The Patriots schedule was set to be released tonight, but Jeff Howe of the Athletic Tweeted the full calendar this afternoon which will see New England open up against the Texans at 1pm on September 9th.

The Patriots will then play two-straight on the road, traveling to Jacksonville for what will be hyped as an AFC Championship rematch, with the game scheduled at 4:25. After that, it’s a trip to Detroit to battle Matt Patricia’s Lions in a prime-time game on Sunday night.
From there, the Patriots will play three weeks at home against the Dolphins, Colts (Thursday night game) and Chiefs (Sunday Night). Then they head out on the road for three of their next four games, playing two road games (Bears and Bills [Monday Night Football]), playing at home against the Packers on Sunday night, followed by a trip to Tennessee to play the Titans. Then they finally have a bye.
They close the season out playing three of four again on the road, traveling to MetLife Stadium to play the Jets, coming home for a game against the Vikings and then they’ll travel down to Miami to play the Dolphins, followed by a trip to Pittsburgh to play the Steelers. That should be a tough stretch, especially since at that point they’re into December and everyone will be battling for a postseason berth and playoff seeding.
They close out the season with two AFC East match-ups, facing the Bills and Jets to finish the season.
This marks at least the first step as we start trying to map out how things might go in 2018 but for now, it looks like we’re on to the Texans.
