The Denver Broncos play their first home game of the 2022 NFL season on Sunday, facing off against the Houston Texans in the afternoon.

Time: Sunday, Sept. 18, 2:25 p.m. Mountain Time
Location: Empower Field at Mile High, Denver
TV: CBS
Radio: KOA 850 AM | 94.1 FM
Stream: Paramount+
Pregame and postgame show: 104.3 The Fan broadcasts right up until kickoff and as soon as the final whistle sounds, while DenverFan.com also hosts digital shows that will air at 12:30 p.m. and right after the game on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.

The television broadcast will be voiced by Andrew Catalon, James Lofton and Michael Grady.

Here is the local coverage map of CBS’ late-window games from 506 Sports; the green is the Broncos-Texans game: 

The Broncos are coming off a Week 1, 17-16 loss to Seattle, while Houston tied in their first game. The Broncos are huge favorites in the matchup.

The talk of this game is Russell Wilson, the new star quarterback of the Broncos, who spent a decade in Seattle and had a nice debut for Denver. But now he’s making his Denver debut after not playing in the preseason.

The Broncos are 5-3 (3-2 at home) all-time against the Texans; their last meeting was in 2019 when Denver defeated Houston at home 38-24.

A win would get the Broncos back to .500 at 1-1.

The Broncos continue their season next week at home, hosting the Texans; you can see the entire schedule here.
