    Pats leak 2009 schedule

    Pats Leaked Their Schedule?
    Posted by Mike Florio on April 1, 2009, 9:33 a.m. EDT

    A league source recently told us that the NFL could accelerate the release of the 2009 regular-season schedule, if portions of it were to be leaked.

    As a reader points out, the New England Patriots apparently have busted the dam. At least as it relates to their own schedule.

    Now appearing on the team’s official web site is what appears to be the specific order in which the Patriots will play their games, with the only missing information the time for kickoff.

    Though the bye week isn’t mentioned, the league typically gives the teams that play in England the following week off.

    So if Week Eight will be the Pats’ bye week, and if the list posted on the team’s web site wasn’t merely random, here’s the week-by-week schedule.

    Week One (Monday, September 14): Bills.

    Week Two (September 20-21): at Dolphins.

    Week Three (September 27-28): Jets.

    Week Four (October 4-5): at Broncos.

    Week Five (October 11-12): Ravens.

    Week Six (October 18-19): Falcons.

    Week Seven (Sunday, October 25): at Buccaneers (in London).

    Week Nine (November 8-9): at Jets.

    Week Ten (November 15-16): Dolphins.

    Week Eleven (November 22-23): at Texans.

    Week Twelve (November 29-30): at Colts.

    Week Thirteen (December 6-7): Panthers.

    Week Fourteen (December 13-14): Jaguars.

    Week Fifteen (December 20-21): at Saints.

    Week Sixteen (December 27-28): Titans.

    Week Seventeen (January 3): at Bills.

    Keep in mind that, in early November, NFL Network airs games on Thursday nights, and possibly on one late-season Saturday. So one or more of the games from Week Nine forward could be played on a day other than Sunday or Monday.

    Lately, the Colts-Pats have played on a Sunday afternoon in early November, at the start of the ratings “sweeps” period. This year, they square off on Thanksgiving weekend, in what could be one the Sunday night or Monday night game. (If it’s the Sunday evening game, it could be flexed out of the prime-time slot in the unlikely event that either or both teams have a poor record at that point in the season.)

    At this point, it’s unknown whether the list of games appearing on the Pats’ web site reflects the actual schedule, or whether some guy was just messing around and trying to guess the order of the games.

    Either way, we’ve got a feeling that the list will be disappearing soon

    Re: Pats leak 2009 schedule

    If it's true, that's a tough stretch from week 10 thru 13... and I'd probably prefer the Colts game not to be the second of consecutive road games.

    The last time the Pats started and ended the season with the Bills, the Pats won the Super Bowl. Hopefully it is a good sign.

    I hate to comment too much with it being completly unofficial but I do like getting the Jets at NY after a bye week plus Tenessee and Jax in NE in December.

    That's OK, it would be a chance to let them know right off the bat who's winning the division this year - and it's not the Dolphins.

    Re: Pats Schedule leaked ?

    1st 3 games are division games dammit. I know,I know but still. Then after London we have 2 division games again. Plus I think it stinks having the opener on a Monday nite though I heard somewhere it's going to be at 7pm which is a LOT better than 9:)

    Thanks to both OP's who posted the schedule,I'm feelin' b*tchin already:woohoo:

    From Florio:

    UPDATE: We’re told that this isn’t the actual schedule, and that someone at the team’s web site plugged them in randomly to complete the grid.

    In addition to that, there is this:

    Florio now says this is not the schedule, just some overzealous .com employee filling out a grid.

    Re: Pats Schedule leaked ?

    Yeah if you look at the site it says that only two actual game dates are known (the Bills opener and the Bucs game) in the actual news article. Plus the schedule shows the first 8 games at home and the last 8 away, so it's gotta just be a random list.

    Yea, I agree but ya know - The deal could be that it might have been the schedule and Fred and Chris just got their ass in a whole bunch of trouble.

    Right, but the original list list was NOT that way - There is a possibility that it was correct as originaly posted.

    I don't know, I'm just sayin'.

    Re: Pats leak 2009 schedule

    Week One (Monday, September 14): Bills.

    Pats own Bills and opening game at home. TO wouldn't have had time to implode the Bills yet so they have a chance.

    Week Two (September 20-21): at Dolphins.

    Heat will be a factor. Don't like this one.

    Week Three (September 27-28): Jets.

    Absolute destruction of recycled Ravens.

    Week Four (October 4-5): at Broncos.

    Rebuilt defense and rudderless offense. This is the year to play at Denver.

    Week Five (October 11-12): Ravens.

    Stripped down D and Ray-Ray not in a contract year.

    Week Six (October 18-19): Falcons.

    Glad this one is at home.

    Week Seven (Sunday, October 25): at Buccaneers (in London).

    Think it may rain? Fred Taylor pays off big in this one.

    Week Nine (November 8-9): at Jets.

    After a bye week, Pats end the Jets season before Thanksgiving.

    Week Ten (November 15-16): Dolphins.

    Not cool in NE yet. Again, don't like the schedule against the Fins.

    Week Eleven (November 22-23): at Texans.

    Should be their year to make a step up. Pats DBs better be ready to cover Andre Johnson.

    Week Twelve (November 29-30): at Colts.

    In what has become a competitive division, Colts should have half the team on the injury list by this point.

    Week Thirteen (December 6-7): Panthers.

    John Fox may not survive this long. Expect a drop-off for Carolina (which is why I want the Pats to get their 1st round pick in 2010).

    Week Fourteen (December 13-14): Jaguars.

    Have no idea what Jags will look like. They smell like a team that will come out of nowhere to have a surprisingly good season. Glad this is at home.

    Week Fifteen (December 20-21): at Saints.

    Assuming Saints are in the hunt for division/playoffs, this will be tough. Hopefully the Pats won't be needing this win.

    Week Sixteen (December 27-28): Titans.

    Titans should be competitive but not enough to win at Pats.

    Week Seventeen (January 3): at Bills.

    Having a full season to put Edwards into the fetal position and turn Lee Evans into a diva, the Pats won't need the starters for this one.

    I wouldn't call this soft, but it seems certainly managable to get a #1 or #2 seed in the AFC. Will admit the schedule could turn out to be serious cake if the teams in transition (Jets, Broncos, Ravens, Bucs, Colts) have normal growing pains.

    The full schedule will be out soon but we have a few days to go. Last year the NFL schedule was announced on April 15th, and in 2007 it was announced April 11th.

    Remember, the powers that be at Patriots.com are the same geniuses who hired Tom Casale to a for-pay job.

    No more need be said.
