Default Look at our Opponents

Here is our schedule through week 12:

San Diego 9-3 L
at Detroit 5-7 L
at K.C. 4-8 W
Oakland 4-8 W
Minnesota 7-5 L
at Tennessee 4-8 W
Jacksonville 6-6 W
at Denver 7-5 L
at Indianapolis 9-3 L
Green Bay 7-5 L
Tennessee 4-8 W
at NY Jets 9-3 L
Remaining Games
Indianapolis 9-3
at Chicago 5-7
at Jacksonville 6-6
Cleveland 3-9

The only loss against a team with a losing record was the one to Detroit on the road. We have not beaten a team with a winning record. We were close in the San Diego, Minnesota, and Green Bay games, all at home against winning teams. We beat Jacksonville, a .500 team, at home. Our last three road games have all been against teams with winning records, and we have been driven in those games. You can make a profile from all of this:
1. We can take care of losing teams at home.
2. We can compete with winning teams at home, but we haven't learned how to finish these games.
3. We can compete with losing teams on the road.
4. We will get driven by winning teams on the road.

With this in mind, I think we will be competitive against the Colts this week but lose. We will probably beat either Chicago or Jacksonville, but probably not both, and we will manhandle Cleveland. We are a model of mediocrity.
