for them this season.

To examine this schedule in detail, the Broncos have it rough, especially at the beginning, facing six playoff teams in their first eight games and only facing four losing teams all year (counting the Chiefs only once).

No one can predict if Peyton Manning will remain healthy for the entire season, but despite some of his late game heroics, Tim Tebow would be eaten alive by this challenge (just to be clear, I have nothing against Tim Tebow; I think he was a better QB than most do). It's nice to know that we have a QB with some experience against the tougher teams in the league.

So how do Peyton, Champ, "Doom and Gloom" and the rest of the Broncos crew make it to the top of the AFC, and beyond, this season? These are five games that the Broncos must win to show the NFL that they are serious contenders.
