Schedule. Smedule

Quite a bit has been said about the schedule the Bears have had during their 5 game winning streak, but I never really thought to look into those of the rest of the league.  Jesse over at No Huddle did that and found a few interesting tidbits.

-Other than the Patriots who are in a division that will be won with a 9-7 record, the only playoff-bound team in the ten hardest schedules are the Broncos. Right after them are the Bengals, Steelers, Jaguars, and Colts.

-As of right now the Seahawks have played the fourth-easiest schedule, yet everyone is talking Super Bowl. The Cowboys are only three spots higher.

-Patriots' fans are moaning because they are getting picked on with a touch schedule (note: schedule's are predecided long in advance based on a formula, they might have front-loaded the schedule, but that just makes it easier in the second half, and gets them healthy by the playoffs [maybe]), but the team with the hardest schedule is-the Dolphins. The Patriots don't even have the toughest schedule in their division. Sure it's not easy, but it's not the toughest (Kind of like how U of M is the second best law school in Ann Arbor).
