BOSTON (CBS) — The full 2019 NFL schedule will be released Wednesday night, but some of the bigger matchups have already leaked. That includes a handful of games for the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots, including their season opener.

The Pats will kick off their 2019 season — and raise their latest Super Bowl banner — against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday Night Football, according to The Boston Herald’s Evan Lazar.

Not a bad opponent for the Patriots to raise Banner No. 6 in front of, given their historic rivalry that isn’t much of a rivalry. The Patriots lost 17-10 in Pittsburgh last season, but won their previous five matchups. That included the 2015 season opener when the Patriots raised their Super Bowl XLIX banner.

Opening night is one of five primetime games that will reportedly be on New England’s 2019 schedule, according to The Athletic’s Nick Underhill:

We’ll have to wait until 8 p.m. tonight (or for more Twitter leaks) for the rest of the schedule, including intriguing games against the Dallas Cowboys, Cleveland Browns, and Kansas City Chiefs at Gillette Stadium.

    Are you a Steelers fan?!? You just gave them some stupid and unnecessary fodder. It is hard enough to beat a good NFL team, let alone one with a storied history like the Steelers without some arrogant dip@##$ writing c#%p like this that will likely end up on the wall of their locker room all offseason. Turn on your brain when you write going forward. . . Please!!!
