Strength of schedule


In conversations about the Packers, one theme that keeps coming up constantly is that "their schedule is not that tough" or "who have they really played other than cream puffs like the Rams or Broncos". So I decided to take a look at the remaining schedule to calculate Strength of Schedule based on the team records so far, 7 weeks into the season. As we all know, teams change and in many cases, a team's record in the prior year may not be a good or reliable indicator of their record the next year. 

Here is the current strength of schedule based on the 2010 regular season records:

Rank Team Strength of Schedule
1 Carolina 0.555
2 Buffalo 0.535
3 NY Jets 0.520
3 Indianapolis 0.520
3 Jacksonville 0.520
3 Denver 0.520
3 Kansas City 0.520
3 San Diego 0.520
3 Detroit 0.520
10 Miami 0.516
10 Houston 0.516
10 Minnesota 0.516
13 Green Bay 0.508
13 New Orleans 0.508
15 New England 0.504
15 Dallas 0.504
15 Philadelphia 0.504
18 Tampa Bay 0.496
19 Cleveland 0.492
19 Oakland 0.492
19 NY Giants 0.492
19 Atlanta 0.492
23 Tennessee 0.488
23 Chicago 0.488
23 Seattle 0.488
26 St. Louis 0.477
27 Cincinnati 0.473
27 Pittsburgh 0.473
27 Washington 0.473
30 San Francisco 0.465
31 Baltimore 0.457
32 Arizona 0.441

 

Here is the revised table based on the team records through week 7:

Rank Team Strength of Schedule
1 San Diego 0.591

2 Minnesota 0.590
