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.
