Jimmy G comes back to Foxboro ... and, of course, facing TB12 and the Chargers

Home slate is awesome. Road schedule is A LOT of mileage. Hope to see one of those 2 weeks in a row scenarios where they can stay out West for Rams and Seattle.

Defense will be put to the test. They have to face Lamar Jackson, Patrick Mahomes, Russell Wilson, Deshaun Watson, Jimmy G, Kyler Murray, and Josh Allen.
Even better would be to book both LA games back to back and just stay there for a week.

If Brady is still here, I think the SNF games will be vs. Ravens, at Seattle, and at Rams. I think Fox will protect the 49ers game and CBS protects the KC game. I could see a Thursday game either a divisional game or the AZ game as the league wants to get Kyler Murray in primetime.

Nice for us west coasters I guess.
Eh, I prefer the 1PM Eastern games that I can roll out of bed for and then have my whole afternoon in front of me afterwards.

That said, looks like I need to finally get myself to a Hawks game.

Swapping out this year’s NFC East round-robin for the NFC West makes for a much tougher schedule. Three of the four teams in the West would be easily the best in the East, and the Cardinals won’t be a pushover.

Based on this year's records the Patriots have the NFL's toughest schedule next season. The entire AFC East is in top 5. (Yes, I know why).

The easiest? The Ravens.

Given the gift that the Patriots received from this year's rotation of opposing divisions (NFC East and AFC North), this seems like 2019 luck being balanced out a bit in 2020.

Peter King has a couple of scheduling nuggets in his column today.

--There may be an issue with Kansas City hosting the Thursday night opener on 9/10 at 7:20 CT. The Royals have an afternoon game scheduled that day at 12:35 CST and they share parking lots. He thinks they could open up with either the Texans or Raiders.

--He thinks Week 1 SNF will be at SoFi Stadium in LA and mentions Cowboys at Rams.

--With the Centennial Class of the HOF going on on September 18th, the possibility of the Browns hosting a Week 2 Thursday night game against the Eagles is high. Both teams have Centennial Class HOFers going in and the proximity to Canton can't be overlooked .

Ravens had this same problem several years ago, and they were able to resolve it if I recall correctly. Just a matter of the NFL probably needing to grease the wheels a bit. Not sure what they had to do it to resolve it during the Ravens/Orioles thing.

haha... I swear there was another one then that didn’t involve the team playing on the road. If not, just a bad memory chip. I’ll get it checked out.
