NFL has so much parity that looking at the previous season for strength of schedule is worthless.

The Texans got the shaft. This is a team that can't catch a break.

It has a lot to do with the division they're in. The AFC South is a good division, with two of the better teams in the AFC (Colts and Titans). The Chargers have one of the weakest schedules, but look at their division, of course its weak, what with them facing the Raiders, Broncos, and Chiefs twice a year. 6 guaranteed wins right there.

This, frankly, isn't too helpful. In an ideal world, your opponents would have bad defenses. BUT, for quarterbacks the better the opponents offense, the more likely you get a lot of passes (for QB and WR). RB wants opponents with weak offenses, so their team doesn't give up on the running game. Defenses are completely different too.

So, strength of schedule isn't the full story. But, yes, Larry Fitzgerald will destroy the NFC West once again. And yes, playing Ravens and Pittsburgh twice in a year won't help Cedric Benson at all.
