There are no easy schedules in the NFL. Most games are decided by 1 or 2 plays.


You can analyze all the teams before the season but there are a lot of changes after the season-opening kickoff. That’s the way the league is built; that’s the way the game is played. Sure, there are teams that get mired in the mud — Jaguars — and there are others that always seem to make the playoffs, but check how often divisional races flip flop year to year.


The NFL is built for parity with the draft and the salary cap. And then there’s the physical nature of the game. Injuries play a huge role in winning and losing.


Imagine the Jaguars without Trevor Lawrence or the Chiefs without Patrick Mahomes.


And you can’t ignore, obviously, how players develop and how poorly scouts evaluate players. What if No. 1 pick Bryce Young flops? The Panthers are in trouble.  What happens if QB C.J. Stroud and LB Will Anderson are immediate stars? The Texans might be playoff bound. Aaron Rodgers may be done. Poor Jets.


All you can do is sit back and enjoy.
