    It may be a good indicator, but all teams follow the same formula for their schedules.

    -6 Division Games

    -4 Against Opposite Conference of a selected Divsion (this year the NFC North plays the AFC North; these are rotated every year. So, every 4 years we will play the AFC North)

    -3 Against an NFC Conference (this year we got the NFC South)

    -3 Against the other 3 teams in the NFC that finished the same spot in their Division (we were 2nd palce last year, we play St. Louis, New Orleans, and NYG. They all finished 2nd in their Division)

    That is the formula my friends. Its the same for the entire NFL and its fair.
