Wallyhorse posted a topic in Around the NFLNot a surprise because this has been rumored for some time: Suspect they did that knowing if they opened with the Pats in that game, Chiefs and Saints fans would be very upset because they felt they were both robbed and that Super Bowl win carries a huge asterisk (not to mention what has come out since against Robert Kraft). Pats will play Week 1 Sunday night opener against an opponent to be determined. I would have myself had the Pats open on the road in Week 1 and then play their home opener in Week 2 on Thursday night that also would have been on NBC and treated as if it were the season opening game as this would fully compensate NBC for losing the Week 17 Sunday Nighter in 2017. FOX/NFL Network would have been compensated for losing the Week 2 Thursday nighter by getting EITHER: A "Black Friday" game in London with a 2:30 PM ET (7:30 PM local time) kickoff (and the Premier League plays mid-week fixtures so the NFL could do a Friday night game in London). If this were done, teams would get their bye week ahead of this game. OR A Week 15 or 16 Friday Night game that would have teams playing that game getting their bye week in Week 14 or 15.
