2015 Schedule

Recommended Posts

No, it's not out quite yet! But the leaks are starting to come and one is week 5: Browns @ Bengals, Thursday Nov. 5.

Hopefully it's better than the last Thursday night game against Cleveland...

ETA: SiriusXM says week 1 games include Steelers @ Patriots and Browns @ Jets, so scratch Cleveburg and Pitt for the opener.

Yeah it looks like a prank account. But honestly MNF at SF or Oakland (or zona) is possible...

I also like the Monday night game coming after a Thursday night game.

Houston coming into town for the Monday night game has my household all worked up.

People coming into town and all kinds of crap for that one.

Bring on the 2015 record prediction thread !!

LaCanfora thinks the Bengals drew the best Sked in the division.

I think he's right.

I have a friend over here who's a Browns fan so I had a wee peek at their schedule - gruesome run in Nov of 4 consecutive divisional games. That could be their season right there.

Very true but they open with three games against 4-12 teams.

Cleveland does have an opportunity to start fast but then hits a brutal stretch from week 4 to week 10:

@ SD

@ Baltimore

Denver

@ St. Louis

Arizona

@ Cincinnati

@ Pittsburgh

That's 5 of 7 on the road against 6 teams that were either 2014 playoff teams or had a winning record last season. And the Rams were better than their 6-10 showing. Cleveland desperately needs to take advantage of those 3 "easy" games to start the year.

Final four weeks are brutal:

Steelers

@ SF

@ Denver (MNF)

Baltimore

And Chritmas is in between. So it's not like you can stay on the West Coast during that second week.

Study says Bengals winners, Redskins losers.

Washington Redskins fans, you might not want to hear this.

University at Buffalo engineers, who have done a study on imbalances in the NFL schedule and presented it at the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference earlier this year, have studied the 2015 NFL schedule that was released this week. One of the main imbalances they look at is which teams get the most games against "rested" opponents – those coming off Thursday night games or bye weeks.

Yep, Washington got the shortest stick in that area.

Washington plays five games against opponents with extra rest this year, the UB engineers said. That's the most in the NFL. The Redskins have three games against teams coming off bye weeks and two games against teams coming off a Thursday game. That's a very high number; it's almost one-third of Washington's schedule.

Other teams shouldn't be too happy either. The Dallas Cowboys and Seattle Seahawks each have four games against opponents with extra rest. The New England Patriots, Buffalo Bills (who have frequently gotten imbalanced schedules the past few years), San Diego Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs are next at three each.

"We had a detailed look at the 2015, and we see again the imbalances are significant," said Murat Kurt, PhD, an assistant professor in UB’s Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering.

Some teams should be much happier with their draw. The Miami Dolphins, Cincinnati Bengals, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers and Arizona Cardinals don't play any games against teams coming off a bye or a Thursday night game.

This all might not seem like much, but it is a disadvantage. In a 16-game season in which playoff spots are almost always determined by just one game or tiebreakers, it's worth noting. When the engineers studied the issue they found that from 2009-13 a team's average winning percentage decreased by 3.77 percent against rested teams. In 2013 it was a decrease of about seven percent.
