Here’s a look at the home and away opponents for the NFC East in 2014. The Washington Redskins look like they could have a brutal regular season schedule with road games against the Cardinals, 49ers, Colts, and the Texans in addition to their NFC East rivals. The Texans have a talented team that collapsed this season, but they will not be a pushover next season.
Of course with free agency and injuries changing a team’s fortunes almost overnight in today’s NFL world, something that looks tough now may not be like that next fall. That goes for any team in the league. Just look at what happened to the Packers after QB Aaron Rodgers went down this season with an injury. It almost cost them a playoff berth, but they were lucky enough to get him back in time to save their season. Many teams don’t get a nice break like that.
