New England Patriots 2011 Schedule Includes Three Road Games In First Month

The official releases of the 2011 New England Patriots schedule is not until 7 p.m. Tuesday night, but little by little, parts of it continue to leak out.

We'e already learned that the Pats will be hosting AFC East Divisional rival New York Jets in Week 5, and now, via tweets from the Patriots' official Twitter account, we know that not only will New England open the 2011 season on the road, but three of its first four games will be away from Gillette Stadium. 

Through the power of deduction and basic math, that means that the Patriots will have seven of their final 12 games at home, where they haven't lost a regular season game since Nov. 30, 2008. And that one loss was with Matt Cassel at quarterback. With a healthy Tom Brady, the Pats have not lost in the regular season at Gillette since Nov. of 2006 (28 straight, counting the Chiefs game).

From 2006-10, the Patriots lead the league with a 34-6 mark at home. In fact, since 2000, New England is 61-19 (.763) at home, the best mark in the NFL during that time (the Colts are 60-20).
