The Carolina Panthers have the toughest road to Super Bowl based on the strength of their 2013 schedule.
The Panthers will play teams in 2013 with a combined 138-116-2 record from last season as they look to improve on their 7-9 mark in 2012.
The Denver Broncos, the defending AFC West champions, will play the easiest schedule based on 2012 results, lining up against teams with a combined 110-146 record. That's one of the perks of playing in a division with the Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders, and San Diego Chargers.

Carolina Panthers have toughest 2013 strength of schedule - NFL.com
The sad thing is that this is really not a very difficult schedule. I think going back to the power blocking scheme is automatically an improvement over this last season. I say somewhere between 6-8 wins, maybe more if all the stars align correctly for us.
I see at the least 7 teams on that schedule that we have a decent chance of beating. No one knows what 2013 will bring.
If we are not a lot better I see one win there... Jax and that is IF MJD is hurt or not there. KC will be much better with the staff they have in place. Every one on that list will be better except us, Jax and SD. SD is still better than us even if they don't improve.
Going to be a VERY long season.
After watching this team last yr I am expecting the very worst this upcoming season. Right now I'm saying 2-3 wins.
This is phucking depressing, I only see 4 wins and that's stretching it. Maybe..... Just maybe if we can get the running game going back in the Top 5 bracket, we can smell 7-8 wins. Some of those teams will be better next year. Defense will have to pick up where they left off along with that run game with a reduction in Pamlers TO's with ALOT of Pryor and and improved Criner in the RZ. One can only hope.
That schedule doesn't look 4 th easiest
At least we'll hold the tiebreaker advantage for 2014 draft. Strength of schedule is the 3rd tiebreaker I think.
I'm seeing maybe 3 wins, hopefully a fluke 4th win.
We won't win more than 2.
silver lining for 2014... Jadeveon Clowney? ;D
I'm on record for 9-7. I refuse to let reality get the best of my optimistic spirit! We'll shock the world and then some!
I'm going to the Dallas game, so that'll be nice
I think we'll go 6-10 or 7-9..Wouldn't be such a bad season IMO
