Default 2011 schedule- 2 super short weeks

Twice in December the league has given us extra short weeks. We play the Bengals at home on Sunday December 4th followed up by a Thursday night game at home against the Browns on December 8th. Then, we travel to San Fran to play a Monday night game on December 19th followed by a 1pm Saturday Christmas Eve game against the Rams at home. Even with a red eye home, Tuesday is shot, meaning we will only have 3 days in between for each of these scenarios.

Short weeks are always tough on teams and I believe the win % after they played a Monday night game the week before is lower than the norm. I can't remember the last time we've had 2 extra short weeks in the same season, let alone in the same month. Hopefully we come out ok. After our bye week our schedule looks pretty easy on paper, but the schedule could throw a little monkey wrench in a perfect stretch run.
