National Football League to release 2017 schedule on Thursday

National Football League to release 2017 schedule on Thursday

The Chiefs kick off the season in the NFL's season-opening contest against the Patriots in New England on September 7th. Statistically, the Jaguars do play better in London: they are 2-2 there in the past four years and 13-47 everywhere else.

On Oct. 2, the Chiefs host the Washington Redskins on Monday Night Football, the first of two Monday Night contests.

That first Thursday Night Football matchup will probably feature the Patriots, though. "We've already started preparation for these teams and we know we have a lot of great challenges ahead of us".

Their opponents are expected to win between seven and eight games, on average, with just one, the Steelers in Week 15, projected to win 10 or more games during the season. In Week 7, the Chiefs travel to Oakland to take on the Raiders on Thursday Night Football. Kansas City will play six prime-time games. There's a tradition of putting the Super Bowl champion in the first game of the year, but, like, I'd watch the Browns play. But none will compete with the Falcons' highly anticipated trip to New England in one of the biggest games of the entire season. The bye came in Week 5 a year ago. A year ago the Thursday nighter shifted to New Era Field (formerly Ralph Wilson Stadium) in Week 2, with the Jets coming home with the 37-31 success. Three of those come in October versus the Texans, the Raiders and the Broncos. Clark Hunt wants earlier home games when the weather is nice but once again they're given three December home games. Isn't that neat? I'm sure the intent of this rule is to lock in marquee matchups for TV - each division victor also plays each division victor, so too for second- and third-place finishers - but I like that it makes life easier for the bottom-feeders.
