The NFL released its schedule for the 2017 season on Thursday evening, and apparently the Houston Texans missed out on playing the Patriots in the NFL Kickoff Game — all thanks to Tony Romo.

This offseason, the Texans and Broncos were the frontrunners to land Romo after he lost his job to Dak Prescott. Instead, he opted to retire and join CBS in the broadcast booth.

On Good Morning Football Friday, NFL Senior Director of Broadcasting Mike North indicated that the Texans would have been favored to open against the Patriots, had Romo joined them.

No. 1 picks between 1947 and 1958 were won via lottery. Yep, the NFL used to do that, but only for the first pick. The Colts won one of those in 1955, but theyd had the NFLs second-worst record anyway.The Colts took No. 1 picks from the Saints in 1967 and Falcons in 1990 via trades. (The Colts also immediately traded away 1983 No. 1 pick John Elway.)

The Browns pick first in 2017, their only top picks since their back-to-back combo of Tim Couch and Courtney Brown at the turn of the millennium. They have a chance to totally dominate this draft, if they dont Browns it up, and are expected to pick Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett at the top, along with a QB at some point.

Luke Joeckel, Ereck Flowers, and Greg Robinson were all highly regarded draft prospects, and all three have struggled so far in the NFL. Watching their college film, its clear that they are athletic and talented, and have the potential to be excellent pros. Joeckel and Robinson played in college offenses that barely resembled anything that exists in the NFL. I could hardly find any clips to make comparisons. Flowers played in a pro-style offense, so its even more disappointing that he hasnt made the transition well.
