The Pats only have to make one cross-country trip this season to play Seattle. They get to host the 49ers, the defending NFC West champ. The Bye week comes in about the middle of the season which gives New England an opportunity to break the season up into two chunks. The Patriots will play the Jets on Thanksgiving Day and have a Monday Night Football game against the Texans on December 10.
