The Strength of the 2007 Schedule

The NFL wizards have compiled the relative strength of each team's schedule -- the Steelers, despite their 8-8 record in 2006 play the NFL's 10th most difficult schedule, and the AFC North's second toughest schedule (two spots below Cincinnati).

The Steelers play four teams who made the playoffs last season (Seahawks, Jets, Patriots, and Ravens) and ten games versus teams whose 2006 winning percentage was .500 or better.

According to NFL the Buffalo Bills and Oakland Raiders have the toughest schedules this year -- the 2006 winning precentage of their respective 2007 opponents was .539 -- while the Arizona Cardinals have the easiest (.461).
