Faux Schedule, or the Real Thing?

I’m always a little skittish on this particular date but some alert Internet friends report that the Patriots have posted a full 2009 schedule on their website this morning.

Three divisional games to start the season – two of them at home – followed by conference battles with the Broncos and Ravens are the first things I notice. Also another ┬áprime-time November sweeps match up with the Colts, and a late season match up with last year’s #1 seed Tennessee. I’m sure we’ll find more as the day goes along.

Unless we’re being suckered in the spirit of the ‘holiday’. In case we are, and this link is about to disappear, here’s the slate as posted at this moment:

Mon 9/14/2009 7:00 PM vs Bills ESPN
TBA Time/Date TBA @ Dolphins
TBA Time/Date TBA vs Jets
TBA Time/Date TBA @ Broncos
TBA Time/Date TBA vs Ravens
TBA Time/Date TBA vs Falcons
Sun 10/25/2009 1:00 PM @ Buccaneers
TBA Time/Date TBA @ Jets
TBA Time/Date TBA vs Dolphins
TBA Time/Date TBA @ Texans
TBA Time/Date TBA @ Colts
TBA Time/Date TBA vs Panthers
TBA Time/Date TBA vs Jaguars
TBA Time/Date TBA @ Saints
TBA Time/Date TBA vs Titans
TBA Time/Date TBA @ Bills TBA

Thanks to Joe for the heads up. Much appreciated.

Update: Pro Football Talk is reporting that this is not the actual schedule, but their explanation (something about a team employee completing a grid…wha?) leaves something to be desired.
