August 7, 2014 NFLTR Features

Here’s a look at the 2014 NFL Strength of Schedule based on their opponents’ odds of winning the Super Bowl.

This offers a better idea of how hard a team’s schedule is, instead of using the average win percentage for each team’s 2013 opponents.

    I know this is strictly by last year’s numbers, but I think Jets have a lot tougher schedule than their ranking – particularly in the first half of the season -
    with games against the Packers, Bears, Lions, Chargers, Broncos, Chiefs and Steelers before their bye week. That’s brutal

    • NFL Trade Rumors

      This is based on their opponents odds of winning the Super Bowl this year.

      I agree that their schedule actually looks pretty tough based on those teams, but playing 4 games against MIA and BUF helps. They also get the Vikings, Raiders and Titans this season.

  • Buzmeg

    Does the “rank” column have any meaning, because I can’t see it? If so, please explain.

    • NFL Trade Rumors

      Yes, it does.

      The rank column shows you which team has the hardest schedule (Rams at #1). You’ll notice that a few teams are tied, but the lower the number, the harder the schedule.

  • Ron Bryant

    this list is not accurate, patriots opponents had a record of 121-135. and that is the only team i bothered checking, who knows how many others are not right

    • NFL Trade Rumors

      You just posted the record for the Patriots 2013 opponents. This is list is based on each team’s 2014 opponent winning percentage.

      I had it mislabeled above, so I do apologize for that, but I assure you these figures are correct.

  • Zach Howerton

    Dang, this just shows you how hard the AFC West is: all 4 teams, Chiefs, Chargers, Raiders, Donkey’s, are in the top 10!

    • twooutssowhat

      I think it’s more reflective of the fact they play the NFC West this year.

  • Joe Fachet

    how do the colts have the easiest schedule?? they play the eagles, steelers, ravens, patriots, broncos, bengals
    and the texans twice

    • McCashier

      Texans have 2 wins, Eagles only 9, Colts only 9, Ravens only 9. They also play the lowly jags and titans. They only have 3 hard games all season

        Crap! I was looking forward to answering that one, but I forgot about it. Thanks for laying out the reasons.
