I heard that they were next month, but I don't know for sure. Does anyone have an estimation? When did they come out last year?

Does anyone know why we are slated to play Denver at home when 4 years ago we played them at home and 8 years ago at Denver?

"West Coast" modification

Under the original 2002 formula, those teams scheduled to play all the AFC West clubs had to travel to both Oakland and San Diego in the same season, while those clubs playing the NFC West had to make their way to both San Francisco and Seattle.[4] In fact, during the 2008 season, the New England Patriots and New York Jets each had to make cross-country trips to all four of the aforementioned West Coast teams.

As a result, after all of the teams had cycled through playing against each other both home and away by the end of the 2009 season, the league tweaked the formula, especially to relieve East Coast teams from having to travel to the West Coast multiple times during the same season. Under the modifications implemented in 2010, clubs now only have to visit one West Coast team (AFC West or NFC West), plus one western team from the same division closer to the Midwest. Specifically, for games against the AFC West, those clubs traveling to Oakland would then have a road game played at Denver to go along, while those playing at San Diego would have a trip to Kansas City to go along. For those playing NFC West teams, some will travel to both San Francisco and Arizona in the same season, while others will instead make trips to Seattle and St. Louis. Further, teams playing against the two West divisions play the other pairings at home opposite to who they visit on the road. When teams playing against the AFC West visit Oakland and Denver on the road they will host San Diego and Kansas City at home, or visiting San Diego and Kansas City on the road while hosting Oakland and Denver at home. Teams playing against the NFC West will visit San Francisco and Arizona on the road while hosting Seattle and St. Louis at home, or visit Seattle and St. Louis on the road while hosting San Francisco and Arizona at home.[citation needed]

Each pairing with the 4 teams from the two divisions changed. Formerly, the pairings were Oakland with San Diego and Denver with Kansas City in the AFC West, San Francisco with Seattle and Arizona with Saint Louis in the NFC West. Now, the pairings are put together differently. The Bay Area teams (Oakland and San Francisco) are paired with the Mountain Time Zone teams (Arizona and Denver). Oakland and Denver for the AFC West, San Francisco and Arizona for the NFC West. The corner of the Pacific Ocean teams (San Diego and Seattle) are paired with the Missouri teams (Kansas City and St. Louis). San Diego and Kansas City for the AFC West, Seattle and St. Louis for the NFC West.[citation needed]
