The New England Patriots' 2018 schedule will not be officially released until later today. However, there have already been multiple leaks up to a point where The Athletic's Jeff Howe posted the whole thing.

Let's take a look at it:

Week 1: vs Houston Texans (Sunday, September 9, 1:00 PM)

Week 2: at Jacksonville Jaguars (Sunday, September 16, 4:25 PM)

Week 3: at Detroit Lions (Sunday, September 23, 8:20 PM)

Week 4: vs Miami Dolphins (Sunday, September 30, 1:00 PM)

Week 5: vs Indianapolis Colts (Thursday, October 4, 8:20 PM)

Week 6: vs Kansas City Chiefs (Sunday, October 14, 8:20 PM)

Week 7: at Chicago Bears (Sunday, October 21, 1:00 PM)

Week 8: at Buffalo Bills (Monday, October 29, 8:15 PM)

Week 9: vs Green Bay Packers (Sunday, November 4, 8:20 PM)

Week 10: at Tennessee Titans (Sunday, November 11, 1:00 PM)

Week 11: BYE WEEK

Week 12: at New York Jets (Sunday, November 25, 1:00 PM)

Week 13: vs Minnesota Vikings (Sunday, December 2,4:25 PM)

Week 14: at Miami Dolphins (Sunday, December 9, 1:00 PM)

Week 15: at Pittsburgh Steelers (Sunday, December 16, 4:25 PM)

Week 16: vs Buffalo Bills (Sunday, December 23, 1:00 PM)

Week 17: vs New York Jets (Sunday, December 30, 1:00 PM)

Overall, this is a very good schedule for the Patriots: The bye week is in a very good spot, there are no obviously brutal stretches and the team will not play any primetime games after week nine. And will there will be five nationally televised contests before that, New England can certainly be happy with the schedule makers' work.
