Before the NFL schedule is released on Tuesday, the strength of schedule was released for all 32 teams. The Bears have the easiest schedule, with an opponent’s winning percentage of 0.414. It should come as no surprise that the other 2 teams in the NFC North have the second and third easiest schedules thanks to the fourth “team” – the Lions – and their 0-16 record from 2008. The Steelers have the next easiest schedule after the NFC North, which seems kind of unfair since they just won the Super Bowl last season. Of course this is all completely meaningless since teams all change so much during the offseason that last season’s records are essentially meaningless, but it’s fun to think about.
