    Please note that Denver is the additional opponent for both Jacksonville and Indianapolis. Indy and Jacksonville may be playing in London next year, but both teams are to play Denver as well, and not play each other (indy/Jax) a third time.

    What if the Seahawks and Raiders/Chargers switch conference because both Oakland and San Diego move to LA?

      They won’t move anybody for 2016. They will most likely stay in their divisions whether they move to LA or not…

      Legit kuestion. They’ll probably iust flip the skhedules, ᴇven though the Sᴇahawks finished #2 in their division. More lɪkely the Rams would switch with the Raiders, #3 for #3. Buffalo would then bᴇ the lɪkely Rams opponent in London.

    Does anyone have a predicted ACTUAL roster out? I have seen some grids put in place with what looks like to be the full schedule for 2016. How accurate are these things ?
