For the seventh consecutive year, the Broncos will open their football season at home.

The Broncos will start the 2017 season by taking on the Los Angeles Chargers at Mile High on Monday, September 11, according to Broncos Insider Mike Klis. 

The Chargers are calling Los Angeles home for the first time since the 1960 debut season of the American Football League. They were the San Diego Chargers from 1961 through the 2016 season when stadium issues caused the franchise to move to Los Angeles. They will simply be the Chargers for the season opener in Denver, where quarterback Philip Rivers will still be the Broncos' arch nemesis.

The question is: Who will be Rivers' opposing quarterback, Trevor Siemian or Paxton Lynch?

The NFL will release more details on the Broncos regular-season schedule at 6 p.m. Thursday.
