The games are all lined up for the St. Louis Rams in 2012.

They have the fourth most difficult schedule in the league, according to John Clayton, thanks to games against the NFC North and the AFC East. Fortunately, the rest of the NFC West plays those teams as well.

The schedule makers gave the Rams one prime time game this season, scheduled for the Thursday night contest in Week 5 on the NFL Network.

Check out the complete schedule after the jump.

A couple thoughts:

  • 5 home games to 3 away games before the midseason bye. Does that lend itself to a favorable first half or a brutal stretch run?
  • Speaking of, four of five at home heading into the bye sets the Rams up for a favorable stretch, though they do finish with Green Bay and New England (in London) before the week off.
  • Will the Rams get a taste of Tebow in mid-November? My money, and all of my hopes, are on yes.
  • The final four games, should the Rams be in any contention for the playoffs, are stacked with drama. Especially...
  • A week 17 replay of the 2010 week 17 contest. Will the stakes be as high? Will the result be reversed?

What are your initial reactions?

Where's the toughest stretch?

Does this affect your outlook on the Rams' chances in 2012?
