NFL announces opponent and date for Patriots’ international game

Get ready for some Deutschland action with the New England Patriots slated to fly to Germany to take on the Indianapolis Colts in the 2023 season.

The NFL made the news official on Wednesday with the game set for November 12 at Frankfurt Stadium.

It was a demolition show when the Patriots faced the Colts last season at Gillette Stadium. Sam Ehlinger was the quarterback for Indy, and he was sacked nine times and finished the game with a 10.8 quarterback rating. Matthew Judon and Josh Uche were feasting on sack lunches up front, and cornerback Jonathan Jones recorded a pick-six in the game.

Of course, things could be much different this time around with the Colts using the No. 4 overall pick of the 2023 NFL draft on Florida quarterback Anthony Richardson.

The Patriots should be even better on the defensive side of the ball after a strong draft, and their offense could see significant improvements with major coaching changes, including hiring Bill O’Brien as the offensive coordinator.

An early morning showdown in Germany between two improved AFC teams could be the main headline going into this game.
