Breaks of the Schedule/Season
Didn't know if thus was a good idea or not but I thought it would be fun to have a reference point to see the breaks of the schedule for each team. For instance, to post major injuries/players that miss a game against one North team but play against another team during the season and note when your players get injured during games. Just too see how quickly things can change with our opponents during the season and then discuss the implications/have a quick reference of all the injuries.
I'll start it off with the bye breaks/short/long weeks.
Play after their bye week: GB bye: Home vs Detroit
Min bye: Home vs Detroit
Chi bye : Away vs Atlanta
Det bye: Home vs St Louis
Byes are good for all but GB/Min probably want a better opponent to have 2 weeks to prepare for but Detroit does have 11 new starters so it should help. Really stinks for Detroit on the road twice. Really good for Chicago to prepare for Atlanta.
Teams coming off a bye week:
Detroit: play at GB and at Min off byes
GB: play at Tampa after their bye
Chicago/Min: No opponents with byes
Tampa seeminly an easier a game becomes a little tougher on the road and after a bye for GB. Chi/Min catch a break with no byes and for Detroit it makes at Min/at GB that much tougher.
Chicago will have a short week to prepare for at San Fran and then longer to prepare for Philly(home). Green Bay is then short to prepare for the second at Detroit game and then longer to prepare for Baltimore(home). Short week for Detroit again on Thanksgiving vs GB and then longer to prepare for at Cincy.
