So I read an interesting post on ESPN today about schdule strength. Here is an interesting snip, Here is a look at our schedule. Looking at last years stats is useless since so many teams made changes, so instead I used this years ESPN power rankings. (Yes, I know its still too early to tell and all that) PHILADELPHIA EAGLES (15) @ Indianapolis Colts (4) WASHINGTON REDSKINS (14) MIAMI DOLPHINS (9) @ Dallas Cowboys (8) JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS (11) @ Tennessee Titans (26) @ New York Giants (10) @ Jacksonville Jaguars (11) BUFFALO BILLS (30) @ New York Jets (31) @ Oakland Raiders (25) TENNESSEE TITANS (26) @ New England Patriots (7) INDIANAPOLIS COLTS (4) CLEVELAND BROWNS (27) We play 6 games against top 10 rated teams. We play 4 games against middle rated teams. We play 6 games against bottom 10 rated teams. Our average opponent "ranking" is 16 So interestingly enough, our schedule seems somewhat "balanced." Here are some other observations: -Our first 4 games are all against potential playoff teams (averaging ranking in top 10) -After our bye week we have 6 of our 8 games on the road. -If you consider the top 12 to be playoff teams, we have 8 games against these. Basically, we look to have a pretty tough schedule. We have some very tough games to start the season, a long road trip, and tough competition. I hope people will take this into consideration when looking at our record this season.
