The NFL released the New England Patriots’ schedule for the 2021 season — or they will. There have been leaks ahead of the announcement at 8 p.m. on Wednesday. That’s how we got a sneak peak at New England’s first-ever 18-week season.

The Patriots bookend their season with matchups against the Miami Dolphins. New England has, perhaps, their most interesting game of the season against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 4. And the Patriots have a pair of appointments with the Buffalo Bills in the final six weeks of the season. Will they be battles for the No. 1 spot in the AFC East?

Here’s a look at how the NFL put together New England’s schedule for 2021.
