At least we get the Patsies & Broncos & Seahawks at home. Season tickets will sell nicely for all the disaffected fans.

I'd say that's an 11-5 schedule off first glance. One, maybe 2 tough away games and the rest of the tough opponents at home.

Cushing will be back...

My first thought is that the away portion looks very easy except the 49er game. All very winnable. The home part is much tougher.

Man, you're really optimistic.
It's not going to be easy winning the division next year.
If somebody gives me 4-2, I'll take it in a heartbeat.
I'm seeing 10-6 or 9-7.

Jacksonville & Tennessee don't scare me right now, and the only difference on the schedule is Indianapolis will have Cincinnati & Miami. Cincy has been to the playoffs the past two years and Miami should only improve next year with Tannehill.

I don't think that's 100% accurate. Because we played Seattle and San Fran at home in 2009, so those should be away this time around. The last time we played Arizona was in Arizona when Andre took out 3 guys to get into the endzone.

NFL.com is wrong. The Texans will play at Seattle, with Arizona here.

I just pulled up the sch off HT.com and it has us playing Seattle here and the Cards away.. I think they posted their sch off NFL.com though.

That's why I said there are two diff sch out! IF we play Seattle here, and the Cards there, then they changed up the system. The reason I've been paying attention is because I want to plan a vac trip to Seattle next year around the time I THOUGHT we were going to play there. Guess we might not know until the official sch comes out in April.

Depending on which schedule is correct, I see 10+ games I feel good about. That, however, is based on how all of these teams have performed in the 2012 season. Primarily, I'm pinning my hopes on the idea that the Jaguars, Titans, Chiefs, Raiders and Rams will all continue to suck.

jaguars, titans, chiefs and raiders will continue to suck I think. I don't know about the rams though, a few pieces in the right spot and they could be a good team. But you're right, and I've said it before myself, you just don't know how teams will be from year to year.

So now the Pats are the team we will build/coach our team to beat like the manning colts and more recently the ravens whom we could never beat in the regular season and nor the playoffs......until recently (regular season) and more than likely we would have beat them this year at home for the AFC 'ship.

I would love to destroy the Pats during that game - just totally rip them to pieces............total domination........:thisbig:

Houston was 3-2 in Prime Time games this year. Two of the best teams they played were the losses (Patriots, Packers). I don't think it was Prime Time games that got them in those games as much as it was Rodgers & Brady exploiting man-coverage.

They will probably have four or five Prime Time games next year. Possible match-ups for those games: @San Francisco, Seattle, New England, Denver, @Baltimore, @San Diego, Indianapolis. Prime Time games are the toughest opponents and I can see another 3-2 or 2-3 record in Prime Time. It has nothing to do with playing it in Prime Time, though.

I see a 12-4 season.

We can win almost all of our home games, save one. The Pats game will be hard to predict, because I can see a loss, but I know our fans will show up. I could also see a loss to the Rams, since Fisher knows us pretty well.

On the road, I see about 3 losses. Indy, San Fran, and possibly the Ravens.

So give or take, we can go anywhere between 11-5 or 13-3.

Rams beat playoff teams Redskins, Ravens, 49ers and the Seahawks this season. They are not going to suck next season. Titans and Jags will continue to struggle. Chiefs have a good core team.

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/02/06/nfl-has-plenty-of-good-options-for-ravens-week-one-home-opener/

As the Super Bowl champions, the Ravens will be the home team for the NFLís Thursday night opener on September 5, and the good news for the NFL (and NBC) is that the Ravens have a very good slate of home opponents in 2013, from a TV ratings perspective.

The Ravensí home opponents in 2013 are the Bengals, Browns, Steelers, Patriots, Jets, Texans, Packers and Vikings. Of those, only the Browns can be eliminated: Thereís no way the league will put Cleveland in the marquee Week One opener.

(Well, if we want to get crazy, weíll point out one scenario in which the opener could be Browns-Ravens: If the Ravens put the non-exclusive franchise tag on Joe Flacco, and the Browns sign him away, then Browns at Ravens would suddenly become the marquee game of the entire season. But itís probably safe to say that wonít happen.)

Aside from the Browns, every other potential Week One matchup in Baltimore would be a good game: The Bengals, Patriots, Texans, Packers and Vikings were all playoff teams, the Steelers-Ravens rivalry has long been one of the NFLís best, and even though the Jets were a circus last year, they were a circus that plenty of people watched.

So who will the Ravensí Week One opponent be? Only once since the NFL began playing the opening game in the Super Bowl championís city has there been an interconference game, and it probably wonít happen again this year: FOX only gets the Ravens twice and would surely fight to keep Vikings-Ravens or Packers-Ravens from moving over to NBC. Considering that the last three Week One opening night games have been NFC matchups that otherwise would have been on FOX, the NFL will probably decide that itís time to take an AFC game from CBS.

Of the AFC games, one stands out as the best of the bunch: Patriots-Ravens, a rematch of the last two AFC Championship Games. The Patriots and the Ravens have developed a great rivalry in recent years, and theyíve played some excellent games that have drawn huge TV ratings. The Ravens have a great slate of home games in 2013, but none is better than the Patriots game, and thatís probably the one weíll all be watching on the first Thursday night in September.

If you believe in the conspiracy theories, this makes sense. We've never won in Indy & this will give Andrew Luck a leg up in the division.

I do like that better. I'd just as soon all the division games be played in November & December. I don't know how feasible that is.... but the November/December team is more true to that team than the September/October teams when they're trying to figure out what's what.

