Looking at New England’s 2024 opponents

Looking at New England’s 2024 opponents

The New England Patriots will have their hands full in 2024 with a much-improved AFC East division, along with multiple games against possible playoff contenders.

They’ll be in deep waters from start to finish with a first-year head coach in Jerod Mayo and rookie quarterback Drake Maye.

With that said, no one is expecting the Patriots to go on some amazing run, make the playoffs and contend for a Super Bowl. They’re a rebuilding team in their first season since splitting from former coach Bill Belichick.

It’s going to take time to build the team back into a contender.

Outside of their own division, they’ll have some tough matchups with games against AFC South, AFC North, AFC West, NFC North and NFC West opposition. Here are the opponents slated to face the Patriots on the 2024 NFL schedule:
