The 2017 season is nearly here! How will the New England Patriots do in every game in the regular season? Check out our predictions below!
Week 1: Home vs. Kansas City Chiefs
The first game of the season for the New England Patriots will be on Thursday Night Football. This will obviously be a special game for the Patriots as they raise their fifth banner. While the Super Bowl celebration will be fun, this is also an important game early on in the season.
Last year, the Chiefs were the AFC West Champions, and they will be looking to defend their crown out West. The Chiefs will be entering New England with the hope of making an early statement against the defending champions.
With the road in the AFC projected to go through New England once again, the Chiefs will be hoping to give the Patriots an early loss. For New England, they are no stranger to playing big games to start the season. Week 1 against the Chiefs will be no different.
The Patriots are generally one of the most prepared teams heading into Week 1, thanks to Bill Belichick and the outstanding coaching staff. Even with the Super Bowl celebration. Expect to see the Patriots focused on beating a talented Chiefs team. The Chiefs had one of the best defenses in the NFL last season, and they will certainly pose a threat to New England. However, home-field will be big in this one.
