Pats face Chiefs in National Football League season kickoff

Love them or hate them, Thursday Night Football games are here to stay.

The NFL released the entire 2017 schedule on Thursday and it is absolutely loaded with big-time matchups and potential for playoff-impacting results.

The NFL has announced its regular-season schedule for 2017, which opens with defending Super Bowl champions, the New England Patriots, hosting the Kansas City Chiefs. Pacific Time. The schedules will be revealed live on the NFL Network during a two-hour show. New York Jets 1:05 p.m. (CBS) Comment: Oakland's home opener comes against Gang Green...

Patriots at Steelers, Dec. 17 at 3:25 p.m. Maybe you want to know when your team will face off against division rivals, because those are can't-miss games.

Like Week 15, Week 7 doesn't have as much widespread firepower, but it does have a few drool-inducing matchups, led by a rematch of Super Bowl LI.

When you add those changes to the Jaguars' rehiring of Tom Coughlin, this time as executive vice president, you have reason to hope this game could be better than it appears. It's the Raiders' final home game of the regular season.

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.

Later in the season, the Patriots will play the Oakland Raiders in Mexico City on Sunday, Nov. 19. The preseason ends at home against the Giants on a Thursday night, August 31 (7:30 p.m.), giving the Patriots a full week to prepare for the opener against the Chiefs. Those teams had a combined.700 winning percentage last season, making the Bills' December the worst month that any team will face. I know a lot of folks love them, but I personally don't.

Their other Thursday-night game comes on October 5 at Tampa Bay, followed by a visit to MetLife Stadium to play the Jets at 1 p.m. October 22.

Four NFL games will be played in London during the 2017 season. The Chargers have already sold out their season tickets, so it's going to be a lot easier to find a seat for a Rams game at the Coliseum.
