NFL Announces 2016 Schedule, Patriots to Open in Arizona

By on April 15, 2016 in ,

The National Football League announced its 2016 regular season schedule on Thursday night, and tickets are now officially for sale at Ace!

Based on last season’s results, the Patriots have the ninth toughest schedule in the NFL in 2016, and will kick off their season with a Sunday night game at the Arizona Cardinals on September 11. Arizona won the NFC West last season with an impressive 13-3 record, but got blown out by the eventual Super Bowl champions, the Carolina Panthers, 49-15 in the NFC Championship.

New England will open Gillette Stadium the following week, when they host the Miami Dolphins on September 18. Other games to circle on the calendar are a Week 10 Super Bowl XLIX rematch against the Seattle Seahawks at Gillette Stadium and a Week 15 2015 AFC Championship rematch against the Denver Broncos at Mile High Stadium.
