Patriots Talk: Pre-Season Schedule for the 2017 NFL Season

 

The New England Patriots pre-season schedule for this year was released on Monday. The games for next season will be split evenly between two home games and two away games. All current exact dates have yet to be released at this time. The estimated dates will be posted down to give a indication of what week they will be likely schedule at.

 

  • Week 1: vs. Jaguars (Between August 10th-14th)
  • Week 2: @ Texans (Between August 17th-21st)
  • Week 3: @ Lions (Between August 24th-27th)
  • Week 4: vs. Giants (Between August 31st-Sept. 1st)

 

Like the Patriots, many NFL teams will likely rest most of their immediate starting players by the final game of the NFL preseason to minimize the chances of any major injuries. (i.e. Malcolm Mitchell, the rookie receiver  who was picked with 112th pick in the 2016 draft, was put out for the first few weeks with injury during his first pre-season game against the New Orleans Saints)

 

 

As of now, the games will all be presented only on local broadcasting through WBZ-TV and Patriots Preseason Network. All will be available in all six New England States during broadcast. The live radio broadcast for all the Patriots games will also be hosted on 98.5 The Sports Hub.

Obviously one major notice is that the Patriots are, once again, playing against the New York Giants for the 13th straight year. (dating all the way back to 2004 NFL season) It is seen as a joke with how often the Patriots play against the Giants. (not even mentioning the Super Bowls) With the Patriots walking into the 2017 season with high expectations, this will be an interesting pre-season too see if the Patriots can build the team to make a repeat attempt at the Super Bowl. The full NFL schedule will be released in the next two weeks.

State of Trifecta Network

The last two months have been a whirlwind. There are no words that can truly describe what has happened to us as a website.

We went from a site that was getting an average of 2-3k viewers a week to getting that in a single day on average since the start of June. Since the start of June, we have been a credentialed member of the media to several of the teams in the area and look to increase that in the Fall.

Ultimately everything we create is meant to be read/consumed by our readers, you.  Often it is tough to get a vibe on what is or isn’t working in terms of content. That is why we would greatly appreciate if you guys give your thoughts in the comment section of this post to help us curate better content.

One thing we are looking forward to in the Fall is more reader/writer interactions. We will start doing Q and A’s related to all the Boston sports teams as well as a live Fantasy Football podcast where we will take your lineup questions.

The launch of the Fantasy podcast has yet to be decided, but expect it ahead of week 1 of the NFL season with a draft podcast. We will also be launching a Fantasy Football league to run alongside it if interested in joining fill out the contact form below with your information.

Trifecta Network is a growing platform, we will always be free and made for our readers. We appreciate your readership and want to build the best product we can to ensure the best Boston sports experience in the city.

You may have noticed more video content on the site, it is an area we are looking to improve, but not focus solely on. Many sports sites are going away from traditional writing, a move that I believe is a mistake.

If you ever have any thoughts or comments please feel free to reach out to us.
