That is the toughest stretch in the schedule for sure. However, we are lucky to have both the Saints and the Giants at home. That's huge.
Redskins should be feared. The Packers are always tough, but they have been quietly declining the last few years, and I think that continues this year. Still, hard to win in Lambau, but I like our chances against them at home week 17.
As for the Lions, who knows.
Ravens? I think people will see how average their offense is (and Flacco) without Boldin. They had some cap casualties, so it will be interesting to see how they fare this year. I think they are beatable.
The biggest question, of course, isn't any of our opponents, it is how will OUR team do with new players at key positions and a new coaching staff and offensive system. There are a TON of question marks. Lots of reason for optimism, but it could just as easily be a rough year. We just don't know, and we won't until we are a few games in.
