At least you’ll know who your team will play next year.

You’ll even know where they’ll play next year.

As for the when, patience, grasshopper.

The opponents for all 2017 regular-season games have been determined and a complete list of each team’s home and away matchups was issued by the NFL.

The scheduling formula implemented in 2002 with realignment guarantees that all teams play each other on a regular, rotating basis.

Under the formula, every team plays 16 games as follows:

•Home and away against its three division opponents (6 games).

•The four teams from another division within its conference on a rotating three-year cycle (4 games).

•The four teams from a division in the other conference on a rotating four-year cycle (4 games).

Two intra-conference games based on the prior year’s standings (2 games). These games match a first-place team against the first-place teams in the two same-conference divisions the team is not scheduled to play that season. The second-place, third-place, and fourth-place teams in a conference are matched in the same way each year.

Beginning in 2010, a change was made to how teams are paired in the schedule rotation with the AFC and NFC West divisions.

The official 2017 schedule, with playing dates and times, will be announced in the spring.

NFL Kickoff 2017 Weekend will begin on Thursday night, September 7 and the regular season will conclude on Sunday, December 31.

Super Bowl LII at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota will be played on Sunday, February 4, 2018.
