2015 Thursday night opener: Patriots vs. ???

The New England Patriots not only won a trophy Sunday night--they won the the right to the NFL's first home game of 2015.

New England will host the league's first contest September 10. While the schedule isn't set yet, it will be against one of the following teams: Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, New York Jets, Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins, Pittsburgh Steelers.

The two NFC teams are doubtful, and no one wants to watch the Jaguars or Titans open the year. Pittsburgh may be the most likely candidate, though we'd love a divisional bout.

Either way, there's plenty of time to guess, as the schedule won't come out until around April.
