This just in, the Steelers have the toughest 2015 schedule based on last year's records.
The key part of that, of course, is "based on last year's records."
As we all know, last year won't mean diddly once the 2015 season begins.
The San Francisco 49ers were chic pick to win the Super Bowl this season in many circles. They struggled to an 8-8 record that saw them fire head coach Jim Harbaugh.
The Houston Texans went from being 2-14 and having the first pick in the draft to being a very competitive 9-7.
The NFC South went from being a division that included a 12-win Carolina team and an 11-win Saints club to a division in which none of the teams finished over .500.
The point being, nobody knows what's going to happen this offseason. Some teams will get better. Some will get worse. And the Browns will continue to be the Browns.
But I digress.
Certainly, the Steelers 2015 schedule does look daunting. But it's not all that different from the one the rest of the division will be saddled with as well.
Here's Pittsburgh's schedule:
|Home||Baltimore, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Denver, Oakland, Arizona, San Francisco, Indianapolis|
|Away||Baltimore, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Kansas City, San Diego, St. Louis, Seattle, New England|
|Home||Cincinnati, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Kansas City, San Diego, St. Louis, Seattle, Jacksonville|

|Home||Baltimore, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Kansas City, San Diego, St. Louis, Seattle, Houston|
