I like the website www.mratings.com. The guy does stistical analysis of all sorts of sports, and his college football stats are used as part of the BCS.
Anyway, here is his strength assesment for the NFL:
Indianapolis: #2 schedule in the NFL.
Chicago: 30th. (THIRTIETH!) – the second EASIEST schedule in the NFL, and this ranking includes their playoff games!
Hey, the Bears beat the teams on their schedule, so I’m not hatin’ on the Bears here. They didn’t put the schedule together. But the Colts played the exact polar opposite schedule and only had one more loss all season (and due to the playoff bye week, the Colts have the same number of wins as the Bears – Colts are 15-4, Bears 15-3).
Before I knew this, I thought the Colts wouold roll the Bears. Now I’m pretty certain that the Colts could have the game wrapped up by halftime.
