    Remember how the Pats supposedly had the easiest schedule in decades?

    Well, right now, all of NE's opponents (past and future) have a combined record of 42-41 (.506), which ranks 14th.

    Conversely, the Colts, who were supposed to have the second-hardest schedule preseason, have opponents with a combined record of 38-46 (.452), which ranks 30th.

    That happens every year...not just this one...when one looks early...and PAST records..it changed because of what teams do this year...it's no revelation..just what happens...Don't even think it's worth a thread...

    The fact that it happens, obviously not.

    But the exact numbers, I'd say, at least make it worth pointing out.
