Re: 2011 Patriots Schedule Released
THREE Sunday 1pm games? THREE?
Really? And one is on New Year's Day. Two of them are in the flex period.
It is possible the Patriots play one Sunday 1pm game.
So much for a Sunday afternoon schedule.
Starting on Monday night just delays the season as long as possible, if, in fact, they play on opening weekend.
I love starting at Miami at night, and having Miami in NE on Christmas eve. That sets up a potentially hot weather game in Miami, although the evening dulls the sun impact, and a cold weather game in NE.
Two home games to finish the season is nice. Home advantage if they need it to close out the AFC. Closing out Redskins, Broncos, Dolphins, Bills is nice if they need a four-game run.
I just wish they had a few normally scheduled games.
