OK, I don't mean to look ahead when we've got a first round playoff game coming up, but the NFL released the matchups for 2009. We play the AFC East and NFC West, plus Denver and Baltimore (and our division). Here's what it looks like:
Home: NE, NYJ, Denver, SF, Seattle, divisional games
Away: Miami, Buffalo, Arizona, St. Louis, Baltimore, divisional games
I would say it's a so-so schedule. I wouldn't call it hard, but it's by no means easy either. A lot will depend on timing; I'd hate to play in Buffalo at the end of the season with snow and wind.
