NFL schedule 2017: The 10 worst prime-time games

10. Broncos at Colts (Week 15, Thursday night, Dec. 14)

This one was a lot more fun when there was that whole Peyton Manning thing. Now it could be an ugly affair with Andrew Luck getting smacked by Denver's defense and either Trevor Siemian or Paxton Lynch being inconsistent against Indy's weaker D.

  Raiders schedule 2017: Oakland's playoff road isn't pretty, including rough end The Raiders' 2017 schedule will be a good litmus test for how much they have improved from their breakout 2016 regular season. Getting back to the playoffs won't be easy; Oakland's opponents carry over a combined .564 winning percentage from last season, including their foes in the stacked AFC West and NFC East.From wire to wire, there's no breathing room or real gimme games for Oakland in 2017. One of the NFL's most talented young teams will need to grow up faster, but with Derek Carr leading the way, that certainly can happen by the Bay.

At 8 p.m. ET Thursday night , the NFL will release the full schedule for every team, but an early leak of the schedule has given up a jump start. NOTE: Mike Francesa first announced this slate of games on WFAN. 9/ 10 at Dallas Cowboys (Sunday Night Football ).

9. Texans at Bengals (Week 2, Thursday night, Sept. 14)

The NFL likes to keep selling this one, even though those of us who weren't saved by midnight mass had to endure that 12-10 gem last Christmas Eve. Assuming J.J. Watt is healthy, we know he'll have Andy Dalton and Cincinnati's number like he always does. But don't worry, Tom Savage will likely be in there to bungle Houston's offense, too.

8. Steelers at Lions (Week 8, Sunday night, Oct. 29)

The Steelers won Super Bowl XL in Detroit to send Jerome Bettis off as a hometown hero. But it's a lot different to see them actually playing Detroit in a so-called marquee game. Rest assured Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell will return to Michigan to put up big fantasy football numbers, so you can just check the box score later. This feels like too much of a Steelers roll to entertain non-Steelers fans.

7. Dolphins at Ravens (Week 8, Thursday night, Oct. 26)

Ryan Tannehill and Joe Flacco are both tall. But that doesn't mean we're excited to see them have another inconsistent passing duel under the lights.

6. Eagles at Panthers (Week 6, Thursday night, Oct. 12)

Shocking. The NFL will try to get Cam Newton battered on a short week. That's just too painful to watch.

1. Chiefs at Patriots (Week 1, Thursday night, Sept. 7)

After what New England did in the Super Bowl, watching Andy Reid getting thoroughly outcoached by Bill Belichick doesn't come close to being a promising sequel. It's a big letdown not to have the Falcons rematch — arguably the best game of the 2017 NFL season — for the NFL's season opener.
