Chiefs to play at Patriots in 2017 Kickoff game

The game is the second regular-season contest to be played in Mexico in two years, both with the Raiders as the home team. The Chiefs kick off the season in the NFL's season-opening contest against the Patriots in New England on September 7th.

Four NFL games will be played in London during the 2017 season. Or are you just flipping on the TV and falling asleep from tryptophan?

As for that finish, here's another big changeup: The Jets will conclude their 2017 campaign at New England with a 1 p.m. kickoff on New Year's Eve.

With a second high altitude game in the west one week after visiting Denver, the Patriots might opt to stay on the road instead of traveling back to New England again. The Redskins are no strangers to playing on Thanksgiving, doing so nine times before, but it'll be a different atmosphere with the game being in Thanksgiving. The other is against the Ravens, who went 8-8 past year and aren't exactly star-filled. The Raiders will play five prime-time games this year. They'll be at home this time as they try to do better. That could also make this game a candidate to get flexed to primetime, so don't set your schedules too strictly for this one. And yet, nothing really jumps out at me.

The Patriots will travel to Mexico City to face the defending AFC West Champion Oakland Raiders on November 19 as part of the NFL's International Series. There is a ton of awkwardness surrounding the team's final two seasons in Oakland as the franchise prepares to leave for Las Vegas. Atlanta beat Green Bay in last season's NFC Championship Game. New England will likely still be favored barring any drastic changes or injuries, but the Chiefs could lessen that seven-point spread with a good draft next week.
