The season schedules are out and the Patriots have quite a few interesting games on the table. Let's take a look. */    Date  Opponent  Time  Thoughts Sunday, Sept. 9 @ Tennessee 1:00 p.m. ET A solid opening day matchup. Can Jake Locker be the opening day starter? The Patriots begin their quest to get back to the Super Bowl. Sunday, Sept. 16 Arizona 1:00 p.m. ET The only thing that is hot right now in Arizona is Arizona. A QB mess doesn't help the Cards, but Kolb isn't the answer. Sunday, Sept. 23 @  Baltimore 8:20 p.m. ET Baltimore wants to rinse that sour taste out of their collective mouths that they've had since their crushing post-season defeat at the hands of New England and the leg of Billy Cundiff. The self proclaimed best QB in the league hosts the actual best QB in the league. Sunday, Sept. 30 @ Buffalo 1:00 p.m. ET The Bills look to find the same success they had early last year. Adding Mario Williams is a start we suppose, but probably not enough. Sunday, Oct. 7 Denver 4:15 p.m. ET Peyton Manning comes to town dressed in blue and orange. Will the best QB debate be reborn or is that a done deal already? Sunday, Oct. 14 @ Seattle 4:05 p.m. ET Pete Caroll is pumped and jacked up to host the team that fired him after he couldn't fill the really giant coaching shoes of Bill Parcells. Nice guys finish last. Sunday, Oct. 21 New York Jets 4:15 p.m. ET It's the near middle of the season. What's the over-under on Tebow taking over the starting job? Sunday, Oct. 28 @ St. Louis (London) 1:00 p.m. ET Disappointed about this one - Brandon Meriweather won't get to see the 'Big Bang Clock' again. Sunday, Nov. 4 BYE WEEK   As accustomed to London game participants, bye weeks follow. Can't argue with that one; Patriots get a great spot at week 9. Sunday, Nov. 11 Buffalo 1:00 p.m. ET They almost had us fooled early in the 20011 season, but they showed their true colors down the stretch. Injuries and a big payday to their Quarteback seemed to help the Bills fizzle out. What's to change? Nothing from this standpoint. Sunday, Nov. 18 Indianapolis 1:00 p.m. ET Memories on how things used to be. No Peyton Manning to hold their hands, the once proud Colts look to be doormats for the foreseeable future. Thursday, Nov. 22 @ New York Jets 8:20 p.m. ET Tebow fans have overtaken New York by now and Mark Sanchez has given in to the pressure. Expect Tebow to have a big role in the NYJ offense and Sanchez on the bench calling his teenage girlfriend for the correct time of the prom. Sunday, Dec. 2 @ Miami 1:00 p.m. ET Not even humor helps here, the Dolphins will be competing for the number one overall 2013 pick. Monday, Dec. 10 Houston 8:30 p.m. ET Here comes the lumber, Houston, a team on the rise, should give the Patriots all they can handle. Ouch... Sunday, Dec. 16 San Francisco 8:20 p.m. ET Ouch..Ouch...Really? Houston and then San Francisco? Really? Sunday, Dec. 23 @ Jacksonville 1:00 p.m. ET Ah, Jacksonville..the elixer for back to back death matches. Oakland has the commitment to excellence; Jacksonville is committed to flatulence. Sunday, Dec. 30 Miami 1:00 p.m. ET And with the number one overall pick, the Dolphins select...
