I like the late BYE in Week 11 but the schedule turns brutal afterwards.

The post bye stretch run is certainly a challenge. Play all 3 of our division rivals on the road in the last month, plus Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck visiting Heinz, and a trip all the way out to Seattle for good measure.

If Bell's suspension stays at 3 games, at least game 2 & 3 are against NFC foes that wouldn't impact tiebreaker scenarios. We all expected the TNF opener in Foxboro for months, but at least Cheech and Chong will both be suspended together for that one, so both teams will be without their starting RB's for the opener (plus we gained DeAngelo Williams while they lost Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen).

We will be battle-tested.

Both games against the Ravens in prime time is an interesting touch too. I'm shocked that since they've gone to this scheduling format with only divisional games in week 17, that they have had us playing against Cleveland each and every time. I figured they would give us a game against Baltimore last for once, just hoping that it would be a play in game for all the marbles (the elusive 110 pointer in Lonbull's game).

Alternate away & home game for the first half of the schedule, then 3 straight 1:00 home games heading into the bye, followed by that potentially brutal stretch run.

A lot can change with the draft, camp, injuries. My initial prediction is we finish 10-6. I think that will tie us for division lead and it will come down to tie breakers. I think only one team from our division makes the playoffs. It will come down to the final game imo.

A few of these good teams won't be as advertised. It happens every year. On paper tho, it's probably the toughest schedule in the NFL

Gonna be super important to have only 2-3 losses going into the bye. I think that can be achieved.

looks like the path to the 2015 MNF Exec champion is to simply select the steelers game every week - except for oakland.......:stirpot:stirpot

Going to face some serious pass rush pressure next season... there are some good Defenses in our schedule.

How about this scheduling quirk...one game played at your home stadium in a seven week stretch...dayum.

Gone till November: Can Jaguars survive daunting early travels?

How the talented-but-young Jaguars handle a daunting eight-week, seven-game stretch from late-September through mid-November is likely to determine whether they will rise in the AFC South or remain one of the also-rans in 2015.

As they have in each of the previous two years, the Jaguars play just seven regular season home games in Jacksonville. Two of those games are right off the bat, when the Panthers (Sept. 13) and Dolphins (Sept. 20) come to town in the first two weeks.

From there, though, the schedule turns dicey.

In the next seven weeks, the Jaguars play just one game in Jacksonville. From September 27 through October 13, Jacksonville faces a three-game road swing against New England, Indianapolis and Tampa Bay.

After one week back in Jacksonville to face Houston (October 20), the Jaguars are back to stowing tray tables and rolling luggage, with a “home” game vs. Buffalo in London on October 27 coming right before their bye.

After the bye, the Jaguars are back on the road for two more games, drawing the Jets (November 8) and Ravens (November 15) in succession.

The pay-off, as you might expect, is a healthy homestand late in the season — four games in Jacksonville from November 19 through December 20. However, the Jaguars finish with road games at New Orleans and Houston — contests in which Jacksonville wouldn’t figure to be favored.

Also, about the Jaguars’ November 19th matchup vs. Tennessee. It’s on a Thursday night. Ponder this: The Jaguars, after six games away from Jacksonville in an eight-week span, finally return home to EverBank Field only to play on four days rest after facing the Ravens in Baltimore.

Schedule-making isn’t easy. And the Jaguars, by giving up that game in Jacksonville, are perhaps at greater risk of having unfavorable schedule stretches with which to deal.

But if the Jaguars are thriving in mid-November after their travels . . . well, that will be something. It would certainly be the sign of a pretty tough team.

But there are easier ways for a club to have to prove its mettle.

While the NFL didn't fulfill the request of having both West coast games in successive weeks, they did schedule them after extended periods of rest...I suppose that's something...

Honestly, if we crack .500 with this schedule it will be a feat.

9 playoff teams and 3-4 more tough games. This will prove to be a very challenging season.

The good news is that the rest of the division has virtually the same schedule...of course two games are just for Pittsburgh and the home/away can change, but 14 of 16 teams games are common.

lol yeah but the uncommon ones are first place teams.

Last years records mean nothing though, its so cyclical. The way I see it is the Patriots is a probable loss but the only guaranteed loss on the schedule is clearly the Raiders

We struggle against the easy teams anyway so to me this should only help us.

I doubt that anyone wins this division playing only 15 games. Did you mean 10-6 or 9-7?

Bruce Arians says return to Pittsburgh “just another game”

Posted by Josh Alper on April 23, 2015, 3:50 PM EDT

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Thursday that it is going to be tough to go back to Heinz Field in October, but insists that is only because they’ll have to face “a really good football team” and not because of the way his tenure on Pittsburgh’s coaching staff came to an end.

Arians spent eight years as an assistant with the Steelers, winning two Super Bowl rings and spending the last five years of his stint as the team’s offensive coordinator. His departure was originally announced as a retirement, but it wasn’t long before Arians admitted the team didn’t ask him back.

Arians has spent the last three years making clear his retirement would have been quite premature as he’s won Coach of the Year with both the Colts and Cardinals, which may be why he says there’s no extra motivation to do well on October 18 in Pittsburgh.

“It’s just another game,” Arians said, via ESPN.com. “It really is. It’s been so long now.”

The Steelers game will come a week after the Cardinals play in Detroit, a setup Arians confirms the Cardinals asked for so that they could stay in the Eastern Time Zone for both games rather than make extra flights across the country. Making sure all runs smoothly away from team headquarters should keep Arians busy enough to avoid adding any extra significance to the Pittsburgh trip down the line.

Blount won't be playing in that game either. It sucks to open up in NE, we have started so slowly the past few years. Didn't the league send us to Baltimore for our first game last year? Jeesh, this is gonna be brutal... kinda sucks too to make 2 trips to the West Coast....
