While the New England Patriots are most definitely #NotDone with the 2017-2018 season, it doesn’t hurt to look ahead at what’s on the agenda for next year.

With the standings for this season finalized and the Patriots finishing at 13-3 for their eighth straight year with 12-plus wins, the opponents have been set.

New England will take on the Kansas City Chiefs, Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins and New York Jets at home in Gillette Stadium.

They will travel to compete with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans, Detroit Lions, Chicago Bears, Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins and New York Jets.

Among these teams are six who made this year’s playoffs – the Bills, Chiefs, Jaguars, Steelers, Vikings and Titans.

Notable games include the first Tom Brady-Aaron Rogers matchup since 2014 and New England’s third straight year playing the Steelers at Heinz Field.
