Buffalo Bills strength of schedule


Buffalo Bills strength of schedule

Each year we take a look at the schedule for the Buffalo Bills and look at where they fall as far as strength of schedule is concerned, and what the possible outcome could be for the Buffalo Bills.

If I remember correctly, the Buffalo Bills, last year, had exactly a .500 strength of schedule which put them in the top half of the league at 14th overall.

This year, the Buffalo Bills, stayed the same as far as rankings are concerned, and have the 14th overall strength of schedule.  They did get a lower percentage than that of last years and are sitting with a .486 as far as records are concerned from the teams they will face last year.

With the easiest strength of schedule out there, the Atlanta Falcons beat out the Indianapolis Colts for the easiest schedule coming in with a .409.  Indianapolis and the Houston Texans both came in with a .417 strength to finish with the 2nd easiest schedule this year.  It helps that these teams are in terrible divisions.  I am sure that if Buffalo was there, they would be close to the top as well.

The team that has the toughest schedule and has to work their way back to the playoffs is that of the Pittsburgh Steelers.  They finished with a .579 strength of schedule with the Cincinnati Bengals coming in 2nd overall for the toughest schedule with a .563 percent strength.

The Buffalo Bills will always be right in the middle of the pack, unless there is a major push in the AFC East or a major drop off as some of these other divisions have seen and no one has a winning record, but with a pretty even breakdown in the AFC East as far as records have been going, the Buffalo Bills will always be in that middle of the pack strength of schedule each and every year.
