The Packers will open the 2014 season against the Seattle Seahawks, but if they can get past the current Super Bowl champions, then the rest of the season should open up nicely. Wins against the Carolina Panthers, New Orleans Saints, Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots will prove difficult, but the rest of the Packers' 2014 NFL schedule lacks of powerhouse offenses.

Even though the Colts' offense finished the 2013 season ranked 17th in passing yards and 21st in rushing yards, the 2014 schedule for Indianapolis looks very promising for an undefeated season. Much like the Green Packers, the Colts will have their toughest matchup all season in the very first game against the Denver Broncos. After that, the toughest opponents for the Colts will be against the AFC North and the New England Patriots.

If the Saints can get past division rival Carolina Panthers twice and find a way to beat the San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers, their schedule would allow for a perfect season. The Saints will play against the Atlanta Falcons and Tampa Bay Buccaneers twice, and they will also face the Cleveland Browns and Minnesota Vikings early in the season. Smooth sailing ahead for the New Orleans Saints.

The NFC East is always a difficult division to find a win in, but Chip Kelly could lead the Eagles to a perfect season if he can get things to click on both offense and defense. The Colts, 49ers, Panthers, Packers and Seahawks will be some of the toughest teams to play against in the 2014 NFL season, but the offense of the Eagles can find a way to beat all of them.

The Patriots are not only early favorites to play for a Super Bowl in 2014, but their schedule is one of the softest in the AFC. If Tom Brady can lead the team to victory against the Colts, Broncos and Packers, then the Patriots could once again repeat their perfect regular season from 2007.
