My Bucs delt the 4th toughest schedule in the league. Opening with NO, then PHI & PIT in the 1st 3 games! They have started the "hype wagon" down her but after last year I am resolute on the wait & see approach.
With the schedule set by algorithm, the way to get an easier schedule is to be better. You have 12 of the games equal to your division opponents, 2 of them against the division opponent, and only 2 that are a function of where you place the previous year.
Yes I realize the opponents are set in stone regarding who will play who.
But knowing how things go down here in Tampa, this schedule still has impending doom music in the background for me!
I am still hoping for the best, while expecting the worst...
By win percentage, the Packers have the toughest schedule, but that statistical "toughness" is always a mirage. Teams change every year; some get better, and some get worse.
The Packers' greatest concern is October-November, when they have 4 of 5 games on the road, against tough teams, with LOTS of miles to travel between them.
