  • NFL did that with the Broncos/Panthers rematch this year. Probs gonna do that again. I think NE wins comfortably in Foxboro.

    This. Pretty much a lock it will be one of these two. The Thursday night opener is never a divisional game, and they wouldn't have Carolina two years in a row. The only other possibility I see is the Texans, because of the JJ Watt star factor, but probably only if they get a high profile name as QB like Romo.

  • If the Texans trade JJ Watt for Jimmy Garrapollo, that would be a great opener.

  • It's between Atlanta and Kansas City, and the way the Super Bowl went.. I'd be floored if its not Atlanta.

  • I hope it's the Chiefs. It'd be pretty harsh to make the Falcons play their next competitive game in Foxboro.

    The NFL had no problems making the Panthers go to Denver.

    Looks like my darkhorse prediction was on the spot.


    Huh? It is not "spot on" until it happens. Can you at least wait till the NFL releases the schedule to pronounce your genius :D .

    This article is a big pile of turd and would not expect anything more from NBC.

    No, because if it doesn't then I have nothing to gloat about. I'll take gloating while I think I can. :D

    Funny how the Pats always have one of the league's perennially worst divisions in front of them.

    I wouldn't call that a conspiracy. The Bills, Jets, and Dolphins have been run by chuckleheads for years. The Bills gave the Patriots a first round pick for Bledsoe. The Dolphins let the Patriots fleece them for Welker.
    This is becoming far too common for my tastes.
