NFL strength in the schedule: Steelers and Browns have hardest remaining options, Packers have easiest third

With a calendar starting in December, you’d think Pictures of the NFL playoffs should be improving a bit at this point, but somehow it looks like things have just gotten worse over the past few weeks.

With just six weeks to go until the season kicks off, we still haven’t seen a team qualify for the playoffs. We also haven’t seen a single team get knocked out of the playoffs (yes, that means 0-10-1). Lion still exist mathematically).

If you’re trying to figure out who will make it to the knockouts, one way to make an educated guess is to look at the remaining strength in each candidate’s schedule in the playoffs. For example, although Eagle currently on the outside looking at the NFC playoff race, things are really shaping up for them in the long run and that’s because they have the fifth-easiest remaining strength schedule of any team in NFL.

In their last five matches, the Eagles will only play against a team that currently has a winning record ( Cowboys). On the other hand, Brown will have to overcome the toughest schedule remaining in the NFL if they are to make it to the knockout stages. Not only do all five of their remaining opponents have a record of 500 points or more, but the Browns also have to face the top of the AFC group (Ravens) and the current 2nd team in NFC (Packers). On top of that, they also have to play Bengali, Raiders and Steelsmith.

The Browns are one of three teams with remaining schedule strength above 0.600.

The only upside for the Browns is that every team in the AFC North faces a tough schedule in the long run. Among the 5 teams with the most difficult schedule remaining, 4 of them belong to the teams in the Northern AFC.

At the other end of the spectrum, Titan has the easiest remaining schedule. Tennessee’s final five opponents have an aggregate win percentage of just 0.366, the lowest in the league to date. Going into Week 13, no other team in the NFL has a remaining schedule even below 0.400.

NS Quantity and the Packers have the next two easiest schedules, which should make things interesting in the battle for the top seed in NFC.

Here are the remaining strengths on each team’s schedule.
