Earlier today, Peyton Manning decided to join the Denver Broncos, sending the NFL world into a frenzy. The Denver fan base is ecstatic, the Tennessee Titans and San Francisco 49ers fan bases are trying to figure out what went wrong, and the Miami Dolphins fan base continues to fall into the depths of despair.

But, there is some good news when it comes to Manning going to Denver. And, that's the schedule.

The NFL is set to release the full schedule sometime next month, but the list of every team's opponents has been known since January. The AFC East is not scheduled to face the entire AFC West next year, instead each team will only face one team from that division. With the league's process of matching teams by where they finished the previous season's standings, the Dolphins will not be facing the Manning led Broncos.

However, the New England Patriots will. Next season, the NFL will once again have a Peyton Manning vs. Tom Brady matchup, with the Patriots hosting the Broncos. That means that Manning will be facing the Patriots, while the Dolphins are scheduled to face the Oakland Raiders.

As the Broncos improve from their 8-8 division wining record from last year, thanks to Manning, the Patriots are the only AFC East team that has to worry about them.

Any bets on if the Broncos at Patriots game gets placed on Monday Night Football next year?
