The schedule does get harder. 26 remaining games,14 against stonger teams 12 against weaker however, buffalo have 27 remaining games, 18 against stronger, 9 against weaker. NYR have 27 remaining...17 stronger, 10 weaker.

Atlanta do have a favorable schedule , they have 26 remaining games, 11 against stronger and 15 against weaker or equal(ex. NYR, buff...)

The reason why i am 100% we are going to make the playoffs is that:

If we even go .500 in the last 26 games(13-13), buffalo would have to go 19-8, nyr would have to go 19-7-1 and atlanta would have to go 20 - 6.

we may not go .500 but i cant see more than 2 or 3 games below. 12-14 would mean 88 pts, 11-15 means 86pts. Buff, atl,Fla, and NYR have to at least go 6 games above .500 to reach that.
