Indianapolis Colts have NFL's easiest schedule

Published Add your comment

The 2014 NFL schedule is still yet to be released but with all the games already decided the inevitable comparison has already begun.

ESPN's Adam Schefter has crunched the numbers and today revealed that the Indianapolis Colts have statistically the easiest schedule on paper.

Schefter tweeted today: "Colts have easiest schedule (opponents a combined 110-146). Last 2 teams with “easiest” sked, 2012 Pats and 2013 Broncos, reached Conf Champ"

It comes as no surprise that teams with easy schedules have had success in the past and the Colts have already experienced success in the past two seasons with playoff appearances.

Of course easy schedules are not always as simple as they may seem at first. Teams are always capable of making quick turnarounds from one season to another and mid-season injuries, suspensions and trades can always upset the balance.

For example, the Kansas City Chiefs went from a 2-14 season in 2012 to a 11-5 campaign last season. 

Will the Colts follow the example of the Patriots and Broncos to march to the Conference Championship? Have your say in the comments below.
