Sharp: Breaking down Scheduling Inequalities


Recommended Posts

Interesting article about inequalities in the NFL scheduling 


Turns out we aren’t just whiny fans about getting shafted the last decade by the schedule makers.

Led the NFL in games against teams with a week+ of rest with 44 games. The league average is 29.

The Giants and Eagles are near the bottom in a lot of these categories. Skins are also in the negative. Whereas the Cowboys consistently are near the tops in getting home and rest benefits

The rest of the NFC East is ranked 29th with -8 (Skins), 31st with -11 (Eagles) and 32nd with -12 (Giants) with games on shorter rest this decade. Cowboys on the other hand were 2nd in the NFL with +10 games on shorter rest. A disparity like that in one division is obviously a big advantage. 


It’s an interesting read, obviously stuff the NFL doesn’t really think or care about.
