Bills’ remaining strength of schedule heading into bye

The Buffalo Bills will not play in Week 11. Unfortunately their last-second loss to the Arizona Cardinals, 32-30, is going to stick in their minds for awhile. Still, the Bills (7-3) earned their rest.

Once Week 12 rolls around, the Bills will have six more games to get after it. Regardless of how the Miami Dolphins (6-3) do in Week 11 while Buffalo isn’t playing, it’s still going to be a tight race for the AFC East from here on out. Should be fun.

So now onto the all important question, how difficult is the Bills’ remaining strength of schedule once they do get back to the gridiron? Just two weeks ago, the Bills had the fourth-hardest schedule left. Now that number has dropped to the middle of the pack.

According to Tankathon, the Bills have the 13th hardest remaining strength of schedule. But the downside is that the Dolphins unfortunately have a bit easier ride with the 20th spot locked up.
