Reaction after the jump.
The NFL does us no favors by looking to mirror the 2007 season with a mid-season fight with the Patriots in Week Eleven followed by a visit from the Chargers in Week Twelve. Interesting that the Colts play the Titans only in the second half of the season, and within three weeks of each other. The Raiders game at the end of the year will not be easy, and having to go to Denver after a late night game against the Giants is kind of ugh.
However, we're used to tough schedules, and when you are 14-2 and the AFC Champs, you should have a tough schedule.
Oh, and I'm annoyed our game with the Cowboys is not on Thanksgiving. Maybe Jerry was worried we'd embarrass him and his team in our better stadium.
