Road Warriors

The NFL released the 2005 schedule yesterday, and today's Boston Globe breaks down the Patriots schedule. After opening at home, they play four of their next five games on the road before their bye week. Season ticket holders who like one o'clock ET kickoffs will be disappointed again this year, since the Pats will play just four home games at that time this season: weeks 4, 11, 15 (actually 1:30), and 17.

New England will not play an AFC East team until Week 8 (Buffalo). That's a plus if the Patriots follow their usual pattern of finishing strong. It also gives the new coaching staff a chance to jell before playing games that affect divisional tie-breakers.
