P is for making the playoffs.

Carolina looks to be in an excellent position to trade back but still remain in the top 6 since they don't need a QB. Could pick up a lot of picks from Miami or Washington.

Interesting that Detroit had the third hardest schedule so far behind just St. Louis and Minny, and NE had the second easiest schedule behind Houston and a ridiculously easy schedule the rest of the way.
For anybody who doesn't think a team's schedule is important, please notice how weak a schedule most of the teams that currently make the playoffs, have.

It's important to note that the team winning most of their games so far dramatically affects the overall winning percentage of their opponents. For example, if the Packers had played 9 teams the Packers played had beat them, the overall winning percentage would increase from 49% to 60%, and they'd have the toughest schedule so far this year. Each win at this point is worth an almost 2% change and the biggest difference in opposing winning percentage is 14% currently, so I don't know that those numbers mean all that much right now.


Edit: That's not to undersell the importance of strength of schedule, for the record. Obviously, going up against a bunch of teams that are 2-7 will help a team win football games, but the overall records are a poor way of showing it at this point for that reason.

The fact that Detroit has the second toughest schedule is shocking. Just compare their schedule to Chicago's. Throw out the common games and the games they have played against each other. Chicago has played Green Bay, New Orleans, Carolina, and Philadelphia. Detroit has played San Francisco, Dallas, Denver, and Kansas City. Chicago's is definitely tougher. Detroit's opponents just happen to have a better record.

Figures, bad enough to be impossible to watch but not bad enough to get Matt Kalil. Thankfully our schedule the rest of the way is rough*.
