It is pretty simple, it is a rotation.

 

2008, 2012, 2016 - we played NFC North. 2008, 2011, 2014, 2017 - we played AFC North.

 

You play same NFC divisions every 4 years and same AFC divisions every 3 years. Every 12 years, you play the same ones, so we play the NFC North and AFC North. Home or away, we alternate.

 

2008 - we played the Bears here, and 0-16 Lions here, 2012 - we played them on the road, 2016 - we played them here, 2020 - we play them on the road and same with Packers and Vikings, we played them at home here in 2012 (Chuck Strong game with Wayne going off) and Vikings at home in 2012, played them away in 2016, so play them here again.

 

There are 2 games decided by your positioning in your division - 3rd place. So, we play the 3rd place team in the AFC East and AFC West, thus playing Jets and Raiders. When a division is not in the rotation in entirety, the home and away rotates based on how you played them last year. Played the Dolphins at home this year, so play the Jets away next year. Last time AFC West was not in rotation was 2018 when we played at Raiders where we won 42-28, so we play them at home next year.

 

So, AFC North rotation, NFC North rotation, and the AFC divisions not in rotation (AFC East and AFC West) explained above.

The dreaded at Pittsburgh matchup again!? Who at the league office is torturing us??? 

It’s a rotation.  Next year the Colts play the whole AFC north.  This year they played the whole AFC West.  2021 they will play at Buffalo and Miami while New England and New York come to Indy.

It’s a rotation you don’t really need a source.  You play one division in your conference every three years alternating home and road games, same with the NFC, just every four years, your six division games, and the two remaining division teams in your conference that finish in the same position as you.

A lot of the bad teams this year will be a lot better next year. So like ciny and lions jets.. bengals will be getting burrows, lions will be getting Stafford back jets have another year to develope Sam darnald and get his weapons.. don’t be expecting too much from this team especially when we lose to teams like the dolphins

Do you really think the Bengals and Lions will be better next year? I don't see it. Those teams have a lot of holes to fill especially the Bengals. The Bengals defense will be a lot older as well. As far as Stafford goes, we don't know how he's going to come back from an injury like that. Who is Burrow going to throw the ball to? The Bengals have no receivers and AJ Green is old.

Besides the Pittsburgh game all our tough out of division games are at home. It’s a favorable schedule considering.  I think last time GB came to town we had one heck of a comeback with Arians as coach. Was that the first game after Chuck was diagnosed with cancer? 

It was the First ChuckStrong game. Comeback win. Reggie with his orange gloves.

I thought everyone knew this.

The other games are against teams that finished their divisions in same rank.

I'll probably attend the Pittsburgh game again. Very nice stadium + fan atmosphere. 

I went to tons of games at the old Three Rivers stadium including the ‘95 AFC Championship.  Saw Marino, barry sanders,  Walter payton.  All the greats..

Three rivers had this little 3 or 4 piece band that played during games.  Their big “song” was the theme to the odd couple. Now we have bog screens, wifi, etc at games and its those old obscure things that i miss about games.  I could say that about Christmas too.  Iur senses are over-worked.

By far the most difficult schedule since I joined in 2012.  Especially the home schedule!

 

Wowza!

 

Maybe we will have to get Clever for Trevor!    2021 here we come!

Why wouldnt we get them at home, makes no sense not to rotate...


That’s because we played Steelers at home in 2017 as part of entire AFC North rotation, like 2020.

 

The 2019 game was an AFC North game outside the entire AFC North rotation on the road due to 2018 same place AFC North Bengals game at home, first game we lost vs Bengals when Luck returned. The 2021 AFC North game will similarly be at home against same place AFC North team.

    • Sold, I guess it will be obvious how to do BPA/Need?  I don't know how much of the time I can be on what with driving kids all over the place and stuff.
    • You don't really need to know a lot about CFB.  All you really need to do once you get your team is Know your team's needs (I'll post a few links with team needs) Peruse a big board or two and identify targets (I'll post a few of these too, and we'll have a thread updated real time to show what's available) Show up at your scheduled time, and make your pick from who is available. 
    • As far as the history of teams turning things around from the regular season, it happens enough years based on history that your "not too many" indicates it is uncommon based on most of our interpretation. Trust me when I say this, don't take it personal, you would not be the first person trying to cover his/her bases in an argument in this forum based on semantics and this won't be the first time you will do it either. I have had my share.     I just gave 1 year worth of examples. Patriots vs Steelers 2004, Steelers vs Colts 2005, Giants vs Patriots 2007, Ravens vs Broncos 2012, all SB winners, and there is always a few teams that DO turn around results from the regular season that end up going the distance in the playoffs (few because only 12 made the playoffs till it was changed to 14 this year). Those are just noteworthy for being SB winners. 2010 Jets vs Patriots, 2015 Broncos vs Steelers are other examples too.   Just last year, Ravens vs Titans and Browns vs Steelers (with a healthy Big Ben) adds to the examples I gave you for reversing regular season results. These are just off the top of my head. The bottom line is, it happens enough times that it is not uncommon at all that I felt the Colts had more than a puncher's chance vs the Bills.   Regardless, welcome to the forum and hope to see you post more.  
    • SOunds cool.  Don't know enough about CFB to be much more than a place holder for automatic though.  I'll be interested in the results though.
    • I'm thinking we start on Monday evening, is that cool with you and @NFLfan  ?   I got the text of the big board done last night (top 340 from NFL.com). Going to coordinate with NFLfan tonight to get it published, pinned, and locked (so it's read only and only updatable by NFLfan).   As soon as we get enough GMs, we'll do the lottery. Thinking we'll do some kind of blind lotto with one of us with the "key", and another using a random numeric generator to ensure it's blind/fair.   Any fans of other teams like @JoeThornburg of the Steelers , we'll auto assign their team (unless there are multiple fans of that team). The rest of the Colts fans, we'll put through the lotto.
