The NFL announced the schedule for 2017 and the New England Patriots have an...interesting slate of games. Alec and Rich share an idea of why the league structured the Patriots’ schedule the way they did, while also predicting the team’s overall record for the year.
What is the most difficult stretch? There are three six-game stretches that catch the eye: 1) the Patriots face six-straight teams with excellent #1 and #2 receivers; 2) the Patriots play five of six on the road; and 3) the Patriots close the year with five of six games against the AFC East.
Alec and Rich also analyze the Mike Gillislee signing and what the Patriots need to accomplish in the NFL Draft and the following months.
