SOS that actually makes sense

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; this analysis looks at FA, the draft, etc, not last year's records https://sports.yahoo.com/news/update...0026--nfl.html...

Re: SOS that actually makes sense

Thanks Roger!

Saints (#13 opponent increase, #15 SOS)

Like the Buccaneers above, the Saints are primarily impacted by having to play the AFC and NFC West. Both divisions have been taking money toward the over on win totals with the exceptions of the Broncos and Rams. That said, their overall schedule strength increased just 8% above average.

The Saints are one of eight teams with only one back-to-back road game stretch, but it comes in Weeks 14 and 15, and leaves them closing the season with 3 of 4 games on the road, one of only four teams to do so. New Orleans has an easier start (Weeks 1-4) and finish (Weeks 12-17), but the stretch from Weeks 6 through 11 is by far the most brutal of any team this year. They face the Panthers twice, the Seahawks, Broncos and Chiefs during that span. And New Orleans has an incredible homefield edge, but hosts just one primetime game (Week 3 vs ATL).
