I believe that after week 10, NBC can alter the games due to the flex schedule, so the 2nd Sunday night game, against the Chargers, could potentially be rescheduled.
Sunday night @ home vs Seattle and Monday night @ Carolina are set in stone though.
I like how just like last season, we can control our own divisional destiny. We play NO, Car, and Atl in weeks 13-15.
The Green Bay, Denver, Carolina, Seattle and Dallas stretch is a tough one, but 3 of those games are at home.
Since us season ticket holders are forced to buy preseason tix, at least we got games 2 and 3 of the preseason, the ones that the starters play the most. On top of that, NE and Jax are the opponents (better than Hou and Mia).
