So New England's 7.1 percent chance of going 16-0 only works out to a 2.3 percent chance of going 19-0.

ESPN: Hardest/Easiest Schedules Remaining

Today's ESPN Insider feature looks at the teams with the toughest and easiest remaining schedules. Rather than simply using average DVOA of remaining opponents, we ranked schedules by going through game-by-game to figure out how often an average (0.0%) DVOA team would be expected to win each game, accounting for both the opponent and whether the game was on the road or at home.
