Looking Ahead: 2008 Strength of Schedule -- Correction

Correction: We neglected to factor the Steelers' divisional opponents records in twice. The original winning percentage we calculated was .630, the corrected percentage is .607.

With the 2007 season now concluded it's time to look ahead -- and be afraid, very afraid. Here is the won-loss record (and winning percentage) of each of the Steelers' 2008 opponents:

WLPCT.
New England1601.000
Dallas133.813
Indianapolis133.813
Jacksonville115.688
San Diego115.688
N.Y. Giants106.625
Tennessee106.625
Cleveland106.625

Philadelphia88.500
Cincinnati79.438
Cincinnati79.438
Baltimore511.313
Baltimore511.313

The Steelers won't have the toughest schedule (after all Cincinnati and Baltimore have to play the Steelers), but to provide some context, coming into the 2007 season the Steelers' opponents had a winning percentage of .512, and the Raiders and Bills had the NFL's toughest schedules -- their respective opponents had .539 winning percentages.
