2016 Saints Schedule

2016 NFL strength of schedule: 49ers, Falcons at No. 1, Packers at No. 32 - CBSSports.com

(excerpt) T-1. San Francisco 49ers: 142-114, .555

T-1. Atlanta Falcons: 142-114, .555

3. Los Angeles Rams: 141-115, .551

4. New Orleans Saints: 140-116, .547

...If you're curious about the scheduling formula, here's how the NFL does it: Under the formula implemented in 2002, every team plays 16 games as follows --

Home and away against its three division opponents (six games).

The four teams from another division within its conference on a rotating three-year cycle (four games).

The four teams from a division in the other conference on a rotating four-year cycle (four games).

Two intraconference games based on the prior year's standings (two games).

These games match a first-place team against the first-place teams in the two same-conference divisions that the team is not scheduled to play that season. The second-place, third-place, and fourth-place teams in a conference are matched in the same way each year.

Beginning in 2010, a change was made to how teams are paired in the schedule rotation to ensure that teams playing the AFC and NFC West divisions would not be required to make two West Coast trips (e.g., at San Francisco and at Seattle), while other teams in their division had none (e.g., at St. Louis and at Arizona).

Don't shocked if the NFL changes up the last part of that formula now that the Rams are in L.A...

Maybe the Giants and Chiefs games will be early in the year before the weather turns cold.

I'm hoping for a early season game at Arrowhead, being 2.5 hours away I am planning to attend this one.

there's plenty of time for rosters to roll over so by the time September rolls around, SOS doesn't mean a thing

Re: 2016 Saints Schedule

SOS is very important.
for example, in the Super Bowl, Denver's opponent had a winning % of .944, so Denver had no chance

To be the best you have to beat the best. It's cliché but it's true. Hardened by fire. If.....if we can set the tone early and stay healthy we should be alright.
