The National Football League has announced its schedule for the 2017 regular season. Get hyped, y’all.
As is customary, the reigning Super Bowl champion New England Patriots will open the season on September 7 against the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday Night Football. In 2016, the NFL opened the season with a Super Bowl rematch between the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers (spoiler alert: the Broncos won again). The Atlanta Falcons were likely hoping for something similar as they must be hungry to avenge that embarrassing, Mortal Kombat-like soul-stealing defeat. Alas, it’s not meant to be.
Speaking of the Pats, though, they have retooled in a big way this offseason. Dwayne Allen, Stephon Gilmore, Brandin Cooks…Could they be even better in 2018? *Shudders
“The NFL season, the calendar is what it is,” Belichick said. “As of today, and as great as today feels and as great as today is, in all honesty, we’re five weeks behind in the 2017 season.”
Surprise, surprise: OddsShark has the Pats as the No. 1 favorite heading into the 2018 season. We’ll have weekly gambling advice for you once the season kicks off in a few month, but for now, the Pats are always a decent bet.
