The NFL released the schedule for all 32 team Tuesday, and as one in poised to do, we wanted to take a look at who has the toughest slate in front of them in order to make it to the Super Bowl.

Not only did the Houston Texans gain some national notoriety with four prime time games, plus the Thanksgiving Day game, they have one of the easiest schedules laid out in front of them in order to return to the playoffs.

Dallas has one of the tougher 2012 schedules, tied for 11th on the list.
