    4 Tennessee Titans Welcome back, Dick. 4 - 0
    5 Minnesota Vikings Vikings no good on the road; 5 - 0
    6 At Chicago Bears MNF. Bears get a primetime game only because they are hosting the Steelers. 6 - 0
    7 Jacksonville Jaguars 7 - 0
    8 Baltimore Ravens SNF for high TV ratings. Ravens worse in 2017. 8 - 0

    11 Cincinnati Bengals Two in a row; 8 - 2.
    12 At Indianapolis Colts Will Andrew Luck be able to walk by Week 12? 9 - 2.
    13 Cleveland Browns Browns will be starting their rookie QB. 10 -2.
    14 At Baltimore Ravens Hard to beat them twice. 10 - 3.
    15 New England Patriots SNF. Flexed into prime time as the best game of the week. 11 - 3.
    16 At Cleveland Browns RG III will be back from his latest injury. 12 - 3.
    17 At Cincinnati Bengals Starters rest in meaningless game; Bengals find a way to lose. 13 -3

    I love the mid-season bye.


    I like the Thursday game is at home against a beatable opponent.


    I like that the bye is sandwiched between away games.


    I like that the last game of the year is at home. Odd that they play Cleveland in the first and last weeks.


    Four primetime games in a row! Good for the out of town fans without DirecTV. Five primetime games altogether which is the max.


    KC and Patriots will be national broadcasts as well.


    Raven at home late in the year is great.


    Christmas two years in a row; not a fan.
