Pa­tri­ots open NFL sea­son vs. Chiefs

NEWS SER­VICES

Star Tribune - - MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL NFL -

One of the spoils of be­ing the cham­pion: The New Eng­land Pa­tri­ots will kick off the NFL sea­son on Thurs­day, Sept. 7, by host­ing the Kansas City Chiefs.

New Eng­land earned that honor with its record come­back to beat At­lanta in the Su­per Bowl. The Chiefs won the AFC West last sea­son.

The rest of the open­ing week­end will fea­ture what seems like a yearly oc­cur­rence: Dal­las host­ing the New York Giants on Sun­day night. Those teams fin­ished 1-2 in the NFC East in 2016.

Five games will be held abroad, begin­ning with Bal­ti­more vs. Jack­sonville in Lon­don on Sept. 24. New Eng­land will play Oakland in Mex­ico City on Nov. 19.

Thanks­giv­ing’s tra­di­tional games will have the Vik­ings at Detroit and the Los Angeles Charg­ers at Dal­las. In prime time, the Giants will play at the Wash­ing­ton Red­skins.

Christ­mas week­end will be busy. Two Sat­ur­day games on Dec. 23 have Indianapolis at Bal­ti­more in late af­ter­noon, the Vik­ings at Green Bay at night. Most of the rest of the sched­ule will be played on Dec. 24, with no night game. On Christ­mas Day, Pitts­burgh will go to Houston in a lateafter­noon matchup, fol­lowed by Oakland at Philadel­phia.

The Fal­cons are sched­uled to open their new sta­dium in an NFC Cham­pi­onship Game re­match with Green Bay on Sun­day night in Week 2. At­lanta has five prime-time games, the same num­ber as New Eng­land. The Su­per Bowl re­match comes Sun­day night, Oct. 22.

StubHub Cen­ter, the new and tem­po­rary home of the Charg­ers, will have its first reg­u­lar-sea­son con­test in Week 2 when Mi­ami vis­its.

Ev­ery team ex­cept Cleve­land and Jack­sonville will get prime-time ex­po­sure. Nei­ther of those clubs has a Thurs­day game, ei­ther.

Once again, Sun­day nights will have flex­i­ble sched­ul­ing, from Weeks 10 through 15 and for the fi­nal week­end. Also, two of the five Sun­day night matchups in Weeks 5 through 9 can be flexed.

Byes will oc­cur Weeks 5 through 11.

Tus­sle over brain

The at­tor­ney who rep­re­sented in his re­cent crim­i­nal trial ac­cused the Mas­sachusetts state medi-

Aaron Her­nan­dez

cal ex­am­iner Thurs­day of il­le­gally keep­ing the former NFL star’s brain rather than turn­ing it over to a univer­sity that stud­ies brain in­juries in foot­ball play­ers.

“They are hold­ing Aaron Her­nan­dez’s brain il­le­gally,” at­tor­ney said at a news con­fer­ence out­side the med­i­cal ex­am­iner’s of­fice.

Her­nan­dez, a Bris­tol, Conn., na­tive, was serv­ing a life sen­tence for mur­der when he was found dead in his cell early Wed­nes­day, Mas­sachusetts prison of­fi­cials said. He tied a bed sheet to a win­dow, cor­rec­tions of­fi­cials said.

Jose Baez DEA of­fi­cial booed

2011:

A top drug-en­force­ment of­fi­cial in­vited by the NFL in 2011 to ed­u­cate team physi­cians and staff about med­i­cat­ing play­ers in com­pli­ance with fed­eral laws was met with skep­ti­cism, cat­calls and even oc­ca­sional boos from the doc­tors gath­ered, ac­cord­ing to a pub­lished re­port.

“And the funny thing was, I was there to help them. I wasn’t look­ing to take ac­tion against any­body,”
