    Strength of Schedule (redux)

    I posted this once a couple of months ago link so I decided to update. I planned on posting this before the games started but it took too long to do the math plus I got sidetracked.

    Surprisingly, the Jets have had the toughest go so far and not surprisingly, the Falcons have had the easiest schedule before today.
     
       Team      Record  Opp record
    1  Jets            (5-7)  83-59 .584
    2  Jaguars    (2-10)  83-62 .572
    3  Titans         (4-8)  80-64 .556
    4  Cardinals   (4-8)  77-64 .546
    5  Rams          (5-6)  76-66 .535
    6  Lions          (4-8)  76-66 .535
    7  Panthers     (3-9)  77-68 .531
    8  Packers       (8-4)  75-67 .528
    9  Raiders      (3-10)  82-76 .519
    10 Browns       (4-8)  75-70 .517
    11 Saints         (5-7)  75-70 .517
    12 Cowboys    (6-6)  74-70 .514
    13 Dolphins    (5-7)  73-70 .510
    14 Redskins    (6-6)  73-70 .510
    15 Chiefs      (2-10)  74-72 .507
    16 Bears        (8-4)  72-70 .507
    17 Broncos    (10-3)  73-73 .500
    18 Patriots     (9-3)  72-72 .500
    19 Eagles       (3-9)  72-72 .500
    20 Seahawks  (7-5)  71-71 .500
    21 Chargers    (4-8)  73-74 .497
    22 Bills            (5-7)  71-72 .496
    23 Giants         (7-5)  70-73 .489
    24 49ers          (8-3)  69-73 .486
    25 Vikings        (6-6)  69-74 .483
    26 Steelers      (7-5)  69-77 .473
    27 Ravens       (9-3)  67-78 .462
    28 Texans      (11-1)  66-79 .455
    29 Buccaneers (6-6)  66-80 .452
    30 Bengals       (7-5)  63-83 .431
    31 Colts            (8-4)  62-82 .431
    32 Falcons     (11-1)  57-89 .390

    More numbers to ponder,

    Division records
    AFC North (27-21)
    NFC North (26-22)
    NFC South (25-23)
    AFC South (25-23)
    NFC West (24-22-2)
    AFC East (24-24)
    NFC East (22-26)
    AFC West (19-31)

    AFC vs NFC 23-27

    Edit: I miscalculated the Broncos opponent record. Adjusted 7:23 PM.

    Lookie here, check out the overrated Falcons, Colrs, Texans and Broncos. All in the bottom 10 of the league.

    Yup. And don't forget the Giants and their supposed big league schedule.

    The Patriots are just entering the meat of their schedule.

    So after the Pats play HOU and SF, who are a collective 15 games above .500, they will be in the top 5 by my calculation, maybe even as high as 3rd (depending on who TEN and AZ play).  This strength of schedule stuff is irrelevant, this isn't the BCS. But next time someone says the Pats play a weak schedule, you can advise them they're full of spit.

    Plus, the Jets SOS is jacked up by losing to the Pats twice, while the Pats SOS is knocked down by beating the Jets twice.

    This is true. The more games you lose the higher your SOS will be. If the Patriots were 0-12, they would have the toughest SOS.

     

    Another overused stat is wins against winning teams. If the Jets and Bills had won both games against the Patriots they would both have winning records.

    You shouldn't be doing this!  Everyone is saying the Pats have the easiest schedule in the NFL.  Posting these numbers is only making them look silly.  Besides, don't the Pats set up their own schedule every year to ensure it is the easiest in the NFL?  The Pats just know, in advance, what the records will be for all their opponents for next year.  Hey, Jints, do something!

    this is out-of-context and doesn't reflect much with any accuracy


    So teams aren't what they're record says they are?

    So last years records are more accurate?

    I don't see where it's out of context at all.

    They only fault that I can see in this is that the NFC is a little bit stronger than the AFC record wise and that would weigh down the SOS slightly.

    Yes, it's "out-of-context" when it doesn't suit your anti-Pats agenda. It will completely insane when New England is in the top 3.  

    Frankly, I'm not one to pay attention to this stuff, as I said above this isn't the BCS. It's irrelevant, the only thing that matters is your W-L record.  There are no Murray State's or Army's on an NFL schedule.

    But, lots of folks (yes, this means you among others) bring it up to downplay the Pats record. Well, back at ya.  I don't recall it being brought up when they went 14-2 in 2010 after playing (and defeatling) 7 playoff teams.

    I miscalculated the Broncos opponent record. Fixed. They are no longer bottom 10.
