    That's a very tough schedule and I think the home schedule is a bit tougher than road. I think Miami and Buffalo are better than Denver and the Jets. Baltimore and GB are the two best teams we play next year, home or away.

    Baltimore and Green Bay are definitely the toughest games on the schedule. After that the next four toughest (IMO) are on the road. @Detroit, @Chicago (they will likely have Cutler), @New England & @New York (Houston has never beaten the Jets) should all be tough games. Buffalo, Miami (I believe Houston has never lost to the Dolphins), and Minnesota at home look like the easiest games on the schedule (not including the Jags and Colts of course). There's usually a lot changes from year to year though.

    At least we have the Dolphins again. I still don't understand what football god is allowing us to be undefeated against them, but I'll take what I can get.

    Only teams that truly give me pause are the Ravens and Packers.

    If the Patriots don't address their defensive issues, I'm not nearly as afraid of them.

    Everyone else, meh. The Lions, maybe.

    No reason to not go 11-5 at least, if we can actually stay healthy and such, you know.

    It would appear to be a much tougher schedule then this years, but you never really know.

    Actually, I'm pretty happy that the Broncos won their division. We can beat Tebow next year. The Ravens should be tough, even at home, but that's expected in a 1st place schedule.

    Am I wrong or did we not play the Broncos in Denver last year?

    If we are healthy, that schedule doesn't seem that bad. I would say of all those games there are only two games I pencil in as a loss already, Green Bay and at New England.

    Playing a 1st place schedule definitely tests the legitimacy of our playoff performance. Put up or shut up. I'm interested to see the prime time games for the Texans. I hope they are few and far between.

    They should have at least 3, including a SNF game. Probably play in Detroit on Thanksgiving, as well.

    Yep, not playing the Raiders or the Browns. That's what can happen when you win your division.
