Based on opponent record of 2012 season, Carolina Panthers will have the toughest strength of schedule in 20143. While Denver Broncos will enjoy their easiest strength of schedule for 2013, seems NFL already gifted Denver for a postseason ticket before the 2013 NFL season even starts.

 Thanks for posting the article link.

So draft P.Manning over Cam Newton in FFB then... Nah. I'd still rather have Cam despite the rough schedule... of course I'll need a good 2nd since Cam is usually up and down during the season. The Panthers are one of the hardest teams to predict thier gameplan on a week to week basis. The Broncos are way easier... One main RB, two main recievers and Manning getting 30+ attempts.

Most Difficult Schedules in 2013 (based on 2012 Records)

Carolina Panthers - S.O.S. = .543

Detroit Lions - S.O.S. = .539

New Orleans Saints - S.O.S. = .539

St.Louis Rams - S.O.S. = .539

Baltimore Ravens - S.O.S. = .535

S.O.S. = Strength of Schedule

Based on these teams previous season performances... It is safe to say that the Lions are also S.O.L.

The Saints will win thier division in my opinion... Falcons without Tony Gonzalez will not be the same... thier run game and run defense are lame and teams will figure them out much easier in 2013... They just don't have enough to get it done in my opinion.

I still expect the Saints Drew Brees, Jimmy Graham and Darren Sproles to be fantasy gold for me... as well as Cam Newton if I can't get Brees on any of my teams. The Rams, under 2nd year HC Fisher, should continue to improve... especially on Defense. I feel that the Rams will give SEA and AZ a good run at the #2 spot in the NFC Western Division with SF darn near a sure thing barring multiple major injuries.

As for the Ravens... I expect Flacco to be a so-so QB once again in the regular season. Thier running game looks secure with Rice now having other RB's to take up some of his slack. The most interesting thing to watch for with the Ravens will be thier defense... and what it will look like in 2013 once all is decided as far as who will be where. I'd bet that the Ravens will go heavy in the draft for defensive linemen and middles. And will they be keeping Anquan Boldin at WR. He was huge for them during thier run in 2012. He said he might retire. I think that if the Steelers get healthy and stay that way... that they will be the team to beat again in the AFC North.

When it comes to a sports off-season... The NFL is bar far the leader in generating interest (from me)... just as they are during the season.

America's # 1 professional sport... by a dozen country miles.

I still have to check out the link you posted here Europa... I got the stats that I posted from the NFL Network today.

Gonna be a 3 hr break between NHL games today so I'll be checking out your link at that time... and probably posting more comments here after viewing the entire S.O.S. list the 2013 season.

Two months until the 2013 Draft... Six months until Hall of Fame game and preseason football... Plenty of time to review last season and renew hope for the upcoming 2013 season... I CAN'T WAIT ALREADY!!!!!!! ... Only been one week and I'm having withdrawls... ... We need a 20 game regular season with multiple bye weeks for each team... just make the season longer and the off season shorter please... more playoff games/teams... start a summer non-arena league again for a talent pool for NFL teams... whatever it takes... just give us more football please... 

Thanks Again Europa

I think the Steelers are gonna take a step back, Salary cap problems and Big Ben getting fat and old.. Ravens probably take a step back as well
