    It is probably only ranked so bad because we get the Skins and Giants for a quarter of the schedule.

    Poor Raiders, that's a pretty brutal schedule. Six tough division games, plus NFC West, and Patriots.

    I never put much stock into strength of schedule. It can tell you based on the past season but can't tell you what team is going to step up. I'm sure KC did not look like a hard game before the start of the 2013 season that changed on the other hand Houston looked to be a true contender and fell flat.

    Does anyone have what last years projected strength of schedule was and what it actually ended up to be? In a league with such swings, how much does this really mean outside of the top 2 or 3 on each end?

    This site shows the SoS rankings (but not the winning percentages) before and after the season.
    Some of the more notable ones:
    - Lions expected to have 2nd hardest schedule but in reality it was the 29th!
    - Packers expected the 6th hardest and got the 30th.
    - Bucs expected middle of the pack but their opponents won the most.
    - Texans expected 26th hardest, got 2nd hardest instead!
    - Poor Raiders expected the 29th hardest but got the 8th.

    Cowboys schedule looked 24th hardest, wound up being 21st.

    Exactly. Way too many surprises in this league each year to try and guess this far in advance which schedules are going to be the easiest or hardest.

    true, this will all change once the cowboys start to steam roll everyone, making their opponent's SOS MUCH higher :D

    I wish they added strength of schedule outside a team's own division.
