This season, unless I'm mistaken, we're playing the NFC West, the AFC West, and the AFC 1st place teams.
That means Patriots and Ravens again during the regular season. AND we play the:
Niners, Seahawks, Cardinals, and Rams
Broncos, Raiders, Chargers, and Chiefs
What do you guys think about next year's opponents at this point?
This was the case for the 2012-13 season as well.
Edit: I should add to my point.
I'm just implying that we've seen how they've responded to a 1st place schedule. The focus/concern should be with them closing down the stretch, and their performance in the playoffs next season(If they're able to get back).
