    For real? Only two games are decided by seed. The rest are the divisional and rotational games; fourteen of every team's games were already determined years ago and can be predicted decades into the future.

    A. You play six games against divisional opponents.

    B. You play four games against a division within your conference (three other conferences, so three year rotation). That NE would play the AFC North in 2019 was decided years in advance, just like we know they'll play them again in 2022, 2025, etc.).

    C. You play four games against a division within the opposite conference according to a four-year rotation. That NE would play the NFC East in 2019 was decided years in advance, just like we know they'll play them again in 2023, 2027, etc.).

    D. The remaining two games are against the teams in your conference who finishes in the same place in your division last year (it's not three divisions because you're already playing an entire division within your conference under "B"). Because New England (and the AFC East) are already playing the NFC North because it's their turn in the rotation, that leaves the two remaining first place AFC teams: Kansas City and Houston.

    Either that or it's a vast conspiracy designed to keep mom and pop franchises like the Dallas Cowboys down.

  2. I was always under the impression that the two teams that represented the NFC and AFC in the Super Bowl, always got a harder schedule the following season, while the league's worst teams got a favored schedule I've never heard anyone reveal the schedule for next season, until around summer.

  3. Anyways, the editor sucks. I couldn't add this. What's up with this site?

These teams come from your conference and come from the 2 divisions not used in the second bullet above.
    The final bullet is designed to pit good teams against each other and possibly to get star-studded matchups. As our Cork Gaines noted in 2014, it's why we got a surplus of Tom Brady-Peyton Manning matchups.
    I'm was in no way saying that there was some kind of conspiracy, but I do question the schedule that was given to them.

    New England played a bunch of shitty teams in their 1st 8 games, and everyone was over-rating their performance. They' finally met a legit contender (0n their Turf!) and got taken to the wood shed.

  4. Your team lost to the Jets. Just sayin'....

  5. Yeah, they've been very disappointing. But, their strenght of shedule is at #14, while the Pats competition is ranked near the bottom, and only topped by the abysmal Redskins. Oakland getting the toughest schedule doesn't even make sense.

  6. Pats played a bunch of tomato cans for sure, but so did 49ers until Monday and look what happened.

  7. Yeah, as they should, considering their record last season. San Francisco should have a softer schedule, based on their record for the previous season. While the Raiders certainly shouldn’t have the hardest schedule this season, after being so bad in 2018. Yet, somehow the RAMs and Pats are tied at 27th for strength of schedule, which does not make sense, because I’ve always heard that the bad teams will get a softer schedule the following season, while the top teams get better competition.

  8. That's just how it goes right, you play games in your division and also rotate with one of the other conf every 4 years. The only remaining ones that Pats have look pretty strong to me.

    The site says exactly what I said: two games are seeded based on divisional placement. Fourteen are rotational.

    So, yes, the better your divisional finish, the tougher your schedule is...for two games.

    The order of the games is decided over the summer, but the opponents you'll play in a given year (outside of the two seeded games based on the previous year's performance) can be tracked into the year ten billion like the lunar calendar if you want.

  10. This year, AFC East seems hilariously bad because of Jets and Dolphins. But, Bills is actually decent if offensively challenged.
