With the schedule being released last night there was a look at the strength of schedule and where everyone fell.  With strength of schedule we look at the opponents from last season and where they finished.  Really, it could be taken with a grain of salt as each team could for argument purposes not be anywhere close to where they were last year.  Injuries happen, better coaching comes along, or the team just tanks.  For entertainment value at this point lets look to see where the Bills fall compared to the rest of the league.

The Buffalo Bills are not first but they are not last either.  The Bills fall closer to the bottom with a weaker schedule, than most of the teams.  There are only 4 other teams that have a weaker schedule than the Bills.  Two teams have an equal strength of schedule as the Bills do.

The Buffalo Bills sit 7th from the bottom with a strength of schedule at .473.  The Texans and the Chiefs sit at the same with the Raiders, Colts, Chargers and Broncos finishing out the lowest strengths of schedule.

The Jets sit with a .496 strength, the Patriots are at a .508 and the Dolphins round out the AFC East with a .520.

The Carolina Panthers are atop the league with a .543 Strength of Schedule.
