THE STEELERS face the fourth-weakest schedule (.473), and it is even juicier considering Rashard Mendenhall & Co. get the feeble defenses of the Texans, Jaguars and Browns (twice).
2 Baltimore RAVENS
BALTIMORE'S CROSSOVER opponents are from the woeful NFC West. Sure the Ravens face the Steelers (twice) and the Jets, but it is smooth sailing otherwise.
3 Tennessee TITANS
THE SLATE might be reason enough to draft Chris Johnson No. 1 overall. The defenses of the Colts, Texans and Jags in the AFC South are famously forgiving. And Tennessee plays last season's AFC cellar dwellers and the NFC South.
4 Dallas COWBOYS
THE BOYS open with the Jets and have to face the Pats, Eagles (twice) and Giants (twice), but the other 10 weeks are loaded with potential patsies. —ERIC MACK
