Patriots kickoff season September 7 against Chiefs

After an 11-5 regular season and numerous records set in the process, the Falcons made a run all the way to Super Bowl LI.

One of the more curious parts of the Patriots' schedule is the fact that the divisional games are all more or less clustered together late in the year. The New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs will open the season that Thursday, and neither is on the 49ers schedule.

Four NFL games will be played in London during the 2017 season. And perhaps even a sixth Super Bowl title. Or are you just flipping on the TV and falling asleep from tryptophan?

All in all, New England plays nine games in the 1 p.m. slot and five games in primetime, including the season opener.

Assuming all of these teams return to the field near to their 2016 forms, these rematches should make for some great games in 2017. The other is against the Ravens, who went 8-8 previous year and aren't exactly star-filled. The Chiefs play at the Giants, Bills and Jets in three consecutive weeks.

In their first season together in the Los Angeles market, the Rams and Chargers will play at the same day and time for almost half of their home schedules. The schedule was later confirmed by other outlets. A mini-bye to start the season, in the middle of the season and the real bye. For all the times I criticize the National Football League, I thought I'd point out one thing they do that I really like.

The stretch begins with trips to Denver and Mexico City to play the Raiders.

The oddsmakers in Las Vegas are certainly taking notice. Coach Adam Gase sparked Miami's first playoff appearance in eight years, and there is every reason to consider the Dolphins a playoff team in 2017.

Also like last season, this will be considered a "home" game for the Raiders.
