Overall, this is about as favorable a schedule one could expect considering the teams we have to play. I expect them to do the Youngstown stop over between Minnesota and New York in weeks 3-4 again. In fact, they probably asked the league to specifically arrange for one such opportunity with two road games this year. Then there's only three 10am starts, and only one after week 4, which will be negated by staying in Youngstown. That's very nice considering the last several years issues of 10am starts, last year aside.
In some ways this is an "easier" schedule than last year's. The teams are just tougher overall, in theory. But there's nothing as insane as a Thursday night game in Baltimore after a Sunday afternoon home game.
