They rank the Atlanta Falcons with the most difficult path to the playoffs as their opponents are projected to have 136 wins. The New York Giants have the second most difficult road at 135.3.

Washington is ranked as having the 8th most difficult road with their opponents projected to have 132 wins on the year.

The site breaks it down further into first-half and second-half totals.

SBD says Redskins opponents are projected to have 66.5 wins in the first and 65.5 in the second. So about break-even, despite a killer stretch in late November and December.

The Redskins open and close the season with the Philadelphia Eagles. 

**Per BetOnline (, the Redskins are still only favored in two games and a pick'em in one as was the case before the NFL Draft and the schedule release.

The Ravens, who play the Redskins in week four, are favored in all 16 games.

San Francisco is favored in 13, including when they host the Redskins. They have two pick'em contests. 

As for Redskins opponents who could be picked apart:

Cincinnati is favored in one game, underdogs in 14 and a pick’em in one.

Carolina is favored in two, underdogs in 13 with one pick’em.

The New York Giants are favored in one, underdogs in 12 and a pick’em in three.
