2014 Patriots Schedule Will Be Released Tonight: What are your Primetime Predictions?

Jared Wickerham

The NFL will announce their 2014 regular season schedule tonight. How many primetime games will the Patriots have?

The NFL will hold its official schedule release at 8:00 PM ET tonight. Yes, really.

And while we do already know the opponents whom the Patriots will be playing, we don’t know what order that will be, when the Patriots will have their bye, and what games the Patriots will have on primetime.

As a reminder, the Patriots opponents are:

Home: Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, New York Jets, Denver Broncos, Oakland Raiders, Cincinnati Bengals, Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions

Away: Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, New York Jets, Kansas City Chiefs, San Diego Chargers, Indianapolis Colts, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings

On the morning of the release, I thought it could be a fun exercise to predict how many primetime games the Patriots will get, and who their opponents might be in those games.

Teams can be scheduled for a maximum of five primetime games. In 2013, the Patriots were initially scheduled for the maximum, but their week sixteen Sunday night game against the Ravens was flexed out. All teams must also play one Thursday night primetime game.
