Your post is actually innacurate. The Saints have the "toughest schedule" (if you believe in such a thing) because they won the division. It puts them with other division winners in head to head matchups.

According to that list (even though they never seem to be accurate at the end of the year), we have the toughest schedule in the division.

We didnt win the division the year before we got the #1 ranking.

ESPN releases this every pre-season based only off of 2011, but it never factors in the new rosters for 2012. I think factoring that in we should be closer to 15-16.

Just going off these flawed preseason SoS's, we had the tougher schedule last year and this one. This is partially predicated on the fact that we play them and they play us (them being the "tougher team" between the two of us).

I swear Atlanta ALWAYS gets the easiest opponents.

I'm convinced that Robert Kraft is blowing Roger. His teams always get the "favorable" calls, every game I watch The Pats are obviously favored by the refs. Had it not been for Welkers drop... The Pats would have won that game too.

Bottom line is I think that there is something behind the scenes going on with the Pats' organization, and the NFL; any other fan of any other team (except for Pats fans) always agree with me.

holy asinine opinion batman!

the league doesn't just randomly decide what team gets to play what team. there's a rotating schedule of AFC/NFC matchups and similar interconference structure. there is no room for anyone to monkey with the system. any trends that seem to allow one team to consistently play weaker opponents is simply a combination of either playing in a weak division or the fortuitous timing of teams rising and falling.

Do you even understand how NFL scheduling works? Like, at all? Check where the other teams from the AFC East are in the list, then think about it. Jesus.

How in the hell did the Patriots end up with the weakest schedule? .453 opposing winning %

Because they get to play the AFC South (last year's worst conference) and the NFC West based upon yearly rotation, plus none of the teams in their division had a winning record.

You can point to the other things if you want to, but them having the weakest schedule has ZERO to do with "behind the scenes stuff". 14 out of the 16 games were set in stone years ago.

LOL....I don't know what other team fans you are talking to but it must be on a NFL Conspiracy forum.

Here is the opponent schedule for every team through 2017 except for the Patriots because....well, the fix is on and it would be much harder to pull off if they published their schedule so far out.
