2018 Schedule Highlights
Apr. 20, 2018 - Here are the top-line takeways:
We open at home vs. Redskins
Three of first four games are at home,
Maxmium number of consecutive Away games are two (it happens three times during the season)
Our Bye Week is smack dab in the middle of the season (Week #9)
We have one 10 am (AZT) game (@ Vikes) and three 11 am (AZT) games (@ KC, @ GB and @ Atlanta)
Potential Snow/Cold/Ice Days: Dec. 2 @ Green Bay and Dec. 16 & Atlanta (with Nov. 11 @ KC an extreme long shot).
Final Game (could mean a playoff spot/or could be irrelevent) is Dec. 30 @ Seattle.
The other teams in our division each appear five-times on non-Sunday afternoon national TV.
But other than the national tv snub, I think we came our pretty good - no lengthy road trips; we open at home; (with the exception of the GB game), we're unlikely to be clobbered by blizzards.
