National Football League to Release 2017 Schedule Thursday Night

The NFL's 2017 NFL regular-season schedule will be released Thursday afternoon, the league announced.

The Eagles visit the Rams on December 10 in a showdown between the top two overall picks in the 2016 NFL Draft: Los Angeles' Jared Goff (No. 1) and Philadelphia's Carson Wentz (No. 2).

Week 11: Sunday, Nov. 19 at Oakland Raiders (Mexico City) 4:25 p.m. It's the Raiders' final home game of the regular season.

There will be four games played in London, with two in Wembley Stadium and two at Twickenham Stadium. Sports Authority Field at Mile High is 5,280 feet above sea level, and Azteca Stadium is 7,350 feet above sea level. It comes after a pair of games against always-tough NFC South teams in the Panthers and Buccaneers, with the latter being a Thursday night matchup and a short week; but also more prep for the Falcons game. The NFL schedule will be released Thursday night on NFL Network in a two-hour special.

The league announced the details for global games way back in December, so none of these will be a surprise when the schedule is officially released.

March for Science Set for Earth Day
A campus-wide email sent April 13 by Provost Richard Locke and Vice President for Research David Savitz echoed these sentiments. Indeed, scientists at the march will also be demonstrating to push for a greater role for climate experts in policy-making.

Father of Tennessee Girl Says He is Overjoyed
Elizabeth Thomas was allegedly abducted from Culleoka, Tennessee by her 50-year-old teacher Tad Cummins on March 13 . "I'm glad this is over", 50-year-old Tad Cummins said after his arrest, according to Siskiyou County sheriff's Sgt.

Crude Oil Prices Slide As US Adds Output
Stockpiles climbed to 535.5 million barrels at the end of March, the highest in weekly data compiled by Bloomberg since 1982. But U.S. stockpiles-and shale production-have cast doubt on whether the production cuts were enough.

The Patriots will play three of their first four games at home, with a trip to New Orleans (Sept. 17, 1 p.m.) interrupting the homestand that includes visits by Houston and Carolina on Sept. 24 and October 1, both 1 p.m. starts.

This one is becoming somewhat of a tradition as the Giants and Cowboys are scheduled to face each other in Week 1 for the fifth time in six years and for the third consecutive season in Dallas on Sunday Night Football.

The Broncos may still be figuring out their quarterback situation, but they still have one of the league's elite defenses and remain one of the Patriots' biggest conference rivals, despite missing the playoffs last season.

The Patriots feature heavily in the 10 must-see games of the 2017 campaign.

Both teams will kick off at 1:25 p.m. local time in Weeks 2, 14 and 17.
