The Legion of Boom may be losing some of its punch, but the Seahawks are a different team at home and there nearly always seems to be some sort of controversy when Seattle get a prime-time home game. Given its relatively late position on the schedule, this game could carry significant playoff implications.

Key questions for Raiders fans include finding out when they'll play the world champion New England Patriots in Mexico City, and when will they play their first game in Los Angeles since 1994?

On New Year's Eve, the Patriots will close out the regular season against their division rival from NY. In Week 7, the Chiefs travel to Oakland to take on the Raiders on Thursday Night Football. On a Thursday night. Oh, and by the way, Roger Goodell is expected to be there.

Three December home games, again. At Wembley, the Ravens will face off against the Jaguars in Week 3 or Week 4, and the Saints will face the Dolphins in Week 4. October 22 8:30 p.m.

At least one of those games will be played at 9:30 a.m. ET, despite the fact that a lot of people hate that timing. Then comes a long road trip to Mexico City and a game against the Raiders, a fellow contender in the AFC. Though as we know, Mexico City will have a very Raider-centric crowd just as it did a year ago.

Harden has 37 points, Rockets rout Thunder, Westbrook 118-87
The Houston Rockets guard had run into a Steven Adams screen and hit the floor hard, and the crowd reacted with a hush. The Rockets scored the first five points of the second half to push their lead to 10 early in the third quarter.

The opponents for all teams are already set - on Thursday will come dates, times and TV designations.

We know that there are mixed feelings about football on Thursdays.

Here is a full list of the 49ers opponents.

We saw some thrilling games in the postseason, and we'll have plenty of rematches this year. The Chiefs lost to the Patriots, 27-20, on January 16, 2016; Sherman caught one pass for a yard in the contest. The teams last played in the 2016 AFC Divisional Round, a 27-20 win by New England. The next week, Miami hosts New Orleans.
