Final Strength of Schedule for 2008

It's time to look at the Strength of Schedule for the season.  There was some debate earlier this week here, so I thought I'd make an easy-to-understand table.  If you'd like to know what the columns mean, check back a few weeks ago, where I explain the table.

Some thoughts:

  • The Colts finished at 14th toughest schedule in the league.  It was obviously front loaded, but middle of the pack when you play the Browns, Bengals, and Lions in a row.
  • Of the Playoff teams, the Dolphins (30th), Falcons (28th), and Titans (26th) played the easiest schedules.  The toughest?  Steelers (5th) and Ravens (6th).
  • Before the season, there was a lot of talk of how easy the AFC East schedule was going to be.  It definitely lived up to it.  The toughest of the bunch was the Patriots, which was 25th toughest.
  • I didn't realize how much tougher the Chargers schedule was compared to the Broncos.  It's still amazing to me how the Broncos pissed away that lead.

Again, the table is sortable by clicking on the column headers.  Enjoy!
