Which NFL team has the toughest schedule? Which has the easiest?

I ranked the strength of schedule for all 32 teams — from the most difficult to the easiest — by averaging my initial team ratings of each of their opponents.

I’m also highlighting the number of games I have each team projected to be favored in as well as their easiest and hardest games according to my point spread projections.
