On the Patriots' official website this morning, there was a listing of what appeared to be the team's schedule for the 2009 season (note: the original link has been altered).
The link was pointed out by Mike Florio of profootballtalk.com, and forwarded to us by a Boston.com reader.
After following up with the Patriots, I was told that this is not the order in which the Patriots' games will be played (a team staffer randomly picked the games using the same template as the year before).
Soon enough, we'll find out if that was the case.
The NFL usually releases its schedule in early to mid April.
