The results show that nine of the 10 teams with 10+ wins this season had overcame the strength of schedule. The 10 teams that had an easier strength of schedule did not end the season well. Only the Chargers, Falcons and Panthers made the playoffs. The Lions who finished the season with an 0-16 record was facing the 24th easiest schedule to start the season.
