Before we get to 2014 New England Patriots training camp which opens Thursday, here's a quick look ahead to the Patriots' 2015 opponents, as determined by the NFL's rotating scheduling format:
AFC North team that finishes in same spot in '14 standings
AFC West team that finishes in same spot in '14 standings
QUICK-HIT THOUGHTS: The rotating scheduling formula has the AFC East matching up against the AFC South and NFC East next year. That combination produces the two trips to Texas. Meanwhile, if the Patriots and Broncos continue on their collision course, and finish atop their divisions, they'll meet in Denver next regular season.
