So I’m in the process of coming up with one observation from every team’s 2012 schedule, and I noticed an interesting trend.
Three different sets of division rivals plays both times only two weeks apart.
The Ravens and Steelers play on November 18 and December 2. The Vikings and Bears play on November 25 and December 9. And the Colts and Texans play on December 16 and December 30.
I can’t recall this happening so often in one season. Frankly, I can’t recall it ever happening for one set of rivals.
Feel free to refresh my memory in the comments. And if it also means calling me an idiot, I’m OK with that.
