PS.  I don't put much weight in strength-of-schedule but thought it should be posted here anyway.

  It's because of the division they play in.... a huge advantage.  Not one team in that division is cumulatively over a .500 record since Brady took over.  And while the Pats had double digit wins for 15 of the 16 years in this analysis I pulled together (94% of the time), the other three teams only had double digit wins 9 times combined (18% of the time).  Until the AFC East gets their heads out of their asses, the Pats SOS will always be reasonably low.  Sorry that the sorting is a little screwy... I tried to align as well as possible before I posted, but I see that it changed a bit anyway....

It's basically the AFC west; NFC east; and the AFC east making up the top ten.

And those two are playing each other.
Go Giants!
