The schedule is out, the picks are made, and the roster is set. Now it's time to settle in and see how the 2017-18 season turns out for the Broncos. This year, five games will be simulcast on 9NEWS KUSA/KTVD Channel 20.
The station and ESPN announced an agreement that all Denver Broncos Monday night football games will play on KTVD for the 2017-18 season, in addition to ESPN.
9NEWS President and General Manager Steve Carter said, "As a Broncos fan, this is a great day. We get to see our hometown team play on national television no fewer than five times this year."
