Patriots open season hosting Chiefs on Thursday Night Football

White receives contract extension from Patriots

The Chiefs lost to the Patriots, 27-20, on January 16, 2016; Sherman caught one pass for a yard in the contest.

It starts with the Titans' trip to Pittsburgh in an overlooked game that could be huge as Tennessee competes for their first playoff spot since 2008. Whew! That's quite a bit. Not only does it mean the team is hosting the game as a Super Bowl champion, but it means a couple extra days of preparation for Week 2. The Chiefs play the Chargers on NFL Network Saturday night in Week 15. Also, the national television schedule will also be revealed. The Chiefs have not won at Foxborough since 1990, a stretch that includes six straight losses, including a playoff game in the 2015 season.

Check out the entire Chiefs schedule.

On the Sunday night, the Chargers will make their return to Los Angeles as they host the Miami Dolphins at the StubHub Center at 9.05pm. We already know all the matchups; they're just choosing the sequence. On a Thursday night. The past two years they've played the late Monday Night Football game Week 1, only to have to travel to the east coast to face one of the teams that played the earlier Thursday game. The last byes come in Week 11 so this is nearly as late as it gets. Instead both teams are taking 10-hour flights - 10-hour flights! - to London in the middle of the season. Last year, coming off a short week, New England was able to win a close contest. But from a big picture, the NFL has put the limited number of Los Angeles football fans in position to choose between teams for three of the eight weeks.

The Chiefs play the Giants off their bye.

Exhibit A: The New York Jets' 2017 schedule, released along with every other team's schedule by the league this evening. The Raiders will play five prime-time games this year. I'd kinda rather this be Oakland than Denver. Three of those come in October versus the Texans, the Raiders and the Broncos.
