New England Patriots Schedule 2017 is out and the reigning Super Bowl Champions are ready to begin their sixth super bowl chase and 48th season in the National Football League.
Patriots will host the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday, September 7, kicking off as the NFL’s 2017 Weekend on NBC. Further, as part of a special star-packed pregame ceremony, the Patriots will reveal the Super Bowl LI championship banner. It is the third consecutive season the Patriots will open the season in prime time succeeding the 2015 Thursday Night Game hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers and 2016’s at Arizona on NBC’s Sunday Night Football. Both of which Tom Brady’ men won.
The Patriots seem to have a paved road back to the Big Game, as they are scheduled to play only five matchups against playoff teams, which includes the season opener against Kansas City and a Divisional Round rematch with Houston Sunday, September 24. New England’s much-anticipated matchup comes on Sunday night, October 22 when the Atlanta Falcons enter Gillette Stadium, Foxborough for a Super Bowl LI rematch.
But before the regular season, there are four preseason games lined up, starting on Thursday, August 10 against Jacksonville Jaguars.
