Vikings 2017 Schedule Release Set for 7 pm (CT) April 20

New England Patriots defensive lineman Alan Branch tosses his gloves to a fan after their 26-10 victory over the Los Angeles Rams in an NFL football game Sunday Dec. 4 2016 in Foxborough Mass

Two games on the road to open a season hasn't happened for the Green & White since 1992. The Browns and Jaguars are the only teams this season that won't face a short week and who won't have to tweak their weekly schedules at all to accommodate alternate game days or times. So there's that. As for the Ravens, you can say this much: They haven't taken their playoff absences lightly.

The rematch of Super Bowl LI against the Atlanta Falcons will have to wait until October 22, a Sunday-night NBC game at home. They'll have an NFL-high four games against teams coming off their bye and a net total of minus-22 days of rest compared to their opponents.

In week seven, Twickenham hosts its second National Football League game with the Los Angeles Rams again the home team, taking on the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, October 22 at 6pm.

Week 5 (Oct. 8) @ Texans, 7:30 p.m.

The Falcons and Patriots played each other in Super Bowl 51.

Atlanta plays every team it faced in the postseason en route to the Super Bowl a year ago.

Trump team to debate future of Paris agreement
Some coal companies and Republicans believe Obama's Paris pledge can be substituted with subsidies emissions control technology. Environmental groups want Washington to remain in the Paris agreement, even if the new administration weakens USA pledges.

The Patriots also finalized their preseason schedule, which starts at home against Jacksonville on August 10, a 7:30 p.m. start.

The Broncos may still be figuring out their quarterback situation, but they still have one of the league's elite defenses and remain one of the Patriots' biggest conference rivals, despite missing the playoffs last season. Previous year the Thursday nighter shifted to New Era Field (formerly Ralph Wilson Stadium) in Week 2, with the Jets coming home with the 37-31 success.

The other anticipated highlight of the season will come on November 19, when the Patriots will travel to Mexico City's Azteca Stadium to face the Oakland Raiders, a 4:25 p.m. start.

This game will be intriguing for the mere fact that it comes on a neutral site against the Raiders. September 17 1:00 p.m. They have the aforementioned 13 games scheduled for Sunday at 1 p.m. ET - their most since 13 one-o'clockers in 1978 in the first year of 16-game schedules.

The season opener for the defending Super Bowl-champion Patriots will have a distinct hometown feel to it. The next weekend, on Sunday, October 1, the Dolphins host the Saints at Wembley at 2.30pm. That game against Oakland, given the location and the strength of opponent, might be the toughest game on New England's schedule. The Miami Dolphins think they may have a shot at the AFC East in 2017, and Week 14 on Monday Night Football in Miami could be their chance to really make their presence felt in the division.
