The NFL regular season is but a day old. Yet, it is never too early to think about the 2012 slate.

The 2012 regular-season opponents have been determined. Some of the games of interest (I’m sure some more will develop based on off-season developments) include a Broncos-Steelers playoff rematch in Denver, a John Fox return to Carolina, the Broncos’ nasty road slate and San Diego's visit to New Orleans.

Every AFC West team plays seven games against 2011 playoff teams. Below are the opponents for each AFC West team. A hat tip to the Chargers’ PR department for sending out the list:

1. Denver Broncos Home: Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders, San Diego Chargers, Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers, Houston Texans, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Away: Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders, San Diego Chargers, Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, New England Patriots, Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers

2. San Diego Chargers Home: Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders, Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, Tennessee Titans, Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers

Away: Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders, Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers, New York Jets, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

3. Oakland Raiders Home: Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, San Diego Chargers, Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers, Jacksonville Jaguars, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
