The schedule will be released tomorrow night at 8pm, per Adam Schefter:
Quote:

NFL regular-season schedule will be released, at 8 p.m. ET Tuesday on ESPN networks.


What are your hopes for the Patriots?

I'm thinking their first game will be the Steelers at home to open the NFL season. The Eagles and Bills would be the only alternates I could think of.

Hopefully we'll get 4 primetime games in addition to the opener.

I can see the Steelers being the opener, the only other real contender is the Eagles - and they probably won't do an inter-conf game as the opener.

As for primetime games - Dallas, Eagles, Colts and Broncos are the main contenders. I would Denver and Dallas are the favorites.

They'll have a TNF game somewhere - and they are usually division games. So lets say Buffalo.

A more even spread would be nice - the murderer's row of opponents in the middle of last year was brutal. Saying that, it probably helped them prepare for the play-offs.

Yeah, I acutally wouldn't mind getting an AFC South game or two at the end of the season. The last three weeks will be divisional, but maybe early December.

Last season, we got 5 primetime games, which was awesome. I assume we get the NFC East and AFC South rotation this year. I think we'll get Dallas on Thanksgiving. Would like to see a game on Thursday with Miami.

Wouldn't playing on thanksgiving cancel out playing on another Thursday?

Correct. They're not going to play Thanksgiving given that they will be opening on Thursday (unless the NFL has changed their scheduling procedures unbeknownst to everyone)

I'd actually be pretty surprised if we don't play the Bills in the opener. Other than that, I'd like the primetime games to be the Broncos, Cowboys, Dolphins, and Steelers.

Don't think the opening Thursday would count since it's the first game of the year and they wouldn't have a short week leading up to it. So if they don't play a traditional TNF game the rest of the season, there's no reason to think they couldn't play on Thanksgiving. Of course, some confirmation would clear things up.

Looking at the past few seasons, it looks like you're right - the Super Bowl champs have played a few times on Thanksgiving as well as opening night.

Really hope that's not the case this year though. I really don't want to see a Patriots afternoon Thanksgiving game

Bills aren't good for TV ratings.

Leaked schedule going around has us opening the year with the Steelers. I'll definitely be in attendance to see that banner get raised.

Just came in to post this - according to the "leaked" schedule the TNF game will be Thanksgiving night against the Broncos.

I'd be surprised if the Patriots have three short weeks like they do in this "leaked schedule."

It's definitely bunk. He has their last game as "January 3, 2015."
