NE Patriots have only played in 14 regular season games west of the rockies since 2000. (Most are against Denver of course).
4 of those games that were in 2008 were back to back road games that they conveniently stayed on the west coast (how nice schedulers).
Seattle Seahawks have played in 17 eastern standard times games since 2007!!!
None were back to back road games that would play in favor of the traveling team (unless you count going from San Francisco one week to Pittsburgh the next).
Come on, now. That's not "BS of the NFL schedulers."
Know how many NFL teams are west of the Rockies? 6, if you count Denver (which is technically east of the Rockies, in the foothills). That means there are 25 other teams east of the Rockies for the Pats to play.
Not to mention that half of those teams west of the Rockies are in the NFC, which means the Pats will play them only once every 4 years anyway, and only once every 8 years out west.
Know how many teams are in the Eastern time zone? 16 (essentially every team east of Indy and Tennessee).
In other words, that's not some biased NFL scheduling... it's just math.
