The full 2017 NFL schedule will be released Thursday night, but Thursday morning the Patriots released their preseason slate with dates and times.
The opponents were announced earlier, but now we know the dates and times.
Week 1: Thursday, August 10 vs. Jaguars 7:30
Week 2: Saturday, August 19 at Texans 8:00
Week 3: Friday, August 25 at Lions 7:00
Week 4: Thursday, August 31 vs. Giants 7:30
The Patriots and Texans reportedly have been rumored to be working on joint practices before their game in Week 2 and there’s a chance the Jaguars and Patriots could work something out for Week 1, but that may be too early to hold them.
New England will open its regular-season slate at home on Thursday, September 7.
