The Denver Broncos’ first playoff game will be Saturday, Jan. 14, and will be viewed by a prime-time CBS television audience at 6 p.m. Mountain time.
The NFL announced the schedule for the second weekend of the playoffs Tuesday. The Broncos haven’t had a home playoff game since the end of the 1998 season and have never hosted a playoff game at Invesco Field at Mile High. Denver, which has the second seed in the AFC playoffs and a first-round bye, will play Cincinnati, New England or Jacksonville in its first playoff game. If Cincinnati wins this weekend, it will be Denver’s opponent. Otherwise it will be the winner between the other two teams.
