Toughest 2017 NFL Schedules
The team with the toughest schedule based on the records of their opponents from last season is the Denver Broncos. The Broncos face teams that were 148-108 last season, for a winning percentage of .578. Teams from the AFC West have the four most difficult schedules for 2017, as the Chiefs have the second-toughest schedule, as their opponents had a .576 winning percentage, the Los Angeles Chargers the third-toughest schedule at .568 and the Oakland Raiders with the fourth-toughest schedule at .564.
It will not be easy for new head coach Vance Joseph in Denver this season. The Broncos play half of their games against teams that finished with a winning record in 2016.
Easiest 2017 NFL Schedules
The easiest schedule for 2017 belongs to the Indianapolis Colts, as their opponents had a winning percentage of .424 last season. Two other teams from the AFC South have the next easiest schedules, as the Jacksonville Jaguars face opponents that combined to have a .439 winning percentage last season, while the Tennessee Titans also face opponents who combined for a .439 winning percentage.
The Colts could have a nice bounce back season if they can keep Andrew Luck healthy. The Colts definitely won’t have any excuses based on what is ranked as the easiest NFL schedule for 2017.
Under the Radar Tough Schedule
It could be a tough season for the New York Giants based on their 2017 schedule. The Giants don’t have the most difficult schedule based on opponent’s winning percentage from last season but they have to deal with a lot of travel and they play three games against teams coming off their bye week. They also play the Cowboys when Dallas will have 10 days of rest.
Perhaps the biggest problem for the Giants is their travel. They have to travel to the Pacific and Mountain time zones a total of four times and they play on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. And the Giants start by playing three of their first four games on the road. “I know we have three of our first four on the road, but you can only handle them one at a time,” head coach Bob McAdoo said to Giants.com. “Right now, all we have to do is focus on Dallas. We’re getting ready yesterday.”
