Earlier today, it was announced that every Week 17 matchup in the 2010 NFL season would consist of divisional games.
The full NFL schedule will be released at 7 pm ET, but a few of the matchups are trickling into our domain. It's been a few months since we found out Denver and San Francisco will meet in London's Wembley Stadium on October 31. However, here is what we've learned today:
- Confirmed: The Saints will kick off the season on Thursday, September 9, at home in an NFC Championship rematch against the Vikings.
- Unconfirmed: The Minnesota Vikings will visit the New York Jets in the evening matchup on Thanksgiving Day.
- Unconfirmed: The Lions will host the Patriots on Thanksgiving Day.
We'll keep track of all the early confirmed and rumored leaks here. Check back often!
