National Football League to reveal the Saints 2017 schedule Thursday night

National Football League to reveal the Saints 2017 schedule Thursday night

The Steelers weren't particularly competitive in the AFC championship game at New England.

The most hard stretch for any team belongs to the Raiders, who will play five teams between Weeks 11 and 15 that had a combined.738 winning percentage in 2016.

There are requisite home-and-home slates against the AFC West, a full turn in the AFC and NFC East.

The Super Bowl champion New England Patriots will open the 2017 National Football League season at home against the Kansas City Chiefs. The nationally televised game that night will feature the New York Giants against the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium.

The NFL confirmed the news that the regular season schedule will be released this Thursday, April 20, at 5 p.m. PT. Statistically, the Jaguars do play better in London: they are 2-2 there in the past four years and 13-47 everywhere else. Derek Carr and Marcus Mariota broke ankles on the same day last season. Seasons will start in the same game.

Week 2: Sunday, Sept. 17, vs.

A visit by the newly-relocated Los Angeles Chargers will be October 29 (1 p.m.), followed by the bye week, which comes at exactly the same time in the schedule as a year ago. Good defense, but still no quarterback... Always a tough test in Denver.

Five games will be held overseas, beginning with Baltimore vs. Jacksonville in London on September 24. Raiders won the last two.

The NFL takes all teams requests into consideration each season but there is never guarantees.

The Patriots also will host the defending NFC champion Atlanta Falcons in a Super Bowl rematch in a nationally televised night game Sunday, Oct. 22. Chiefs doing the same this time around. Weeks 9 and 10 are the sweet spots for byes, in my opinion; you're well into the season and could use the rest, and there's still enough meaningful football left so you can shake off any residual rust that may come from taking the week off. Can they do it again?

Week 11: Sunday, Nov. 19, vs. New England at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City, 1:25 p.m. (CBS) Comment: Thought this might've been a primetime game.

From playoff rematches to players returning to their former home, the league's 256 games over four months should give us a little of everything.

Jets at Raiders, Sept. 17 at 3:05 p.m. New York Giants 1:25 p.m. (FOX) Comment: The Raiders have a stacked schedule. This one is sneaky tough.

Now that we know who the Patriots will be playing and when, we can do a deeper dive and see how things look at this early point in the year. The Los Angeles Rams and Arizona Cardinals play their London game Oct. 22, and the Cleveland Browns face the Vikings on Sunday, Oct. 29, in England. Excellent matchup between two rising powers.

This game is being served up on a silver platter for Carson Wentz and the Eagles.
