Broncos To Play On Primetime TV 5 Times

The NFL schedule makers are returning to one of their biggest cash cows—the Denver Broncos—to keep the television ratings booming. Again the Broncos will play on primetime television five times in 2015.

The Denver Broncos have become the media darlings of the NFL. It began with Tebow-Mania in 2011 and reached sensational proportions when Peyton Manning arrived in Denver, back in 2012. The NFL’s schedule makers, in conjunction with their partners in network television, want to capitalize on the Mile High Mania, as they scheduled the Broncos for five primetime games in 2015.

The Broncos also face the Indianapolis Colts in Week 9, currently set to kickoff at 2:25 MST. With both of Peyton Manning’s previous regular season clashes with Andrew Luck and his former team coming under the bright lights of primetime television, don’t be surprised to see this game get flexed to Sunday Night Football.

Five Hot Threads On The MHH Forums

In a recent Harris Poll, it was revealed that the Dallas Cowboys are no longer considered America’s Team. The Denver Broncos have taken their place. And as long as Peyton Manning is in Denver, perhaps we shouldn’t expect that to change.

However, with four consecutive seasons of postseason failures, two of which were one-and-dones under Manning’s watch, the Broncos could conceivably wear out their welcome with America.

But as long as the Broncos ratings keep coming in at stratospheric levels, the NFL will keep scheduling the Broncos on primetime. After all, the NFL is a nine billion dollar nut, and growing exponentially.
