NFL Strength of Schedule- 2008

Quick, who has the easiest schedule entering the 2008 NFL Season? Dolphins? Nope. Rams? Sorry. Falcons? Wrong again.

Answer: The New England Patriots

What?! How that be?! Seriously?! You're telling me that the 17-1 Boston based team led by QB Tom Brady, WR Randy Moss and Head Coach Bill Belichick has the easiest schedule in the NFL?!

Answer: Yes

The combined winning percentage (based on 2007) of the teams on their schedule is .387; the opposing team's combined record is 99-157. Also, the second easiest schedule goes to the team the Patriots beat in the AFC Championship last season, the San Diego Chargers (.422; 109-148 record).

Rounding out the rest of the top 5 easiest schedules:

3. Raiders .438 112-144
