We now know the Patriots preseason opponents, and how the weeks will unfold down the road.
The starters normally never play in the last preseason game.
The NFL announced the 2017 preseason pairings today and the Patriots learned that they will host the Jacksonville Jaguars (Preseason Week 1) and the New York Giants (Preseason Week 4) at Gillette Stadium and travel to play the Houston Texans (Preseason Week 2) and the Detroit Lions (Preseason Week 3). The Giants are the Patriots' most frequent preseason opponent.
The dates and times for those games have yet to be announced.
Uber says never used Waymo files on self-driving
The most interesting part of the battle is the fact that Anthony Levandowski has asserted his right to the Fifth Amendment. If a judge rules in Waymo's favor, Uber would have to stop using anything that Waymo included in a list of trade secrets.
The Patriots have practiced at The Greenbrier before, in 2015 with the New Orleans Saints, who utilized the resort site for their training camp for the past three seasons. With starters normally playing the most in the third game of the preseason, we will likely have a chance to figure that out. Then, in keeping with their tradition of the last dozen years, the Patriots and Giants will meet up for the preseason finale, which will be played at Gillette Stadium.
The Patriots, along with many other National Football League teams, tend to rest most of their starting players in the final game of the National Football League preseason, preventing any major injuries.
The Patriots also announced on Mondaty the re-signings of two of their free agents, defensive lineman Alan Branch and offensive tackle Cameron Fleming.
