A few hours away from knowing the NFL 2022 calendar, it is time to give us an idea of how complicated the next season can be for the teams. This famous term of “Schedule Difficulty” (Strength of Schedule in English) is nothing more than the number that is obtained from the number of combined victories in the past season of the rivals that will face the following season between the total of combined games of the same rivals. To understand it better, let’s do the following example:
An assumed case where the 17 opponents they will face won 10 games and lost seven in 2021 would give us a combined opponents record of 170-119 (289 games). So to know the Calendar Difficulty we would have to divide 170 by 289 which would give us 0.588.
But since not all rivals have the same record, you have to add their wins and losses to get the combined record. And this index, the higher it is, gives us an idea of how complicated the following season can be, but it is only an assumption because it does not tell us that the teams will maintain the same level as last season.
So with that explained, let’s take a look at the Calendar Difficulty chart heading into the next season.
