The current setup can still end up with up to three consecutive home (or away) games against a specific team because a "1 vs 1" plays home twice in a row (or away twice in a row) and then in the third year those two teams could meet in "this division vs that division", and that div-div rotation could happen to be be on the same home/away rotation.
Oh well thanks Ive always thought that schedule rotation and the 2 additional games that we play were synchronized.

like we played the Broncos in 07 in Denver but it was a non-rotational game and we're playing them this year in Denver and I was wondering why 2 consecutive games in Denver it made no-sense.And yeah didnt think about the 31 teams in 2001.

Then I appologize for the false statement that ive made ....league wants the pats to win the SB but they cant fix the schedule :p
