Scheduletron: Strength of schedule, rushing

Baltimore and Seattle had the league’s two best rushing offenses at the end of last year. They also, as luck would have it, project to play the easiest schedules against the run in the upcoming season.  more »

Scheduletron: Strength of schedule

I’m not a big fan of strength of schedule. It’s fun to speculate about beating up on a string of cupcake defenses, but in reality it’s hard to tap into any meaningful sort of meaningful advantage.  more »

Scheduletron: Strength of schedule

A sportsbook in Las Vegas has released projected win totals for 2018 – the first on-the-record indication of how teams might perform in the upcoming season. And we can then engineer those numbers into the schedule, getting an idea of which offenses might benefit from easy schedule.  more »

Scheduletron: Updated strength of schedule

“Strength of Victory” shows up in the NFL’s tiebreaking procedures. It’s like Strength of Schedule but is designed to better paint a picture of how good a team might be. It’s a measure of strength of schedule, but looking at only games that teams won.  more »

Scheduletron: Remaining strength of schedule

Week 13 is in the books, so time for a quick check-in with strength of schedule. Giving it to you two ways this week – once with the traditional wins and losses, and once with touchdowns allowed by defenses.  more »

Scheduletron: Updated strength of schedule

The AFC West has become a contested race, with Kansas City running out of steam and the Chargers surging. Both teams potentially could benefit from easy schedules down the stretch. (Best to emphasize “potentially” because Los Angeles has frittered away plenty of games this year, while Kansas City has been unable to take advantage of lesser opponents in recent weeks.)   more »

Scheduletron: Updated strength of schedule

Teams are jockeying for playoff spots, and schedule should play a role in who wins (and who puts up big numbers) in the closing weeks. Some teams will play much easier closing schedules than others.   more »

Scheduletron: Updated strength of schedule

Looking at the remaining schedules, three teams pop out. Jacksonville, Kansas City and Baltimore. I think all three of those are going to benefit from playing easy schedules the rest of the way.  more »

Scheduletron: Updated strength of schedule

At this time of the year, it makes sense to pay a lot more attention to strength of schedule. Now we’ve got a pretty good idea of what offenses are all about, but we also know a lot more about defenses – not what they did way back in 2016, but what they’re doing right now. And schedule says a lot about teams like the Jaguars, Lions and Rams.   more »

Scheduletron: Revised strength of schedule

The Raiders project to play the league’s hardest schedule, with opponents allowing only 21.4 points per game on average. But I’m skeptical. Playing around with the numbers, I’m more inclined to believe Oakland will have one of the easier schedules.   more »

Scheduletron: Strength of schedule

I spent a little more time looking at Strength of Schedule. It had been a topic of discussion on Friday. I am not excited about the numbers. Probably best to just leave it alone.  more »

Scheduletron: Strength of schedule for 2017 season

In the NFL, it’s not only how good you are, it’s who you play. An easier schedule can provide the lift from being a 7-9 also-ran and a 9-7 wild card. And with that in mind, an early look at Strength of Schedule for the 2017 season.  more »

Scheduletron: Updated strength of schedule

Week 10 is in the books, so let me offer a re-calibrated look at Strength of Schedule. At this point in the year, better to look at the here and now, rather than stuff way down the road, so I’m looking at the average totals for the next four games for each team. (For most teams, this is Weeks 11-14; for the few with a bye left, it’s Weeks 11-15).   more »
