2018 Opponents

Recommended Posts

Home:  Jags, Titans, Colts, Bills, Dolphins, Cowboys,  Giants,  Browns

Away: Jags, Titans, Colts, Patriots,  Jets, Eagles,  Redskins, Broncos

 

I guess thats one positive of us sucking this season.  We get a last place schedule vs AFC teams.

The only they'll be saying to the Patriots is "Thank you, Sir, may I have some more"

Somebody needs to explain why the NFL draft order uses a different calculation for draft seeding than the playoffs / scheduling.  We lose to the Colts twice and because their wins were over the lowly Texans twice, Browns, and 49ers and we beat the Titans, Cardinals, and Bengals in addition to the Browns they are "worse" than us based on "strength of schedule" tiebreaker.  This seems to be built on a mathematical circular reasoning flaw as it essentially devalues their wins over us since beating us reduces their strength of schedule by lowering our record.  They lost to Bengals, we lost to the 49ers.  We didn't get "credit" for losing to the 5-11 Broncos and 9-7 Bills because we lost to the 13-3 Patriots and 10-6 Chiefs instead.  Essentially beating the Titans once is more relevant to reverse seeding than losing to the actual team we are "tied" with twice or us losing to the worst common opponent.

BTW - The "last place schedule" is a total myth.  We play the exact same schedule as everyone else in the division except 2 games which buys us the Browns who rebuild with 2 of the top 4 picks and 4 of the top 38 on top of last years #1 overall and a Broncos team that will be favored for a playoff spot if not Super Bowl if they bring in a QB (Cousins, Manning, Allen?).  The Titans 2nd place schedule buys them the Ravens at home and Chargers "on the road" aka essentially a neutral site.  Sorry Denver in Denver is worse, so for all of our 4-12 effort we get a 3rd round pick behind the Colts and schedule harder than the Titans.   We can't even get being "the worst in the worst division" right.

The Jags are essentially the Texans from a couple years ago. Real good defense, good running game....ALMOST competent QB known for giving games away.

IF Bortles doesn't figure out a way to give the game to the Bills, and IF they even see the Patriots, they'll have the same result as Houston. Tom Brady and Belichik figuring out how to pick them apart.
