You do know that "first place schedule" means 2 games different than what they might've been, while sitting in a cushy cupcake 6-game division schedule.
"Strength of Schedule" in the NFL is largely irrelevant year to year. You can have a tough schedule, but it generally has nothing to do with how you placed the year before.
