The schedule is out! Rejoice!
Some of the big matchups include:
- The Philadelphia Eagles will open defense of their Super Bowl championship when they host the Atlanta Falcons in the traditional Thursday night opener. The Week 1 Sunday nighter will see the Bears visit the Packers, while the Monday night doubleheader will pit the Jets against the Lions in Detroit, then the Rams at the Raiders in Oakland.
- The international games include a trio of contests in London: Seahawks "at" Raiders at Tottenham Hotspurs Stadium at 1 p.m. EST in Week 6; Titans "at" Chargers at Wembley Stadium at 9:30 a.m. EST in Week 7; and Eagles "at" Jaguars, also at Wembley at 9:30 a.m., in Week 8.
- The final international game will be at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City, with the Chiefs "at" the Rams on Monday night in Week 11.
- The Thanksgiving triple-header in Week 12 will see the Bears at the Lions, Washington at the Cowboys, and the Falcons at the Saints.
- Other notable Sunday night games include the Cowboys at the Texans in a battle for Texas in Week 5, Aaron Rodgers squaring off against Tom Brady when the Packers visit New England in Week 9, and Richard Sherman's return to Seattle when the 49ers play the Seahawks in Week 13.
- The Monday night game in Week 16 will see Denver visit Oakland on Christmas Eve. This will be Oakland's last regular-season home game this year, and perhaps their last game ever in Oakland -- they could move to Las Vegas as early as 2019.
