Now that the season is over, we can finally start talking about next year’s schedule.

The NFL came out with its annual strength of schedule list. Strength of schedule is determined by calculating the combined winning percentage of all of a team’s regular season opponents for a particular season.

The Denver Broncos have the second most difficult schedule in 2014. The combined winning percentage of the team’s they will face is .570. Only the Raiders have a more difficult schedule (.578). This comes as no surprise since the AFC West had three playoff teams in 2013.

The AFC South has the “easiest” schedule in the league with the Colts taking home the 32nd slot.

Last season, the Broncos had the second easiest schedule, playing teams with a combined winning percentage of .430.

This year the Broncos have home games against the Bills, Dolphins, Cardinals, and 49ers. They will play the Patriots, Jets, Rams, Seahawks, and Bengals on the road in addition to their two meetings with division rivals.
