On September 12th, the Patriots will travel to Florida to take on the Miami Dolphins and return home on September 18th to face off against the San Diego Chargers. We can’t wait to see all of you at the regular season home opener when the Patriots take on the San Diego Chargers on September 18th!

At the end of the season, one fan, the Patriots Designated Driver for the Season, will be the Honorary Team Captain and join the Patriots captains for the coin toss on the 50-yard-line to start the final home game of the season on January 1, 2012. The Patriots Designated Driver for the Season will also receive an autographed Patriots helmet and have a chance to follow the Patriots to Super Bowl XLVI at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, IN on February 5, 2012. At Gillette Stadium this season, there is no doubt that Responsibility Has Its Rewards.
