Patriots 2011 dates against Giants, Jets reportedly set
|04.19.11 at 4:43 pm ET|
Even though the Patriots’ schedule won’t be officially released until tonight at 7, there are some early leaks. The first one comes from the New York Daily News, which reports that the Patriots and Jets will play at Gillette Stadium in Week 5. The second comes from the Newark Star-Ledger, which is reporting that the Patriots will host the Giants in Week 9 ‘ specifically, Nov. 6 at 4:15 p.m. That would eliminate two of the eight home games, with the other six (Miami, Buffalo, Dallas, Indianapolis, Kansas City and San Diego) set to come later tonight.
(UPDATE, 5:12 p.m.: The Patriots have announced via their Twitter feed that they will open the 2011 season on the road.)
