It's officially the day of the 2014 NFL schedule release, which means we'll all be waiting with bated breath at 8 p.m. for the least exciting major event on the NFL calendar. We are sheep, but still, it'll be nice to know the schedule.
While we wait to be sheared, I thought I'd re-list the Falcons' 2014 opponents and get your take on the strength of schedule. Right now, the Falcons are listed as having the 11th toughest strength of schedule based on 2013 opponent records. This isn't a particularly reliable method of forecasting, but it does help us understand that the Falcons probably aren't catching a schedule break this season.
In case you've forgotten, here's the full list of 2014 opponents:
2014 AWAY GAMES
Carolina, Tampa Bay, New Orleans, Green Bay, Minnesota, Baltimore, Cincinnati, NY Giants.
2014 HOME GAMES
Carolina, Tampa Bay, New Orleans, Detroit (in London), Chicago, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Arizona.
