With the schedules finally being released, we wanted to take a look at who really has it easier in 2015. Our buddies at NumberFire also thought it would be interesting and took the time to calculate all the metrics. What they found is really interesting based on current measurables. Of course, it could all change multiple times until kickoff in week one based on draft and injuries.
