Election year in the great USA, what a better story than to have the Patriots the SB champs with a new prez taking over the white house!
I really don't like this schedule that much. It's not overly difficult but the game times are all over the place. Going out to Denver, then back, then out to Oakland and then a bye? God forbid if the team gets all banged up in October and doesn't get that bye week to rest up.
I'd have liked to see the divisional games spread out more too. You bunch everything up at the end of the year which is great for the networks because of the ratings close to playoff time. I'd rather have them mixed up more.
Maybe it will grow on me after while.
I'm loving this years schedule.
5 prime time games, one being against the Ravens at home, Monday nighter against the Cheifs, we havent had a Monday night game at Heinz in years. And I personally prefer the 4:00 games over the 1:00, beers and bbq go down a hell of a lot easier . Not a fan of the early bye week though../:willybs:
4 of the first 6 games are on the road, that's going to give us a good indication right out of the gate if this team can rise to the occasion on the road.
3 of the 5 games in December are at home which is definitely good. That Chargers game is an interesting one late in the year at home.
Anybody think the Steelers won't be amped up for that KC game coming up? :lol: I'm sure Haley will play it down but you know he'll want to stick it to the Chiefs.
