Hey kids! Schedule! Click the link above to go to the NFL.com page with the full 2014 schedule, and enjoy discussing it below.
Scott Kacsmar also wrote a story for ESPN Insider on which teams are helped and hurt by schedule this year compared to last year's schedule strength. It's based not on 2013 win-loss percentage, but on a formula that uses 2013 DVOA, regresses towards the mean, and then makes some small adjustments for injuries and free-agent movement. Life gets harder for the Bears, Chiefs, and 49ers, but it gets easier for the Bucs, Texans, and New York Giants.
