(AP) – One of the spoils of being champion: The New England Patriots will kick off the NFL season on September 7th by hosting the Kansas City Chiefs.

New England earned that honor with its record comeback to beat the Atlanta Falcons in the Super Bowl. Its opening opponent in a Thursday night game won the AFC West last season. The Falcons visit Chicago in their first game.

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

On Monday night, New Orleans is at Minnesota, followed by the Chargers, in their first game representing Los Angeles since 1960, at Denver.

Five games will be held abroad, beginning with Baltimore vs. Jacksonville in London on September 24th. The next week, Miami hosts New Orleans. In Week 7, the Rams host the Cardinals, followed the next week by Minnesota vs. Cleveland.

New England is the visitor against Oakland at Mexico City on November 19th.
