"The worse New England has gotten on defense, the better Brady has been forced to become -- with 109 touchdowns, 20 interceptions and a 39-9 record the past three seasons. "
I could envision another 14-2 season with this schedule depending on how quick the offense comes along and the status of Gronk for opening day/draft pics, etc. But the potential is there with a lot of winnable games on paper. Vikes early will have A.P. but likely no chemistry in passing game. Will Fork be ready week 1?
I would have preferred to play Denver After the bye but either way, the bye is in a good spot in terms of almost middle of season. Ideal. This schedule should once again make us shoe ins for a division title and maybe a bye but how will this team perform in postseason? what will this teams Identity be? Will Amendola show us why he was brought here? Lots of questions but I like the schedule.

Like the schedule, except for one thing. So many night games. It's hard when you are watching from six timezones away. 2.30 am is brutal - and not conducive for being productive at work the next day. Lol.
There are some good teams they'll play. All the other AFC playoff teams plus GB is tough. Could be special if they are healthy, and boost the lines and SS.

In response to DougIrwin's comment:
Hasselbeck on ESPN claims NE will win just 11 games. LMAO
Don't take it personally, Rusty, just a talking head's opinion. What will you do if someone projects only 10 wins? Plus, Leon will say the Pats will be lucky to go 8-8, right? (-;

Like the schedule (except the night games) and like the Pats' chances in the division and for the playoffs. Apparently they're already working on Miami but I'm sure Miami is already working on the Pats.

What's with all the 1pm games? Gotta think some of those will be move to at least the 4ish time schedule.

Tough schedule with some tough games down the stretch. Interesting season ahead..

Pats come to town in less than five months.
I'm pumped. It's going to be hot as hell at 1pm in Miami in September, but whatever. Can't wait.

For those of us who live outside New England, the night games and flex scheduling really sux . . . hard to make travel plans in advance when you don't know the start time . . . and night games force an overnight stay after the game and require time off from work the next day. Wish all home games were at 1 pm on Sunday . . .
