While Stephon Gilmore and the Patriots’ defense will square off against Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill and Kansas City’s tough running game.

The Patriots then have a few extra days of rest before traveling down to Bourbon Street to play the Saints in New Orleans, they then square off against two more exciting NFC South quarterbacks in Cam Newton and Jameis Winston. The most hyped game on the schedule will be the Super Bowl LI rematch on October 22nd at home against the Atlanta Falcons.

Things get tough after the bye week when the have to travel to Denver — where the Patriots have historically struggled — then to Mexico City to play the Oakland Raiders.

After a quick trip home, they then head on the road for three straight, with the road finale coming against the Steelers. The Patriots then wrap up their season with back-to-back-to-back bye weeks against the Bills and Jets, before their annual week off during Wildcard Weekend.