But I hope we don't get another 3 game shortened road trip culminating in a primetime game.

2010 & 2011 the openers were against Indianapolis so those definitely weren't "late in the season". I despise playing a team twice in three weeks like Houston/Indy did last year. One early matchup and one late matchup would be preferred for me.

I'm not going to claim definitively but there are games that look to be tough on the schedule next year. The only way we can judge it right now is how those teams played this past year or if we think certain teams have the potential to be better. The Rams, for example, could be a tough game next year. The Seahawks & 49ers are both good teams. The Ravens, Patriots and Broncos are likely going to win their respective divisions next year and all three should be tough match-ups.

This is the type of schedule a first place team gets and I'm definitely not complaining. :texflag:

I think this division is going to be tough next year and I wouldn't be shocked if we didn't win it and ended up a wild card team. I think the colts will get better and I think both the jags and titans will be solid teams. I think the titans will be better than the jags though. I think next year the colts win the division. I think we'll fight with the titans for second place and ultimately edge them out.

When I say upset, I mean upset the division. It will not surprise me at all if a couple of writers pick the Colts to win the division. It will be the same feeling as when they got us at home in 2010.

What really makes me believe we will be playing them is the fact that we haven't started the season on the road since 08. If we do get the Colts away to start, I'll be the prediction champ for like a day! lol

As for losing to them in the opener, I'd be okay with that. Sure, it sucks to start 0-1, but if we can't beat them, I'd rather get that loss out of the way, as opposed to having it be the last game.

Although, I think we will shock people and get our first win in Indy, if it is the first game.

The Seahawks and 49ers were good teams in 2012, that does not mean they will be a good team in 2013. I don't know what the Rams did to impress so many on this board in 2012, but they were garbage when not playing the NFC West last year.

AFCS tough next year? Why exactly? Because Tennessee kept that crap staff? Because the Jags did . . . ? Because the Colts O-line is now not a train wreck? Nothing has really changed yet in this infantile offseason, wait until after the draft and then get back to me about how tough this schedule is.

We can only go off our expectation of teams right now. I fully expect the Broncos, Patriots, Ravens, Seahawks and 49ers to be in playoff contention next year. Does that guarantee it? No. Can the Super Bowl teams from this year fail expectations next year? Certainly. However, all five games I mentioned look to be tough match-ups right now.

The only reason I mentioned the Rams is I've seen a couple people mention them as a team could surprise people next year.

That whole post wasn't solely directed at you, you just provided a decent jumping off point. The Patriots are probably the only sure fire tough game we have in the AFC at this point. Ravens weren't exactly tough when we played them, and the rest of the NFC North is experiencing a case of the meh's. Beat the invincible Broncos when we played them as well, and I'm not sure what the Chiefs did to earn the title of having a good core to their team. Raiders, and San Diego are who cares type teams and until they make some significant moves I'll probably still feel this way in August.

All in all the schedule as it is doesn't give me the willies like some people here, but there's a lot of actions to be executed before the kickoff in the fall of 2013.

I didn't think it was solely directed at me which is why I didn't comment about the AFCS being tough next year, since I wasn't the one who made the comment. Or Pittsburgh worrying me, since they aren't even on the schedule next year.

The Texans will be playing the NFC West next year. I'm not worried about the schedule but looking at it there are at least five teams that will be tough match-ups. That's about the same amount I thought were tough looking at last years schedule around this time. Some of those match-ups turned out to be landslides in the Texans favor (Baltimore, Denver), other were landslides in the opposing teams favor (Patriots, Packers). Simply the 50/50 games I expect Houston to win a few and lose a few. Just like they did last year.

All in all the schedule as it is doesn't give me the willies like some people here, but there's a lot of actions to be executed before the kickoff in the fall of 2013.

I don't think it's much different than our 2012 schedule. We're still playing the top teams in the AFC & the NFC West looks similar to the NFC North..... Greenbay, Chicago, Detroit.... 49ers, Seattle, & the West doesn't look much different than the East..... Miami, NYJets, Buffalo...... San Diego, Oakland, KC...

We don't know what they'll do in FA, we don't know how they'll do in the draft, & we don't know what kind of cancer any of us are going to come down with before the season starts. But we know New England isn't the kind of organization to screw it up. We know Elway & his bunch are off to a pretty good start. We know the new look Raiders are pretty much like the old look Raiders...

Our opinions are going to change a half a dozen times between now & the beginning of the season, then twice again before October..... that's what makes the offseason.

I'd hate to be a 3rd place team & have to play the Steelers.

The Seahawks and 49ers were good teams in 2012, that does not mean they will be a good team in 2013. I don't know what the Rams did to impress so many on this board in 2012, but they were garbage when not playing the NFC West last year.

AFCS tough next year? Why exactly? Because Tennessee kept that crap staff? Because the Jags did . . . ? Because the Colts O-line is now not a train wreck? Nothing has really changed yet in this infantile offseason, wait until after the draft and then get back to me about how tough this schedule is. LOL worrying about an 8-8 Steelers team that's about to lose Mike Wallace.

last time we played the rams man that was one of the toughest Games of that year physical low scoring game and they had some scrub QB 2 .... and it came down to the last drive thats why

Almost 2 completely different teams now, I'm not even sure what a game that happened at the end of the 2009 season has anything to do with the upcoming 2013 season.

The same could be said about the Texans. I mean, they did go 2-4 in their last 6 games.

The schedule looks tough by last seasons standings (4 playoff teams just at home and 3 more on the road including the 2 Super Bowl participants) but we all know that won't mean much come next fall.
