Saints "Easy" Schedule to end the year.
I remember thinking the back 8 would be a cake walk compared to the first 8, but every team left is in the playoff hunt (Carolina is barely there). We are not in SF territory, but the Seahawks and Packers have a much easier schedule than us heading into the last 4 weeks.

The Titans and Colts have been hit or miss, so hopefully we get the bad versions of them. I don't see us being able to sit our players in week 17.

The Titans strength is the run, our strength on defense is stopping the run. We also get the Titans between Houston. They play Houston, then us, then Houston

Seahawks and Packers



Packers yes Seahawks no. I wouldn’t exactly call what they have left easy. @LA and a game against Frisco which will likely be for the NFC West Crown and a potential bye. Arizona is unpredictable but they could give them a tough game. They gave the Niners all they could handle both times.

Our schedule is harder for sure but I’m not worried about Indy or @Carolina. Tennessee and San Francisco are more troubling than the other two. At worst I think we finish 12-4. Though I think we need 14-2 to grab the 1 seed. We need a Seattle loss to LA as well. But if we beat San Fran then I think we finish at least as the 2 seed. Seattle ain’t winning out. Neither is Frisco. Hell, the Packers might very well lose to Minnesota. Vikings aren’t playing bad ball right now. It’s going to be a wild last four weeks

It's a Monday night game, Vikings have no shot.

There are not unreasonable scenarios where the 2nd wild card team is at 12-4. It might also be possible this year for Dallas to win their division at 6-10.
1. Saints 14-2
2. Seattle 13-3
3. GB 12-4
4. Dallas 6-10
5. San Fran 13-3
6. Minnesota 12-4

This should serve as a reminder that the cowboys suck.

chances that Rodgers connects on a Hail Mary pass in that game?

like 2 to 1 at worst?

This is precisely why complaining about a schedule before the season is pointless (minus things like a road MNF game followed by a road TNF game.

re: Saints "Easy" Schedule to end the year.
it looks like the titans will face us with a chance to win a wildcard spot so they comin in with intent and its not a meaningless game like carolina. plus they have been playing very well the last 5 games

the colts though, i think may have no motivation with nothing on the line, but then they too might be looking at some 25% chance for a wildcard spot if other teams lose

after 9ers, the only easy game there is carolina and we may or may not phone that one in, but i suspect teddy will play the game with backups and drew sits with the rest of the starters

They are 1 game back on the Titans and the wild card spot and 2 games out of the division. Unless the lose to Tampa, they will still be very much alive when we play them

Would be pretty impressive to have it locked up by then for a team with a "2-10 body"

9ers and Titans are really good teams. Colts are pretty good, but inconsistent. They have had a lot of injuries.

They will likely be close games like Houston and Seattle.

I'll give you a little traction on playing Houston in front of us but how on earth does it matter who they play after us???

re: Saints "Easy" Schedule to end the year.
I saw a post earlier today that the Saints have the 3rd hardest schedule remaining in the league

which to me is amazing b/c it seems like we haven't had a week to breath at all (maybe Tampa games)

The hard schedule at the beginning of the season is now considered easy with the exception of seattle.
