The 2017 NFL schedule was officially released yesterday, meaning teams now know what the road to Super Bowl LII in Minnesota will look like.

For some teams, the road will be a lot less bumpy than for others, but no matter what the slate of games looks like, every team will be tested at some point next season.

So, who has the easiest strength of schedule and who has the toughest? Check out the video below to see where your team ranks.

The Colts have the easiest strength of schedule for the 2017 season, but that doesn't mean anything for a team that has failed to make the playoffs the past two seasons.

The defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots come in at No. 12, but I don't think any schedule is too difficult for a team like them.

The Broncos, just a year removed from a Super Bowl championship of their own, have the league's toughest schedule. With a new head coach coming in and their quarterback situation still a big question mark, the Broncos may very well have a tough go of it next year. With the Chiefs and Raiders emerging as legitimate Super Bowl contenders in the AFC West, the Broncos' long-run of division superiority may well be over for the foreseeable future.


The 2017 NFL schedule is out and fans everywhere are clearing their autumn Sundays to make sure they're in front of the TV for the biggest matchups of the year. To help you wade through the 256-game slate, here are the best 13 games of the year. Plan accordingly. The 13 can't-miss games on the 2017 NFL schedule. (Get ready for some Cowboys.)
