    The Titans have the 4th toughest schedule.

    Buffalo Bills, .539
    Oakland Raiders .539
    New England Patriots .535
    Tennessee Titans .520
    Indianapolis Colts .516

    The Arizona Cardinals have the softest schedule with .461.

    (The .520 etc. is the opponents' 2006 Pct. of record as a whole)

    Rule Changes

    Instant replay is a permanent rule. Down by contact is now a reviewable play.

    Spiking of the ball - spike or throwing the ball after a down has ended is a 5 yard penalty, except after a touchdown.

    15 yard penalty, rather than 5 yards, for a player to make a block below the waist against an eligible receiver while the quarterback is in the pocket.

    I like the schedule. It challenges us, and we always respond strongly. I mean look at last year.....we beat the Super Bowl champs once and almost the second time too!
