The team’s other home opponents — those who will actually travel to Gillette Stadium — are the Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, New York Jets, Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Chargers, Indianapolis Colts, Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Commanders.
In addition, the Patriots will travel on the road to play the Las Vegas Raiders, Denver Broncos, Pittsburgh Steelers, Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants. They also will play their division rivals, the Bills, Dolphins and Jets.
