    Summary of 25 articles · Updated Apr 23, 2014
    The 49ers should really like this schedule. That is the first thing that catches the eye when looking at the schedule. There aren't any major road trips on this schedule; the longest the Texans will be on the road is back-to-back, which happens twice with the Raiders and Giants in Weeks 2 and 3 and Weeks 7 and 8 with Pittsburgh and Tennessee. Aside from having to finish the season in Seattle for a third consecutive year, there's one glaring complaint the Rams and their fans could have from this schedule that jumps out right away: A brutal eight-game stretch against teams with winning records in 2013 that comes after an early bye week. It will be an early chance for the Patriots to get a jump on the division as they won't see another AFC East foe until Weeks 6 and 7 at the Bills and at home on Thursday night against the Jets. 10th, .516 | 10.5 Sunday, Sep. 7, at Miami, 1 p.m. Sunday, Sep. 14, at Minnesota, 1 p.m. Sunday, Sep. 21, Oakland, 1 p.m. Monday, Sep. 29, at Kansas City, 8:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 5, Cincinnati, 8:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 12, at Buffalo, 1 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 16, NY Jets, 8:25 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 26, Chicago, 1 p.m. Sunday, Nov.
