Not everybody has a nightmare schedule for the rest of the season. Some teams may not even have to get out of bed Sunday morning.
Easiest remaining schedules based on opponents' won-loss records: Lions 23-41 .359 Bills 20-34 .370 Packers 26-38 .406— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 17, 2013
The Lions benefit from this the most, as they are in *checks, re-checks NFC North standings* first place over the Bears and Packers. The Bills are the Bills and the Packers are short one Aaron Rodgers, so they might break even, if they’re lucky, and nothing else breaks.
The 5-5 Eagles have the Cardinals, Lions, Vikings, Bears, and Cowboys after next week’s bye, making their current opponents an appropriate 23-23. If nothing else, they remain one of the NFL’s most balanced teams. Numerically.
