    ..can they break down from a 7:30 PM Jimmy Buffet concert on September 8th in time to have a game on September 9th? I doubt it. according to Reiss that leaves us with the option of the Jets, Bills or Fins away.
    From Reiss:
    Here are the Patriots' options for season-opening opponents on Sept. 9:
    The Bengals, Colts, Cowboys, Giants and Ravens -- the Patriots' out-of-division road opponents in 2007 -- are all scheduled for nationally televised games opening weekend, while the Chargers are the lone out-of-division home opponent scheduled for a nationally televised game on opening weekend.

    Personally that leaves me hoping for the Bills since I'll be taking the trip up this year and a nice game in good weather would be welcome. Too bad it wouldn't be Labor day weekend but it's the week before.

    All that said it'll probably be the Jets since the Giants are visiting Dallas.

    They have new field turf so of course they can make it :)

    I'm actually thinking Miami will be the first away game, if any, because we played the Bills and Jets in the first 2 games of last year.

    Early September in Miami, baseball field problems, hot humid weather, 5 preseason games.

    Can't see them blowing Patriots at Jets on a 1:00 game. Bills would be nice but it seems that the Patriots are going to Miami in the heat.

    Marlins have a home game on the 10th. They have away stretches in the middle (16th) and end (30th) of the month(with regular season over after that with no game on Monday even if they make the Playoffs). I quickly looked back 3 years and couldn't find a regular season game the day after a football game. Miami looks to me to be a no.

    In '05 the Fins hosted Carolina on 9/25 then the Marlins played the Nats at home the next day.

    Hey man I catch a break since I make the trip to this game every year EXCEPT if it's early September (and I did say I looked at it quickly.:D)

    I think it will be away...when was the last opener away??? I really thought last year it would be...but it was they are due for an opener away..and THAT is OK....NOT Miami..that would not be good..I do NOT think Buff maybe a non-division game...but?? When I look at the teams available..Miami makes most sense...OR Jets..

    Ugh, 1994 and 1996 both began in Miami. Both were losses. The 1994 game was a classic Marino-Bledsoe shootout. The 96 game was a horrible showing.

    2003 began in Buffalo. 31-0 if I recall. Double ugh.
