Strength of Schedule:.508 - 12th toughest

The NFL schedule is formulaic so we know most of the schedule for future years. The Dolphins play one NFC Division each year, which accounts for four games a year. This year that is the NFC North. Then there are the six AFC East games each year, which include the BillsJets, and Patriots. The Dolphins also play a rotating AFC division each year -- this year that's the AFC West, which includes the Broncos, Chargers, Chiefs and Raiders. From there they play the two teams in each of the remaining AFC divisions that finished in the same spot in the standings as they did in the previous year -- that's the Ravens (AFC North) and Jaguars (AFC South) this year.

Assuming the scheduling process remains the same for the NFL (they last reset it in 2009), we can look forward to the next few seasons' schedules as well.

2015 Schedule: AFC East (home-and-home series), AFC South (vs Houston, vs Indianapolis, @ Jacksonville, @ Tennessee), NFC East (vs Dallas, vs New York Giants, @ Philadelphia, @ Washington), vs AFC North Division finish, @ AFC West Division finish

2016 Schedule: AFC East (home-and-home), AFC North (vs Cleveland, vs Pittsburgh, @ Baltimore, @ Cincinnati), NFC West (vs Arizona, vs San Francisco, @ Seattle, @ St. Louis), vs AFC South Division finish, @ AFC West Division finish
