Garett Bolles played in five prime-time games as a rookie for the Denver Broncos in 2017. Six years later, Bolles is more than ready to return to the spotlight and he will get his chance in 2022.

The Broncos schedule again includes five prime-time games this season, the team learned on May 12 with the release of the NFL schedule. Those five prime-time appearances are Monday Night Football in Seattle Week 1, Sunday Night Football vs. San Francisco in Week 3, Thursday Night Football vs. Indianapolis in Week 5, Monday Night Football with the Chargers in Week 6, and Sunday Night Football vs. the Chiefs in week 14.

Bolles responded to this Showcase schedule during his time Interview on KOA Colorado with Ryan Edwards and Benjamin Allbright.

“Super excited,” said Bolles when asked if he could play in front of a national crowd.

“In my rookie year we had a lot of prime time games,” he added, “so it’s been a minute since I’ve played that many prime time games and I’m really looking forward to all the great talent that I come across.” become .”

In Bolles’ rookie campaign in 2017, Denver also opened Monday Night Football, beating the Los Angeles Chargers 24-21. The team’s other prime-time appearances that season were Sunday Night Football with the New York Giants (23-10 -loss), Monday Night Football in Kansas City (29-19 loss), Sunday Night Football vs. New England (41-16 loss). and Thursday night football with the Colts (25-13 win).

New quarterback Russell Wilson, an obvious reason for Denver’s return to the national stage, did so in response to the schedule tweet.

As Bolles said, he and the rest of the Broncos will play against a lot of “big talent” in their upcoming schedule. The team has already faced some competition from one of their AFC West foes, the Chargers, for scheduled promotion.

The Chargers released their schedule with an anime video, and even Denver defenseman Dre’Mont Jones had to give it up for their efforts.

“Still not messing with y’all and it’s #BroncosCountry 4L but this shit is raw as hell I can’t lie,” Jones wrote in the retweet.

The video is definitely worth seeing:

The Broncos went in a different direction, but the team’s planned release video is creative in its own right.

It begins with a recording of the Denver practice facility, the UCHealth Training Center, dated May 12 at 3:18 p.m. And then we see Peyton Manning wearing a name tag and explaining that it’s the last day of his internship and he has to show the new guy the ropes.

The new guy is, of course, Wilson, who has his own name tag and inexpensive wardrobe. Admitting he still has a lot to learn, Wilson takes a prank call, practices Manning’s famous “Omaha” call, and even does a little beekeeping.

Unfortunately, Wilson drops the ball when it comes to the schedule. Luckily, there’s another Denver quarterback in the building to fill the void.

For a more serious look at the schedule, Mile High Report’s Tim Lynch has made game-by-game predictions with a brief summary of each competition in this article. He lets the Broncos go 13-3, with the only losses coming in Week 4 at the Raiders, Week 13 at the Ravens and Week 16 at the Rams on Christmas Day.

ESPN’s Jeff Legwold makes some predictions with caveats. Legwold writes that in order for the Broncos to exceed their Caesars Sportsbook overall win over/under the 10 line, Denver “must probably break their losing streak against the Chiefs, win most or all of their home games, and be in position to start a six-year playoff.” -Breaking Drought” in this story. And he writes that if Wilson stays healthy, the Broncos will end this story with a winning record in the AFC West (which they haven’t done since 2015).

Four Denver Post writers gave their Broncos predictions and some explanations in this article. Three of them challenged 11-6 and one went 10-7.
