    Rams Opponents Through 2009

    Not sure if you all knew this.


    Here you go:


    Monday, January 17, 2005
    The NFL’s new scheduling format includes the following elements:
    • There will be an increased common-opponent emphasis with every team in a division playing against 14 common opponents.
    • All teams will play each other on a regular basis, home and away, for a more consistent presentation of attractive games, eliminating the many schedule aberrations of the past.
    • Teams are guaranteed to play all non-division opponents in their conference at least once every three years, and at home at least once every six years.
    • Every AFC team will play every NFC team once every four years, and at home once every eight years.
    • A team’s record from the previous year will have less of a bearing on its schedule, with only two (rather than four) opponents being based on the previous year’s standing. Thus, the so-called “easy” fifth-place schedules are eliminated.
    • The division in which a team resides will be less of a factor in a team’s won-loss record with 10 of 16 games each year being against non-division teams.

    Under the new scheduling formula, every team within a division will play 16 games as follows:
    • Home and away against its three division opponents (6 games).
    • The four teams from another division within its conference on a rotating three-year cycle (4 games).
    • The four teams from a division in the other conference on a rotating four-year cycle (4 games).
    • Two intraconference games based on the prior year's standings (2 games). These games will match a first-place team against the first-place teams in the two same-conference divisions the team is not scheduled to play that season. The second-place, third-place, and fourth-place teams in a conference will be matched in the same way each year.

    I love the suspense of the schedule normally, but this gives me one less thing to obsess/worry about.
