Check this out on Logan Mankins.Probably a smokescreen?
Also two questions about our schedule. So next season we will play the NFC East and the AFC West. Obviously the out of division matchups rotate home vs away depending on where you are in the cycle, for example we played the NFC East in 2007, Giants and Cowboys (giants in London but it was a "home" game) and Washington and Philly away so this season that will rotate. In the AFC it is a 3 year schedule because we are one of the divisions and that rotates, plus 2 seed games. We finished 3rd in division so we will play the two teams with the same record not in the AFC WEst. (Houston and Cleveland)
So home games will be
Buffalo, NYJ, NE, Washington, Philly, Denver, Oakland and either the AFC South or AFC North seeded team.
Buffalo, NYJ, NE, NYG, Dallas, KAnsas City, San Diego, and the other seeded game that isnt home.
My question is are we playing Houston Home or Cleveland home, and how that system works or if it is random. I know that an entire division plays the seed games either home vs away together, for example the AFC East played The AFC North seed games all home and AFC West away, but what about next season.
And two on what date is the schedule released in April? As far as dates.
Update: I contacted the NFL about the Oakland raiders vs KC cheifs ordeal.
The way the structure works we should be playing KC at home and Oakland on the road. We play in conference divisions on a 3 year cycle, excluding 'seed". We played Oakland in 08 at home and SD at home, So this year it switches, same in the other conference, typically thats how it works. The NFL informed me that Oakland and KC for some reason have been switched in the entire AFC East.
Meaning the Pats who played KC at home in 08 will play them again at home, Oakland at Home.
Jets will be KC at home, Oakland on the road
Bills At KC, Oakland on the road, The same as 2008 for Oakland and KC. This is the first fluctuation in scheduling ever btw.
Our NFC East games remain the same, and The AFC EAST will play the AFC South seed games at Home and the AFC North seed games away. That remains the same.
