the schedule really is much easier than last year
last year: they had at Oak, at Bal, and at NE that was brutal 3 game stretch. they played New England and then had at Denver on 4 days rest. At Philly (which the franchise is 0-forever) and the eventual SB champ Giants on xmas eve.
at Pitt is tough week 2 but they get SF and AZ at 1pm at home... their longest road trip is at seattle. Their other non conf are AZ, STL far easier than NFC East.
much much easier schedule
