SOS for last
season means almost nothing.
The combined SOS for the Vikings and Colts going to 2012 was 5-27. We all thought we'd breeze by Minn and most of us thought we'd sweep Indy. Both teams were playoff teams in 2012, had a combined record of 21-9 and both teams beat us quite handily.
Actually I just remembered I found our 2012 SOS based on that year's W-L rather than the previous, and we had the toughest schedule in the AFC.
So yes, here's hoping our sched is easier...I'm a glass half empty guy though.
